Around the weblogs 2. Writing on IP Draughts, Mark Anderson poses the question whether contracts might be better interpreted by computers than by judges: says Merpel. since so many contracts she sees look as though they have been drafted by computers in the first place, this may not be such a far-fetched notion. Elsewhere, following the lead of the IPKat, the Aistemos IP strategy and analytics blog has taken to posting its equivalent of our "Never Too Late" feature, summarising each month's blogposts for busy readers: here's its list of October posts.
Around the weblogs 3. Last Wednesday the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) and GRUR shared their sixth joint event, this being a seminar on Google, search engines and the impact, if any, of European competition law upon the company's colossal and apparently unassailable monopoly. There was some high-octane debate, fuelled by the positively inflammatory contribution of Torsten Körber (Chair of Civil Law, Antitrust Law, Insurance Law, Corporate Law and Regulation Law, University of Göttingen). Torsten, who has represented Google in competition-related issues, argued that the European Commission had not even begun to make out a case against Google, even there had been one. The event is recorded in two posts on the jiplp weblog. here and here.
