Never Too Late: If you missed the IPKat last week

Did the last week of IPKat pass you by? Here is the 110th edition of Never Too Late with what you missed.

* Life after Cartier: The future of blocking injunctions – Simmons & Simmons Rapid Response EventKatfriend Jonathan Sharples looks back at our rapid response event discussing the Cartier decision and the availability of blocking injunctions to prevent trade mark infringement.

The InfoSoc Directive was found to introduce changes allowing graduated response systems as a form of injunction - independently of a finding of their liability, said Hogan J in Sony Music Entertainment Ireland Ltd & Ors v UPC Communications Ireland Ltd. Eleonora Rosati explains the judgment and its place in the context of EU law.

* Wednesday Whimsies
New EUIPO research on infringing business models, ITMA's Autumn seminar, UNION-IP events and more...

Andy Lee brings us an example of paying non-monetary issue fees (in relation to infringement) in practice, in this guest post. 

The US Supreme Court refused to review a big case concerning patentability of a diagnostic method - but on the bright side the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit may have just cleared up some uncertainty to the Alice/Mayo test. Mike Mireles explains all.

*  After the split: so is it HP, Hewlett Packard, Hewlett Packard Enterprise or what?
Neil Wilkof ponders the legacy of brands following a corporate split or acquisition.
