Never Too Late: If you missed the IPKat last week!

Have you so been busy changing your bad eating habits that you missed the IPKat last week? Don’t worry, here is the 116th edition of Never Too Late.

Neil Wilkof considers the complexity of TRIPS and the WTO dispute resolution mechanism as thoroughly discussed by Professor Matthew Kennedy, who warns of the danger of simply transplanting trade concepts into IP standards.

The IPKat team news: new arrivals and farewells
A warm welcome to the new GuestKats, Rosie Burbidge and Eibhlin Vardy!

Darren Smyth discusses the issue of the UK leaving the EU without Parliamentary approval. It highlights the UK legislative process in the context of Brexit and of what will be the fate of statutory instruments made under the European Communities Act 1972.

This book by Ian Waldon is a good reference for understanding the challenges of legal enforcement in the field of cybercrime. Katonomist Nicola Searle was particularly impressed by the  author's comprehensive analysis of online IP crimes.

AmeriKat Annesley Merelle Ward recaps several opinions made expressed before the Competitiveness Council session that encourages UK participation in the implementation without delay of the unitary patent package.

Round-up post of the week's news and forthcoming events.

Ellie Wilson was fascinated with this book, edited by Mark Perry, particularly by the fresh perspectives on “non-conventional” trade marks and the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution policy. A truly contemporary mosaic on IP governance.
