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

Been away and want to catch up on last week's IP news? No problem! As always, the IPKat is here to bring you a quick summary -- the 146th edition of Never Too Late.

Italian court finds Google and YouTube liable for failing to remove unlicensed content (but confirms eligibility for safe harbour protection)

Is YouTube an active host and, if so, ineligible for the safe harbour protection within Article 14 of the E-commerce Directive? IPKat Eleonora Rosati analyses the interesting response provided by this decision of the Tribunale di Torino (Turin Court of First Instance).

Happy World IP Day! Miaowww🎈

Protecting the SOVEREIGN - The Royal Mint v The Commonwealth Mint

GuestKat Rosie Burbidge brings a very readable piece answering this question: “Can the Royal Mint register SOVEREIGN as a trade mark for ‘gold commemorative coins’”?



Mark Schweizer discusses freedom of panorama -- an area of law in Europe that has proved problematic.


IPKat Neil Wilkof provides his insights on the large shadow casted on ESPN in the hyper-charged world. 


IPKat Eleonora Rosati discusses the newly issued and meanwhile long-awaited CJEU’s decision in Filmpeler, C-527/15.


Ever-productive Eleonora gives a more detailed review on the Filmspeler decision, and explains why it is a MAJOR copyright decision.


IPKat Rosie Burbidge provides a closer look on the long-awaited US Supreme Court decision in Star Athletica v Varsity Brands.

Fordham 25

The AmeriKat, Annsley Merelle Ward, continues her reports from the Fordham IP Conference. This week she brings readers the parts of Pharma, IP & Competition, The sun rises on plausibility, but where (and when) will it set? and FRAND, SEPs & PAE's.


With the ink yet to dry on the judgment of Birss J on the non-technical issues arising from the Unwired Planet litigation ... Steven Willis (Bristows) updates readers the Court of Appeal’s decision in the first of the three related technical trials to receive judgment from the Patents Court in 2015/16. 


Dai Rees, former chairman of the Technical Board of Appeal and the author of “Inventive Step: The Stories We Tell”, explains to IPKat readers how one could go about telling a convincing invention story. 

Last but not the least, the weekly routines of IP round-up: Tuesday Miscellany, Around the IP Blogs and Never Too Late.
