The IPKat has just received a copy of the 30th issue of the Proceedings of the Hungarian Group of AIPPI (the International Association for the Protection of Industrial Property). The Proceedings, happily published in English and even more happily revised by Timothy Holbrook, an Assistant Professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law), contain some cogent material that is of both practical importance and academic interest. Features include:

* Istvan Gödölle, “Bad Faith in Trademark Law”
* Éva Szigeti, “The Community Trade Mark and the Accession of Hungary to the EU”
* Endre Millisits, “Consumer Protection Aspects in the Hungarian Trademark Act”
* Vilmos Bacher, “Protection of Industrial Property Rights by Criminal Law, with regard to the Civil Law Aspects of Infringement”
* Tivadar Palágyi, “Main Features of the Amended Hungarian Patent Act”

The IPKat is pleased to see the high level of commitment and enthusiasm shown by Hungarian IP practitioners to the development of IP theory and to the monitoring of IP practice, which should stand it in good stead when that country enters the EU next month.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
