The BBC reports that there’s no rest for our patent judges. While most self-respecting IP lawyers are off on their summer hols Mr Justice Patten has granted an interim injunction in favour of Dreamworks, the studio responsible for the summer blockbusting film, Shrek 2. The 12 defendants, who remain unnamed, appear to have been offering pirated Shrek 2 DVDs of varying quality on auction websites such as eBay. The official DVD launch date of the film is scheduled for November.

The IPKat says no surprises here really. Everyone knows selling copyright infringing DVDs is naughty and can get you into trouble. He awaits the sport of a potential full trial.

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.
