The December/January issue of ten-times-a-year Managing Intellectual Property is now out. Published by Euromoney, this title carries a high-fibre diet of newsy and informative features, as well as its much loved/hated lists of most highly rated patent and trade mark firms in different jurisdictions. This issue contains, among other topics, the following items:

* Emma Barraclough writes on the slow progress/no progress that has been made in seeking to harmonise trade mark and patent grant procedures in the Asean countries;

The Laugh It Off case: a parody of Black Label goes to court
* Alan Smith writes on the South African "Laugh it Off" case and reviews the protection of well-known marks there.

* Editor James Nurton reviews the "top ten" IP blogs and says some very nice things about this one.

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.
