The 88-page February issue of Euromoney's Managing Intellectual Property has a fresh feel about it, since the title has just been given something of a makeover. The paper's got a different feel to it and there are more words per page: this makes the new MIP better value for money (that's $790 a year, or 611 euro, or £421). Features include the following:
* "The claim game", a good critique of differences in patent claim construction that takes in the US (via Japan), Germany and the UK;

* "Alicante Answers" - Fabrizio Miazzetto argues that the choice of Alicante for the seat of Spain's Community design and Community trade mark courts will result in those courts becoming an important international forum;

The real reason why Alicante is likely to be a popular forum for international litigation ...

* A note by Jonathan Moskin on the recent US Supreme Court decision in KP Permanent Make-Up v Lasting Impression.

There's also another popularity survey, this time of patent practices in some 60 or so countries or zones, lavishly garlanded with profitable advertisements from firms that have received the most votes.

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.
