Why, when the year is 2005, does the IPKat receive volume 6, issue 6, for 2003-2004 of a well-regarded legal periodical in the field of IP? The answer is that this is Lawtext's BioScience Law Review, which adopts an unconventional, idiosyncratic calendar of its own which is designed to (i) baffle the tax man, (ii) confuse contributors and readers alike with its anachronism and (iii) violate everything that well-ordered folk like law librarians hold sacred. Anyway, the year is 2005, the volume is 2003-4 and the BioSLR goes its own sweet way. If it wasn't for the high quality of the content, says the IPKat, he thinks he'd catterwaul.

This is what it looks like ...

Interesting content in this issue includes the following:

* Cambridge University lecturer Kathleen Liddell writes on the mythical connection between data protection and confidentiality (always nice to see popular myths debunked);

* Nigel Jones (Linklaters) and David Marsh (Arnold & Porter) contrast UK and US approaches to the doctrine of equivalents in patent law.

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.
