The IPKat has come across a novel way of promoting IP in the Shanghai Star. As part of national celebration of World Intellectual Property Day (the IPKat certainly indulged in jelly and balloons on 26 April – didn’t you?), Shangai is promotioning IP rights all this week. A key feature of the campaign is the establishment of a patent exchange centre which will be set up at the Shanghai Intellectual Property Park. The park was opened as part of last year’s marking of World IP Day and provides services such as innovation, transformation, intellectual property rights application and safeguarding and education of IP rights.

A place for IP lawyers to roam free…

The IPKat thinks that this is a good and informative way of making IP accessible to the people though he thinks that a public green-space devoted to an IP theme where overworked IP lawyers could go to frolic would be far more fun. Merpel wants to know, do visitors to the park get to walk among patented petunias, copyrighted camellias and trade marked tulips?

More parks to the IPKat’s liking here and here

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.
