Journal of Business Law

The first issue of Sweet & Maxwell's Journal of Business Law for 2006 has now been published. The IPKat notes an interesting article by Hazel Fleming (Lecturer in Law, University of Stirling) entitled 'An End to Brandsharing?', in which she analyses current European legislation to suppress the practice of using tobacco brands on non-tobacco products (somewhat inelegantly termed brandsharing, or brand-stretching). Hazel warns that the tobacco companies may yet find ways around even the stiffest restrictions, if the experience of France is anything to go by.

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.
