WIPO is good

The IPKat is grateful to James Heald for pointing him in the direction of a new page on the WIPO website which provides links to publicly available sources of national, regional and international intellectual property case law. The IPKat says well done WIPO for making IP jurisprudence easier to access.

WIPO isn't bad

Good news for WIPO Director General Kamil Idris. Ernst and Young have completed an investigation into allegations of certain irregularities at WIPO. While a number of recommendations for reform were made, the report stated :
"we cannot conclude that certain employees of WIPO and third parties concerned might have committed any fraud or dishonest acts."
The IPKat hopes all concerned will get on with doing the best for IP.

  1. This doesn't mean that WIPO isn't bad. It means that Ernst & Young haven't found the evidence.


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.
