Trade Marks at the Limit

IPKat co-blogmeister Jeremy is editing a collection of essays, Trade Marks at the Limit, which should be published this May by Edward Elgar Publishing. These essays, written by legal practitioners, consultants and IP owners from the UK, the US and 13 other jurisdictions, focus on the limits of trade mark protection and on the unauthorised uses of another's trade mark that are nonetheless permitted by the law. Examples include comparative advertising, parody, referential use, nominative fair use and freedom of speech.

Contributors to this book include Susie Middlemiss and Steven Warner (Slaughter and May), Bruce Proctor (Diageo), Mark Bezant (LECG) and Dawn Franklin (BrandRight). Writing on the European Court of Justice decision on when and how the makers of compatible products can use the trade mark GILLETTE is Rainer Hilli (Roschier Holmberg), who acted in that case. There are plenty more attractions, including industry focuses on the financial services sector and the repackaging of pharma products.

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.
