Matthew Courtney

The IPKat records with great sadness the news of the death last weekend of Matthew Courtney, a young intellectual property lawyer in law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer's London office.

Intellectual property practitioners, their clients and their service providers are more than just a collection of individuals and businesses focused on their own advantage: they are a community. We are all diminished by the death or the suffering of any one of us.

The IPKat joins the rest of the IP community in expressing his most sincere condolences to Matthew's family, his friends and his colleagues. May they be spared further sorrow.

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.
