New SIs tinker with UK IP law

Thanks go to John Lambert's nipc IP/it update blog for pointing out a few new SIs relating to the outer fringes of UK copyright, design and patent law:

The Copyright and Performances (Application to Other Countries) Order 2007, SI 2007 No. 273 extends protection for UK copyright to Samoa, the SI replacing the previous Order of SI 2006 No. 316. John has further comments regarding this on his blog.

The Patents (Convention Countries) Order 2007, SI 2007 No. 276, updates the list of countries to which Section 90 of the Patents Act applies.

Similarly, the Designs (Convention Countries) Order 2007, SI 2007 No. 277, updates the equivalent country list under Section 13 of the Registered Designs Act.

We can all now breathe a sigh of relief that it will be possible in future to claim priority from Yemeni patent and design applications.

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.
