Newsy bits

The IPKat can now confirm that this coming Tuesday's meeting for people who want to know more about Intellectual Property Wikis will be hosted at the London offices of Olswang (click here for directions). Those people who have indicated their intention to attend should have received email notices to that effect. If you'd like to come - and even try your hand at amending a wiki yourself - just email IPKat team blogger Jeremy here and let him know.

Intellectual property activist Ben Goodger (Rouse & Co. International) has excitedly told the IPKat all about the speech he made at the Plenary Session of The United Nations Commission On International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) on Monday in Vienna on behalf of MARQUES (The Association of European Brands Owners).

At this session, the lobbying efforts in respect of the draft Legislative Guide On Secured Transactions which Ben and others in the IP community have been toiling over for more than two years finally bore fruit: significant amendments to help IP owners were finally agreed by Member States. For previous reading on this issue see earlier IPKat posts here, here and here.

It must be the season for spring-cleaning websites. This time it's the turn of Human Law's Justin Patten. His freshened-up site reflects his interest both in intellectual property law and in mediation, and the site carries quite a few items on copyright too.

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.
