All change!

The IPKat's friend Chris Rycroft, the publisher at Oxford University Press who was responsible for launching the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice and for building up OUP's now-formidable list of intellectual property and competition law books, has left OUP for a new and exciting challenge. He has just moved into private legal practice with London solicitors Lewis Silkin, with whom he will be working in the field of practice development.

Right: of the 1oo or so hits secured by a Google Image search for "Chris Rycroft", this was the one the Kats liked best.

Meanwhile, the IPKat has learned that the hot-seat formerly occupied by Chris Rycroft at OUP will be filled by Luke Adams. No stranger to intellectual property law, Luke has been building up a long and lively list of IP titles for Edward Elgar Publishing. This company has worked hard to elevate the status of multi-authored collections of essays on contemporary IP law, of which the New Directions in Copyright series is an outstanding example.

Left: the "Luke Adams" Google Image search notched up over 2,000 hits -- of which this was the best likeness.

Both the IPKat and Merpel wish Chris and Luke good luck in their respective new ventures.

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.
