Latest Patent World

The final Patent World for 2007 is also the first for 2008, being the December/January issue of this near-monthly from serial IP publishers Informa. The cover story, "Farewell patent patchwork--hello Compat?", is a summary of recent shifts in the tectonic plates on which patent litigation in Europe is based. The author is IPKat team blogger Jeremy, who founded Patent World and was its first editor 20 years ago. Other features include
* an explanation by Otto Swens and Hidde Koenraad (Vondst Advocaten) on the centralised post-grant amendment of European patents provided for in EPC2000 (the souped-up version of the European Patent Convention);

* "The door is left open", by Simmons & Simmons duo Rowan Freeland and Angus McLean, this being an analysis of the Court of Appeal for England and Wales decision in Les Laboratoires Servier v Apotex on the continuation of interim injunctions pending appeal in patent infringement disputes involving generic drug patents.

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.
