The IPKat says "thank you"; New blog on the block ...

Another milestone, but a very gratifying one, is that yesterday afternoon the IPKat's email subscription list notched up its 1,500th member. The IPKat, Merpel, Tufty and all the crew say "thank you so very much for your continued support and involvement, which we really appreciate".

Right: The IPKat is never one to desert his post ...

Following the recent postings on this weblog, asking readers if they were interested in an African IP blog, it's probably no surprise that there is indeed a new blog on the block. This new blog is Afro-IP, and the idea is to post short, accurate and readable information concerning intellectual law, practice and business in Africa. This is not a political or lobbying blog, since we reckon that readers already have opinions of their own. It does however seek to be educative and informative, since it's better for people -- whatever their opinions -- to know more rather than less about the subjects on which they hold their opinions.

Afro-IP is still very much in its infancy, and it plans to add to its team in order to provide wider coverage. Posts can be in languages other than English too, where appropriate. The team also welcomes comments, which you can email here.

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.
