Lords, Ladies ...

Breaking news comes to this weblog in the form of the revelation by Managing Intellectual Property magazine's website that Baroness (originally Sally) Morgan is to become the next British Minister for Intellectual Property, in succession to Lord Triesman.

At the time of writing, it is not known whether she likes Kats.

Alternatively, and contrary to what MIP's website says (but according to one commenter below), the next IP minister is actually Baroness Morgan of Drefelin (left).

The IPKat is now confused...

  1. Reading the wikipedia entry, she seems well qualified for the job. Perhaps she could also fit in the position of Work and Pensions secretary.

  2. Wrong Baroness Morgan I'm afraid. The Minister for IP is Baroness Morgan of Drefelin

  3. Looks like it was MIP's mistake. The post above will be / has been corrected accordingly.

  4. This link seems to make it clear which Morgan we are talking about:



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.
