The May 2008 issue of Trademark World is the one that its publishers will be taking to Berlin for this year's International Trademark Association meeting next week. As ever, it has a bright-and-breezy blend of content which includes ...
* Two articles on border/customs control. The first is by Jasna Jusic and Kujtesa Nezaj, both from the Balkan team of SD Petosevic, on border measures in Montenegro and Kosovo -- two little regions that are little known in terms of law and enforcement but which, on account of their proximity to larger and richer European markets, will become increasingly important to IP owners and enforcement agencies. The second, focusing on the EU, is composed by the Simmons & Simmons team of Peter Meyer, Willem Leppink and Jenny Barker;

* An analysis by the Eversheds pair of Antony Gold and Birgit Schluckebier of the recent England and Wales near-decision on sponsored results in Wilson v Yahoo! (noted here by the IPKat);

* "Panacea or Bitter Pill?", this being a shorter and sweeter version of IPKat blogger Jeremy's address to the Pharmaceutical Trade Marks Group on the slightly strained legal relationship between trade marks and international non-proprietary names in Dublin at the beginning of April.

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.
