As usual, the IPKat begs to remind you of the 'Forthcoming Events' feature, which you will find in the left-hand side-bar of this weblog's front page. It contains some fresh entries which you may not yet have seen. Don't forget to check them out.

Personal note: IPKat team member Jeremy owes a lot of people a lot of letters, both regarding the planned courses on How to Write Good IP and on research assistance for a forthcoming project. He's been so overwhelmed that he hasn't been able to write to everyone before going off for his summer holiday. It's only a week -- and he promises to get back to everyone when time permits, later this month. Oh -- before he goes, he can tell you that he has 'pre-posted' a small number of items that will appear on this weblog during his absence.

The IPKat has been nominated for one of the Computer Weekly Blog Awards for 2008 -- in the IT Law and Governance category. Voting continues throughout the month of July. If you think he's a deserving character and would like to vote for him -- or indeed if you'd like to vote for any of the other nominated blogs -- click here for a link to the Computer Weekly Blog Award site.

Last month the IPKat reported that Elizabeth Obisinya failed in her copyright infringement claim against writer and film-maker Sean Ellis, whose Cashback she believed he had copied from her own screen play of the same name. Faced with an order to pay £10,000 costs and to stop claiming that Ellis infringed her work, she now plans to appeal.

Stephen McClelland has emailed the IPKat to say that he has prepared a SlideShare presentation, 'Creative Content Online in the European Single Market'. He explains, "I am a publisher and support the International Institute of Communications, a non-profit membership organization that has just run a conference that featured this presentation. I think it is of considerable interest to anyone interested in E Commission copyright plans... " The slides illustrate a talk by Simona Martorelli, from the Information Society and Media Directorate General. Thanks, Stephen.

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.
