Latest JIPLP

The January 2009 issue of Oxford University Press's flagship IP journal, the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice (JIPLP), came out some time ago but IPKat team member Jeremy, who edits it, accidentally let it slip to the bottom of the pile of printed materials on his desk, otherwise he would have mentioned it by now: this year's cover colour is a bright and cheerful green (right). Topics featured in this issue include the following:
* An Australian triumvirate of Chris Dent, Elizabeth Hall and Andrew Christie examine both the rationale and the scope of patent attorney privilege;

* Stuart Helmer and Isabel Davies (CMS Cameron McKenna) reflect on how the European Court of Justice ruling affects the balance between the enforcement of copyright against file-sharers and the protection of personal data concerning individuals who do it;

* Katherine A. Helm (Fordham University) contrasts the enforcement of pharmaceutical patents in the United States, Europe and Japan;

* Joel Smith and Rachel Montagnon (Herbert Smith) consider how useful the new European regime of consumer and business protection regulations might be to the brand owner;

* Susan Hall (Cobbetts) explains the recent US litigation between Scottish author JK Rowling and the author of an unauthorised Harry Potter lexicon.
The editorial for this issue, "Locarno in the limelight", considers the Locarno system for the classification of registered designs -- a normally sleepy subject that has recently come up for some freshening-up proposals.

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.
