Current JIPLAP

The July 2009 issue of Oxford University's flagship monthly IP journal, the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice (JIPLAP), has been sitting on the IPKat's desk for some time, neglected but certainly not unloved. Items in this issue include the following:
* Nigel Parker (Allen & Overy) writes on "Intellectual property and joint ventures: protection of IP on exit", a thoroughly topical subject in recessionary times when exiting a JV may be needed for many different reasons;
* "Microbicide development: an argument for broadening the experimental use exception" by Rebecca Wolf, International Access to Medicines Research Fellow, PIJIP;
* "The shape of the Lego brick is free for all to use" by Patricia Cappuyns (Howrey, Brussels);
* Emir Aly Crowne Mohammed discusses "Parody as fair dealing in Canada", offering a guide for lawyers and judges;
* "Japan's IP High Court fids 3D seashell chocolate bar inherently distinctive", a Current Intelligence note by John Tessensohn and Shusaku Yamamoto.
The Editorial, "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to", a plea to take the Pirate Party's threat to IP seriously, can be read for free here.

  1. I have a silverware set with Lego shaped handles, and yes, they do all lock together. Was wondering about the legitimacy of that; thanks for clearing it up. :)


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.
