Back to work, so here's an IP blogroll

Various members of the IPKat blogging team also contribute to other weblogs with intellectual property content, and every few months the IPKat posts a note to draw the attention of recent readers to their existence:

The 1709 Blog caters for the copyright enthusiast. With input from a panel of guest bloggers plus the regular team, its coverage of all aspects of copyright law and practice is rich and varied (

The SPC Blog is a handy information source for anyone who is involved in the tiny but invaluable world of supplementary protection certificates for pharmaceutical and agrichemical patents (

PatLit tackles a wide range of patent dispute resolution topics, not just from the UK but from wherever interesting news and comments emerge (

IP Finance touches that delicate interface between intellectual property and the world of finance, addressing securitisation, valuation, royalty rates, assessment of damages, the death of old business plans and the evolution of new ones (

Fashionista-at-law is not confined to intellectual property law but sheds light on all aspects of one of the world's most conspicuous and eye-catching sectors (

Class 46, founded by friends of MARQUES and driven by a 10-strong team, this blog delivers trade mark and brand-related news and developments from across Europe. Class 46 is now hosted by MARQUES (

Datonomy focuses on the tensions between personal data regulation, the rights of individual data subjects and the needs of commercial and public data users (

Class 99 is dedicated to design law and practice in the UK, in Europe and beyond. It is written by a team of acknowledged experts in the field (

Two regional weblogs also cover IP activity. Afro-IP ( deals with the IP scene in Africa, while IPTango ( does the same for Latin America.

The Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice, published by Oxford University Press and edited by IPKat team member Jeremy, has both an official website and its own blog, jiplp (, which posts some of the journal's content along with related news and features.

The IPKat is of course always interested to hear about other IP weblogs and to spread the word to other readers, via his regular Monday, Wednesday and Friday round-up features. If you know of a newly-launched IP blog, or if an existing blog has just undergone a major change, do please email the IPKat here and let him know.

  1. Wouldn't normally count as an IP blog, but see today's '"Intellectual" Property Lawyer' at Off the Law:
    And a happy new year to you!


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.
