Congratulations to the new Silks

In England and Wales a competition is held to select the next batch of Queen's Counsel, barristers whose seniority and expertise is recognised and who become entitled to bear the letters "QC" ("KC" when the reigning monarch is a King) after their names. Details of the competition and how it is run can be found on the QC applications website here. For the current competition, covering the years 2009-2010, there were 275 applicants, of which 129 were successful.

The IPKat is always delighted when intellectual property experts and enthusiasts receive this honour and is thus pleased to offer his congratulations to two stars in the British IP firmament, whose success has been reported today:
* Piers Acland (right, of 11 South Square), who has appeared in these recent IP cases;

* the IPKat's friend Michael Edenborough (Serle Court), who has kindly drawn the attention of IPKat team member Jeremy to several significant decisions that were worthy of report in the European Trade Mark Reports.
Having had to read all the names backwards, the IPKat is worried that he might have missed someone out, in which case he's sure he'll hear about it soon enough.

  1. Fantastic news for both of them - well deserved by both!


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.
