Monday miscellany

Going cheap, going soon!  The IPKat's friends at Oxford University Press, publishers of his beloved Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice, are having a summer sale.  This includes, but is not limited to, law books -- some of which concern intellectual property, and some of which are written by people of the highest repute. You can check out the law books on offer by clicking here. This offer ends on Friday 18 July 2014.

Around the weblogs. "Priority and indirect infringement of second medical use claims: when the Sun shines in the Netherlands" is the title of a gripping post by Jaap Bremer on a recent bit of not-to-be missed Dutch litigation between Novartis and Sun. Also not to be missed is a challenge, on Class 99, to the current view that Community design registration is best done with line drawings: it ain't necessarily so, says Bird & Bird's CAD enthusiast Ewan Grist. Class 46 reminds MARQUES members to get a move on if they want to get the benefit of this year's annual meeting in Copenhagen: the Early Bird offer expires this Friday, 27 June.  Finally, SOLO IP speculates on the prospect of computerising the Lord Chief Justice.

Snowden data protection case goes to CJEU. "High Court refers Facebook privacy case to Europe" is the title of an Irish Times news item drawn to our attention by Paul Lambert (katpat!) The reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union for a ruling follows litigation in which privacy campaigner Max Schrems maintained that the Irish Data Protection Commissioner was wrong to refuse to investigate whistleblower Edward Snowden’s claims that Dublin-based Facebook International had passed on its EU users’ data to the US National Security Agency as part of its Prism surveillance programme. Max Schrems, the man behind a data privacy campaign ‘Europe v Facebook’, claimed that the Commissioner wrongly interpreted and applied the law governing the transfer of personal data from Europe to the US when he rejected Mr Schrems’ complaint. This Kat suspects that he has not heard the last of this action ...

This Kat has been in transit, hence the fairly short Monday Miscellany. Good news is that there should be plenty more on Wednesday ...

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.
