The IPKat team news: new arrivals and farewells

The IPKat is getting his teeth into the new season
Fall is a season of new school supplies, a new court term and new challenges ahead.  The IPKat is also embracing new chapters this season with some exciting announcements.


The IPKat team welcomes our new batch of GuestKats who, over the next six months, will be contributing insightful and witty pieces laced with strategic commentary in all areas of IP law and practice.

This term's GuestKats are Rosie Burbidge and Eibhlin Vardy.

Rosie Burbidge (GuestKat)

Rosie Burbidge is an English qualified IP lawyer at Fox Williams LLP.
She cut her litigation teeth on patent litigation and has now graduated to design, trade mark and copyright issues with a sprinkling of breach of confidence. She has several years blogging experience under her belt from Art & Artifice which she founded back in 2010.  More details on Roise here and on Twitter here.    

Eibhlin Vardy (GuestKat)
Eibhlin Vardy is a senior associate in the IP team at Stephenson Harwood in London. She advises on disputes involving all IP rights, and has a particular interest in hard fought patent and trade secrets litigation.  Eibhlin is no stranger to the Kat, having already provided numerous guest posts originating from her reports from AIPPI in Toronto on second medical use (see here) and, more recently, on clinical trial data (see here).  Eibhlin originally hails from Holywood in Northern Ireland, but moved to (warmer and drier) Cambridge to study law, before training at a magic circle firm. Eibhlin's street in South East London has recently seen an influx of new kittens, and Eibhlin can now be found stalking them paparazzi style to obtain photos for this blog. Fun Fact: As a child, Eibhlin featured in the music video for Van Morrison's 1989 hit "Have I told you lately that I love you" – bizarrely Eibhlin didn't discover this until she bumped into the director some 23 years later. You can read more about Eibhlin here.

Special thanks

The IPKat wishes to thank its former GuestKats, Emma Perot and Mike Mireles, and InternKats, Ellie Wilson and Nick Smallwood (who will be replaced by a new pack - details soon), for their wonderful contributions spanning all areas of IP and all corners of the globe and who have helped keep the blog ticking along.  We are sure this will not be the last you hear from them on the IPKat.

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.
