Around the IPKat’s Cousins Blogs

This InternKat brings you some highlights of the IPKat’s cousins blogs!

Ben Challis reports on The 1709 Blog on a number of items, including the expected sentencing next month by the Liverpool Crown Court in the Wayne Evans case; publication by The Music Managers Forum of the ‘Dissecting the Digital Part 2’ report; the request for Comments by the US Copyright about researching and repairing software-enabled devices; and the victory by Kanye West, Jay Z and Frank Ocean in a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by songwriter Joel McDonald.

with copyright, Patricia Covarrubia blogged in IPTango about measures taken by the Peruvian National Institute for the Defence of Competition and Intellectual Property Protection (INDECOPI) for enhancing authors rights. Moving to trademarks, the blog also covered the INTA announcement about the opening in 2017 of the Latin America representative office in Santiago (Chile).

Over at MARQUES Class 46, the blog discusses the judgment in the Gucci v. Guess saga, where the General Court upheld the findings of the Board of Appeals. More about trademarks on SOLO IP, where Barbara Cookson described the tough life of the Solicitor mark in York.

Moving to the economic field, the IP Finance blog has recently brought a summary by former GuestKat Mike Mireles (Hat Tip to Professor Paul Caron's Tax Prof Blog) about the California Legislative Analyst Office report on how much subsidies have really affected movie activity in California, and IPKat Neil Wilkof's ruminations on the challenges of building fashion brands online, focusing on the European company Zalando.

On IP enforcement issues, Amanda Lotheringen blogged on Afro-IP about the launch of the “South African Training Manual on Investigation and Prosecuting IP Crime for Senior Law Enforcement”. South Africa is the first Member State that has adopted a customised version of the WIPO manual on this topic. Finally, on The SPC Blog, Rob Stephen discussed the UKIPO decision regarding the Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC) sought for the nab paclitaxel.

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.
