Lying in the sun but at the same time curious about events and new possibilities in the IP world? This post is what you are looking for  ...

But before delving too deeply into it … 

Praise of The IPKat

The IPKat is honoured (and flattered!) to report that Arnold J, recently appointed Lord Justice of Appeal, mentions The IPKat in his Editorial on patent harmonization in Europe, saying:
I would add that judicial dialogue and cooperation has been facilitated by the increased availability and discussion of national decisions through [...] blogs such as IPKat


The European IP forum will take place the 7th and 8th November 2019 in Munich, Germany. The conference will cover a range of IP strategies involving trade secrets, designs, copyright and trade marks, as well as patents, all under one roof. For more information click here.

Summertime and the life is easy
Calls for papers

The Remedies in Intellectual Property Law: Do We Need Common European Principles? - Remedies, such as injunctions, damages, or claims for information, are increasingly of relevance in the policy debates in the intellectual property field.
