Never Too Late: if you missed the IPKat last week

This Kat is extending the paw of regional
and global cooperation
Last week was a busy one for the world at large, though perhaps not so much for the IPKat. Nevertheless, here's what happened.

Trade Marks

Halloween may be over for another year, but the search for so-called zombie trade marks continues. In a guest post, Katfriend Carlo Sala gave an overview of issues arising when businesses seek to capitalise on residual consumer recognition of marks associated with the ghosts of brands past.


The IPKat was honoured to be able to interview Rena Lee, the new Chief Executive of the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS). Find out more about the priorities and approach of IPOS, including how it can best adapt to emerging challenges such as globalisation in the age of COVID-19, here.

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.
