Never Too Late: if you missed The IPKat last week


This Kat is excited to bring you all the highlights of last week from a rainy South Africa...

A great day to stay 
inside and catch up 
on some IP news...


In Denmark, the general opinion has long been that assignment from the author to a music publisher of "all rights to public performance" does not include so-called 'grand rights' unless explicitly stated. This position may now need to be reconsidered, following a recent decision by the Danish courts. Kat friend Hanne Kirk reported on the case.



Autumn is usually both a very busy time of the year and, as nature shows us, a season of change. So it seems highly appropriate to also use this period to keep busy with some IP events and learn about recent changes and developments. Eleonora Rosati informed us of a series of online events which she is directly involved in and/or have contributed to organize and might be of interest to IPKat readers.


Since its creation in 2018, the Stockholm Intellectual Property Law Review (SIPLR) has held an annual conference, inviting prominent speakers in the IP field to discuss current issues of import. Riana Harvey provided all the details on the event here.


Africa is a continent with 54 countries. These 54 countries come with distinct and diverse legal systems and rules. As a consequence, understanding and following developments on law and practice in Africa can be an uphill task even for a field like IP law that ‘enjoys’ the benefit of various international treaties. Chijioke Okorie provided a book sneak peek into “Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Africa” by  Marius Schneider and Vanessa Ferguson.

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.
