Never Too Late: if you missed the IPKat last week

This Kat is looking out for new IP stories
On the last day of February, it's time to look back at last week in the IPKat.


PermaKat Eleonora Rosati addressed five considerations for the transposition and application of Article 17 of the DSM Directive, as the often polarised debate continues ahead of the 7 June 2021 national transposition deadline.

Katfriend Federica Pezza (Hogan Lovells) published a guest post on the ongoing street art debate concerning copyright protection and whether artists can object to works' destruction.


GuestKat Rose Hughes commented on a recent EPO Board of Appeal decision considering the legal basis and effect of the EPO's 2020 COVID-19-related deadline extension, with concerns about legal certainty interacting with questions of how best to serve justice during a crisis situation.


PermaKat Neil Wilkof summarised the storied history and uncertain future of textual references, from footnotes to endnotes to even further evolution.

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.
