Never Too Late: if you missed The IPKat last week


Let’s have a look at what the Kats were up to last week…

Holding onto the
last bits of Sunday...



The Enlarged Board of Appeal (EBA) referral from T1807/15 concerns the legality of oral proceedings conducted via Video Conferencing (ViCo) without the consent of all parties. There was some doubt as to whether the referral would actually go ahead, given that the party requesting the referral had already withdrawn their request. The Board of Appeal interlocutory decision in T1807/15 reveals that the Board of Appeal has determined to continue with the referral. Rose Hughes reported on the referral here.



Hayleigh Bosher is delighted to bring you a book review of Global Mandatory Fair, the Nature and Scope of the Right to Quote Copyright Works by Tanya Aplin, King's College London and Lionel Bently, University of Cambridge.



Readers may be aware that, together with Giulia Gasparin, Eleonora Rosati is currently involved in Fashion Law London, an initiative that was born in 2019 to create opportunities of study and discussion, mostly from an IP and IT law perspective, for all those interested in this emerging field of practice and research. As part of this, on Tuesday, 13 April 2021, Fashion Law London will hold an online live event, titled 'The New Age of Fashion: Sustainanle Horizons', to discuss everything sustainability in fashion. Eleonora Rosati provided all the details of the event here.


Eleonora Rosati has developed IP and study aid materials primarily aimed at her students. Among them, there was a table summarising the treatment of linking after the seminal CJEU decision in GS Media. Eleonora Rosati has now updated that table so to include the findings in VG Bild-Kunst.

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.
