Never Too Late: if you missed the IPKat last week

This Kat is all caught up
This Kat is looking forward to a long weekend, but not before taking a look back at what went on last week on the IPKat.


SpecialKat Hayleigh Bosher reported on the latest developments in copyright infringement proceedings between UK collecting society PRS and Qatar Airways.

Kat friend Dr Paula Westenberger reviewed the "excellent and extremely welcome" Research Handbook on Contemporary Intangible Cultural Heritage: Law and Heritage.

A date for the diary: PermaKat Eleonora Rosati announced a Joint IPKat-BLACA-IFIM live webinar on the forthcoming CJEU YouTube/Cyando judgment, expected 22 June 2021, to be held on 1 July.

Hayleigh Bosher also considered the quantification of damages on the basis of notional licence for Eminem's album, which had been pressed as an unauthorised vinyl in the UK.


Keeping with the damages theme, Kat friends Professors Bashayer Almajed and Bashar Malkawi, presented a summary of the current multilayered approach to damage calculations for patent infringement under Chinese law.

Would a TRIPS waiver for coronavirus vaccines help boost production capacity in poor countries? Katfriend Professor Suma Athreye discussed possible measures to promote vaccine equity.

GuestKat Rose Hughes reported on the EPO Board of Appeal's recent decision to uphold the principle of "any person" opposition, continuing to allow so-called "straw man" oppositions in light of the weighty public interest in invalid patents being challenged.


AmeriKat Annsley Merelle Ward conveyed an event report from Adam Ernette on the virtual IP Master Class seminar held by UIC Law Center for Intellectual Property, Information, and Privacy Law on 16 April 2021, who also provided a list of upcoming UIC events.

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.
