Never Too Late: If you missed The IPKat last week!

Repetita iuvant. So maybe it's better to take a look at The IPKat's latest posts from the past week!


The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) has published the Guidelines for the Examination and Trial, which came into effect on January 1, 2022, and our GuestKat Tian Lu has provided a detailed overview of the substantive structure and major addiction.


A recent case before the Amsterdam District Court addressed the question of whether the unauthorized publication of manuscripts of the Diary of Anne Frank constituted copyright infringement. Our GuestKat Jan Jacobi presented the background, the outcome and a commentary on the case.

Have you ever heard of the word "bowdlerization"? And why this word might be relevant from a copyright perspective? PermaKat Neil Wilkof provides the answer with a link to the book publishing project "The Family Shakespeare" by Thomas and Henrietta Maria Bowdler.


There have been two referrals (consolidated) to the Enlarged Board of Appeal (EBA) on the question of the EPO's joint application approach to priority for PCT(EP) applications (G 1/22 and G 2/22). Our GuestKat Rose Hughes reviewed the legal background, facts, and commentary on the EBA's decision.

GuestKat Rose Hughes also reviewed recent changes of EPO's Guidelines for examination on description amendments, which will come into force on March 1, 2022.


The yearly conference of ATRIP will be held June 22-24 online! GuestKat Frantzeska Papadopoulou provides more information here!

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.
