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

Temperatures are rising, and rumour has it that the best way to cool off a bit is by catching up with the latests articles from the IPKat from the past few weeks.

GuestKat Jan Jacobi took the fast lane and commented on the recent Dutch Supreme Court decision involving a famous Formula One racer and a potential infringement of his image rights through use of a look-a-like. The Supreme Court decided that a look-a-like could constitute an image, if the imitated person would be sufficiently recognizable.

The first part of GuestKat's Becky Knott series about trade marks in the metaverse is available now and covers issues from squatters to new applications specific for the metaverse.

SpecialKat Hayleigh Bosher informed that the UKIPO published its Research Priorities for 2022-23.

Katfriends Desmond Oriakhogba and Dick Kawooya provided a highlight of the key portions of the Work Program on Copyright Limitations and Exceptions.

Katfriend Henry Yang reviewed the book "Licensing Standard Essential Patents: FRAND and the Internet of Things" by Igor Nikolic.

The UKIPO may be a great player on a team, but it cannot be the captain, as it cannot raise ex officio bad faith objections. That was the conclusion in the article written by Katfriend Sarah Neil, in which she brought a cautionary tale when the Registry gets over its trade mark skis on the issue of bad faith.

Thinking outside of the (plant box), Katfriend Hanne Kirk reported on a recent decision from the Danish Eastern High Court in a dispute involving copyright protection of a plant box.

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.
