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

Two weeks into the new year and our Kats have already discussed a number of different topics.

Neil Wilkof took us back to the medieval ages, and looked at the work of Moses Maimonides’ “The Guide of the Perplexed”. Neil discussed how this medieval philosopher was concerned lest third-parties misused his famous treatise, and ruminated on whether Maimonides was exercising a medieval form of moral rights.

Eleonora Rosati reported on a seminal Italian Supreme Court decision setting out the requirements and limits of parody under both copyright and trade mark law–concerning no less than a bottled water ad featuring the character Zorro!

Marcus Pemsel took us through a recent German Supreme Court decision setting out the standards one must meet to obtain a blocking order against websites that host infringing content, arguing thaperhaps, these requirements are set too high.

IPKat book of the year awards - voting extended!

Hayleigh Bosher reminded us that we have until FRIDAY this week to vote for the IPKat Book of the Year Awards!

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.
