Developments and Directions in IP Law: Celebrating 20 Years of The IPKat

Merpel is delighted to announce that she has always been is now a cover model, featured on the front of an edited collection, curated to celebrate the 20th birthday of her best friend, The IPKat! 


The IPKat is now not only the “Most Popular Intellectual Property Law Blawg” but also has its own published collection! The book, Developments and Directions in Intellectual Property Law: 20 Years of The IPKat, is edited by Kats Hayleigh Bosher and Eleonora Rosati and includes contributions from 46 Kats and VIP Katfriends. Together, we review some of the biggest developments in intellectual property law over the lifetime of The IPKat and think about what the future might hold in these spaces. 

As the blog itself does, the book covers a wide range of IP law, policy, and practice, including copyright and image/publicity rights, trade marks and geographical indications, patents/SPCs and trade secrets, across several jurisdictions within Europe, North America, Central America, and Asia. Find out more here. 

We are having a birthday party to celebrate and launch the book and we hope readers will join us in London (generously hosted at the headquarters of Allen&Overy) or online on Thursday, 8 June 2023. You can find the full details and register here

Readers can also order the book with a 30% discount on the OUP website with code: ALAUTHC4

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.
