Never too late: If you missed the IPKat last week!

Here’s your regular recap of the IPKat stories published last week.


GuestKat Kevin Bercimuelle-Chamot analysed the thin line between homage and infringement, comparing two campaign photos published by popular fashion brands. For more details, click here.

Former GuestKat Mirko Brüß summarised a Higher Regional Court’s of Nürnberg ruling in which the key issue was whether an online marketplace could be held liable for damages and injunctive relief, when a third-party vendor uses a copyright-infringing image to advertise their product on that platform. The German court found the online marketplace liable under CJEU YouTube/Cyando standard. More information available 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.
