 the latest case law on the liability of online marketplaces for trademark infringement by third party retailers. The District Court of the Hague recently found that Fruugo, an online marketplace, was not directly liable under trade mark law for the advertisement and sale, on its platform, of products which infringed the trade marks of Audi and Volswagen, distinguishing the facts from 
Louboutin v Amazon.

Katfriend Jakub Wyczik provided a contribution about the recent decisions which held there was no copyright protection for artificial intelligence creations. He closes with the provocation that he hopes for the death of copyright and suggests that other areas of law may be more suitable to protect AI creations. 

Professor Kasim Waziri (University of Abuja, Nigeria) provided a book review of Intellectual Property Law in Nigeria: Emerging Trends, Theories and Practice by Desmond Oriakhogba and Ifeoluwa Olubiyi. The book covers the substance and policy of intellectual property, as well as emerging issues, including the protection of traditional knowledge, artificial intelligence, and the gendered nature of IP protection, "with deliberate simplicity and yet deep in scope and analytical preponderance".

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.
