... you will be enthralled by next Tuesday's brace of European Court of Justice Opinions. Three of them (Cases C-46/02, C-338/02 and C-444/02) relate to the efforts made by Fixtures Marketing to establish its entitlement to enforce database rights in UK and Scottish football Premiership fixture lists against businesses that extract data relating to football fixtures and use them for betting purposes. The fourth, Case C-203/02 British Horseracing Board v William Hill, relates to the control of the right to exploit commercially a vast and complex database of horses, riders and racing fixtures which the BHB maintains and operates at great expense.

The IPKat hopes to bring you news and comment on the Advocate Generals' Opinions in these cases as soon as it is available, so watch this space.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

I find your thoughts very interesting. Perhaps your readers might find email marketing consultant interesting.

This is an interesting case and surely this is part of the public domain and rights are considered to be public information? A more interesting case would be that of football predictions and Premiership Football Betting Tips. All of which are subjective, but do contain arguably intellectual thinking. Interesting thoughts...
