The February issue of Sweet & Maxwell's European Intellectual Property Review has now been published. It contains some good stuff. For example:
* Olivier Lemaire (NautaDutilh's Brussels office) writes on parallel trade in pharma products in the recently enlarged European Union;
* Philippe de Jong (Altius) explains the role and future prospects of the Belgian torpedo as a means of slowing down unwanted patent litigation;
* IPKat co-author Ilanah explains why it's no fun being a Community trade mark examiner, reviewing the OHIM Board of Appeal decision in Whitening Multi-Action;Lambretta tracktops: colourways can't be protected in the UK
* Roland Mallison and Claire Young (Linklaters) wax lyrical on the lacunae in design protection that were so clearly revealed in the recent UK Lambretta case.
