NEW-STYLE MIP


The 88-page February issue of Euromoney's Managing Intellectual Property has a fresh feel about it, since the title has just been given something of a makeover. The paper's got a different feel to it and there are more words per page: this makes the new MIP better value for money (that's $790 a year, or 611 euro, or £421). Features include the following:

* "The claim game", a good critique of differences in patent claim construction that takes in the US (via Japan), Germany and the UK;

* "Alicante Answers" - Fabrizio Miazzetto argues that the choice of Alicante for the seat of Spain's Community design and Community trade mark courts will result in those courts becoming an important international forum;

The real reason why Alicante is likely to be a popular forum for international litigation ...

* A note by Jonathan Moskin on the recent US Supreme Court decision in KP Permanent Make-Up v Lasting Impression.

There's also another popularity survey, this time of patent practices in some 60 or so countries or zones, lavishly garlanded with profitable advertisements from firms that have received the most votes.

Of course the Alicante beaches and temperatures are an important factor to take into account when forum shopping in CTM and CD litigation....I forgot to mention in the article!
