One very fatigued IPKat is edging towards the end of a long, hard INTA programme here in San Diego. So many points to consider:
* What the current Dilution Bill in the US will actually achieve;The IPKat is sure that these questions won't go away and looks forward to giving them some heavy thought in the near future.
* Who is supporting the Bill, and why?
* The wisdom of the ECJ leaving so much to national courts in its recent Gillette decision (on the use of the word mark GILLETTE by another manufacturer to indicate that its blades fitted Gillette blade holders). In particular, what happens if the way this is done is regarded as honest commercial use in some EU States but not others.
