The IPKat congratulates publishers Sweet & Maxwell on getting issue 1 of the new WIPO Journal out on time (you can get all the necessary details here). His excitement is of course nothing to do with the fact that one of IPKat team member Jeremy's little pieces of pungent prose slipped gracefully past the peer reviewer and glided into the new title. Normally the IPKat would not have mentioned his contribution, but for the sake of completeness and in the interest of truth he felt he should mention that it was a fun thing to write.
