"Passing off or customer confusion?" asks the IPKat's friend Lucy Wimberley (SABIP), who had the good fortune to be detained in Turkey by the recent volcanic ash incident for long enough to grab this photo opportunity. Many thank, Lucy!
Recent publications. Issue 2 of the 2010 volume of the bimonthly WIPO Magazine has now been published. You can read it in full here. The Kat's pick of the articles is "Better drawings make a better patent" by Bernadette Marshall. This piece addresses a number of topics that the Kat never thought about before, since he has always taken the graphics for granted. Also just out is the final issue of Copyright World, which from next month is being folded, together with Trademark World and Patent World, into a new Intellectual Property Magazine by its publishers, Informa Law. Details of the final issue's contents can be found here. As its founder editor, IPKat team member is sad to see it go.
From his trusty Welsh correspondent Nia Robert the IPKat learns of Wales’ success last week at the International Exhibition of New Products and Inventions in Geneva. A total of 14 Welsh innovators attended the exhibition, supported by the Welsh Assembly Government. Commendably the Welsh innovators won 6 Gold Medals, 5 Silver and 3 Bronze, this being the Principality's best performance ever. One product (the Sportfit sports injury rehab assistant) won the prestigious WIPO Gold Medal for best Inventor – the first time any British inventor has won this prize at Geneva.
