Danish graduate law student seeks assistance. A charming young researcher is currently writing her thesis on the geographical scope of an infringement of a Community trade mark. She goes on:
"In this connection, I have to interpret Article 102 of the Community Trade Mark Regulation. I also have to analyze the recent ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union in Case C-235/09 Chronopost v DHL [noted by the IPKat here].
Can anyone be of assistance with an English translation of the pleadings from the French Government, the German Government, the Netherlands Government, the United Kingdom Government and the European Commission?
I am also searching for an English translation the ruling of the French Supreme Court on the above mentioned case, but I cannot seem to find it. Can anyone be of assistance with such a translation?"Alas, the IPKat has no resources of his own which he can offer her -- but he wonders whether any of his readers can help. Please post any useful information below or send your contact details to the IPKat and he'll pass them on.
"As I work full time and as my work isn't exclusively IP-related (although IP is a very important part of the work I do) I'd ideally like to do a course in IP either by correspondence or intensively for a week. An MA or LLM would be too much; I'm really looking to gain a better general grounding in the commercial use of IP -- ideally in relation to the use/exploitation of IP in the technology and media sectors.No obvious course springs to this Kat's mind, but that doesn't mean that such a course doesn't exist. Can any readers help? And if there isn't such a course, might anyone like to organise one?
Would you be able to recommend a course which might be suited to my needs? Alternatively, would you be able to recommend an institution for me to contact to see what they offer?"

Afro-IP weblog takes him to country number 22, Ghana. The jiplp weblog features a helpful analysis of the America Invents Act by leading scholar and JILP editorial board member Toshiko Takenaka. The SPC Blog, which focuses on supplementary protection certificates and patent term extensions, has not one but two further updates on the Valsartan-related litigation that has spread across Europe: one is from Italy, the other from Germany. Finally, the IPKat welcomes a new blog on the block: The Yellow Sheet. This is the work of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys' CIPA Informals Committee and will eventually supersede The Yellow Sheet, the pdf format newsletter of the same group.
explained on Wikipedia. The IPKat assumed this game to be a slimmed-down version of a game which was certainly extant in the 1960s, "Truth, Dare, Kiss or Promise" -- which is now the title of a series of books for teenagers. Meanwhile, "Truth or Dave" remains free to register ...
