Never Too Late: If you missed the IPKat last week!


Did you chase your tail last week and miss the IPKat? Cheer up and read the 119th edition of Never Too Late.

Whaaat, is it Wednesday already?

A round-up post of some highlights from IPKat’s cousin blogs.

Neil Wilkof reflections about how to understand the possible threat to IP with globalization and free trade under attack.

Eleonora Rosati discusses the compatibility with EU law of the new French law on freedom of creation, architecture and cultural heritage.

Eleonora also analyzes the Digital Economy Bill 2016 (still at Committee stage), which contains criminal liability, potentially a 10-year prison sentence for unauthorised communication to the public ("does it apply even for a trivial infringement?).

A round-up post of week’s news and forthcoming events.

GuestKat Rosie Burbidge recaps the annual IBIL and MARQUES event, which enabled attendees to learn first-hand about daily life at the courts.

David Brophy discusses this case, which dealt with jurisdiction over a UK/ EU trademark infringement and passing-off dispute, when the damages incurred and the acts of infringement took place in two different countries.

Darren Smyth covers the scheme launched by the Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) that is designed to provide free legal representation to small business and individuals on IP litigation issues.

GuestKat Eibhlin Vardy discusses this case in which the Ninth Chamber of the General Court of the European Union dismissed the action for annulment of the Commission decision that ‘pay-for-delay’ agreements between Lundbeck and generic companies breach EU competition rules.
