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

This kitten is delighted to bring you the last edition in 2016 of Never Too Late, number 128!

Ready to celebrate New Year's Eve
InternKat Tian Lu recaps forthcoming events, Geneva Internet Dispute Resolution Policies 1.0 project and the UK IPO call for IP valuation experts.

Guest Kat Rosie Burbidge analyzes the case Property Renaissance Ltd (t/a Titanic Spa) v Stanley Dock Hotel Ltd (t/a Titanic Hotel Liverpool) & Ors, [2016] EWHC 3103 (Ch). It involves trademark cancellation action for non-use, trademarks infringements and passing off.

Book Review: two new methodology books for EQE candidates: Smart in C and Tactics for D
InternKat Tian Lu reviews “Smart in C” and “Tactics for D”, both written by Nyske Blokhuis and Cees Mulder. The books are the perfect choice for those who are preparing for the European Qualifying Examination (EQE).

InternKat Hayleigh Bosher summarizes the highlights of some IP blogs, including the refusal for trademark registration of the iWatch screenshot.

Neil Wilkof ruminates about the interrogation held on 18 July 1573 by the Inquisition court to the famous Venetian Renaissance painter Veronese regarding the work first known as “The Last Supper” and later as “The Feast in the House of Levi”. A very interesting post regarding institutionalized censorship of printed works!

Guest Kat Eibhlin Vardy recaps the case Teva UK Ltd v Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co KG, [2016] EWCA Civ 1296. The case addresses whether the “permission to appeal may be granted more readily in patent cases”.

Andrew Sharples discusses the impact on European Patent Office practice regarding the European Commission Notice concerning the Directive 98/44/EC, in which was found that products (plants, animals and their parts) obtained by essentially biological processes are not patentable.

This kitten outlines the latest news of the proposal of the Digital Single Market and Unified Patent Court Agreement as well as some forthcoming events.

Guest Kat Rosie Burbidge discusses the case NVidia Corporation & Ors v Hardware Labs Performance Systems Inc, [2016] EWHC 3135 (Ch). The case deals with whether an English letter sent by a German company to a US company based on EU trademark infringement constitutes a groundless threat under the Trade Marks Act 1994.
