Romanticat
Too busy sorting through all your Valentine's mail last week to keep up with IPKat?! No problem, here's what you missed in the 136th edition of Never Too Late. 

Katfriend Gill Grassie (Brodies LLP) discusses the matter of Tartan Army Ltd v Sett GmbH and Others [2017] CSOH 22. This was a trade mark/passing off case relating to UK and EU registered marks ‘Tartan Army’ decided by the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

Neil reviews John Murphy’s book Brandfather: The Man Who Invented Branding. In his book Murphy describes his career from a job in corporate planning to the creation of a brand naming, such as PROZAC and ZENECA, and trademark prosecution company to the establishment of Interbrand and, in particular, the development of the field of brand valuation.

Intern Kat Verónica Rodríguez Arguijo continues her report from the 11th edition of the Pan-European Intellectual Property Summit which took place on 1st and 2nd December at the World Customs Organization in Brussels.

Recent call for papers, upcoming events and latest updates including the publication of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce 5th annual International IP Index.
