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

Wake me up when it's spring!
Too busy powering through the January blues to keep up with IPKat? No problem! It’s February, you made it and here is the 133rd edition of Never Too Late.

Veronica reports on 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.

Neil considers the implications of well-known quotes that transcended their specific context and become part of a broader verbal heritage. However the quotes are often not identical to what was originally said in due to the process of transmission and public adoption.

The trademark licensing question that won't go away: the standing of a licensee to sue
Kat friend Taapsi Johri of K&S Partners, Gurgaon, India, shared this report of an Indian court decision  that found that jurisdiction of a court in a suit for infringement cannot be claimed based on the place of business of a “permitted user” of the trademark in question.

Guest post from Steven Baldwin (Allen & Overy), summarizing 2017's recent patent decisions. 

An overview of the UK Group of AIPPI annual session of reviewing the year's patent cases. Andrew Lykiardopoulos QC summarised a year’s worth of patent cases in a 90 minute presentation. 

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in OTK v SFP, C-367/15 answered no to the question of whether the Enforcement Directive (Directive 2004/28) prevent Member States from providing in their legislations the possibility to award punitive damages in IP cases? 

The UK Supreme Court ruled by an 8 : 3 majority that the Government cannot initiate the process for the UK leaving the EU (the notification under Article 50 of the TEU) by itself using the Royal Prerogative, but instead an Act of Parliament is needed. 

Neil reviews Copyright in Jewish Law by Rabbi Nachum Menashe Weisfish’s (Feldheim, Jerusalem and New York, 2010)

Following a referral from the Czech Supreme Court in New Wave CZ v Alltoys (Case C-427/15) the CJEU explained that you do not need to start IP infringement proceedings in order to get information about an infringer under Article 8(1) IP Enforcement Directive.

Tian looks at the most recent decision by the Supreme People’s Court of China (SPC) on the “Michael Jordan” case from the perspective of linguistics.
