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

Missed out on the IPKat a couple of weeks ago? No problem at all, the 167th edition of Never Too Late is here!

Is the German press publishers' right lawful? More details on the CJEU reference. Kat Eleonora freshens up our memory of the case brought up by the the Landgericht Berlin as the questions referred to the CJEU became available on the Curia website.

Guest Kat Rosie drives us through a design infringement and jurisdictional dispute between Nintendo and BigBen, maker of remote controls and accessories compatible with Nintendo devices. The full story on Community registered designs & the CJEU - Nintendo v Big Ben.

Playing is not infringing, right?
Is that time of the year again when you start wondering how cold it actually is as opposed to how many degrees there are outside. Thanks to Kat Neil we discover more on this topic in In memoriam Maurice Bluestein: "Baby--it's cold outside"; the story and nomenclature of the Wind Chill Index.

Book Review: The Fundamental Right to Data Protection. Kat Nicola explored the world of data protection and counter-terrorism surveillance thanks to the book written by Ms. Maria Tzanou, Bloomsbury Publishing.

In light of the recent EU Commission paper, Dr. Ilanah Simon Fhima in Brexit: The IP Position Paper and trade marks discusses what could be the future for the comparable protection for trade marks and for the rules of exhaustion envisaged in the paper.

Remaining on the subject, Darren Meale, comes back with an update on Brexit (his previous contributions can be found here and here) in Brexit and Brands: 536 days and counting – what is the UK going to do?
