Never Too Late: if you missed the IPKat Last Week!

As the flavescent season starts, temperatures drop and cocoa per capita consumption skyrockets, the 164th edition of Never Too Late will accompany you through the transition!

The Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) and the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property will hold a Joint JIPLP-GRUR event: A Distinctive Mess? Current Trade Mark Law and Practice in the EU and UK on 24 November 2017. Don’t miss out!

Kat Neil provides us with the second installment of his report on the 6th Global Forum on Intellectual Property: Ideas to Assets held in Singapore (part 1 here). The second plenary session discussed “IP and Innovation in an Age of Sustainability” as well as the judge’s forum-- “Do the courts have a role in encouraging technological advances which are in the public interest?”


Kat ready for autumn goodies
Is playing the part of your own life a performance for which you can claim IP rights? In Reality TV stars: performers? ...employees?... Neither? this question was posed to the French Court of Cassation and Guest Kat Mathilde analysed the interesting dispute for us.

Onto wildlife reality shows, we all remember the Monkey Selfie Dispute. There have been developments and it appears that the parties have reached an agreement. The Selfie Monkey case: the end?, Guest Kat Mathilde reports.

Schweppes = Schweppes - AG Opinion in parallel goods dispute. Guest Kat Rosie talks about how parallel importation of Schweppes soft drinks can be tricky, as she explains in summing up AG Mengozzi’s opinion for us!

In The Israel Supreme Court adopts the conceptual separability test of the US Copyright Office, rejecting the Star Athletica standard Kat friend Adar Bengom reports on the decision and the tests for copyrightability used.

To end the week in style, Maradona sues Dolce&Gabbana over 2016 'MARADONA' jersey. The former football star apparently did not take so well that fashion house Dolce&Gabbana used a replica of its Napoli football jersey at a fashion show. It is also safe to say Dolce&Gabbana did not take well the news of the legal claim…
