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

Seasons and temperatures may change, but you can always count on Never Too Late! The 168th edition is here for you!

We started with a Book review--Create, Copy, Disrupt: India’s Intellectual Property Dilemmas. Kat Neil tells us with excitement about this comprehensive book, which not only deals with current issues in the Indian IP scene but also gives it a broader social, political and economic context. Spice up your bookshelves with this volume!

Kat Eleonora continues her quest to discover more about the freedom of panorama exception (for some previous episodes, see here, here and here). This time the question is Freedom of Panorama: would it hurt architects? Survey among Italian-based architects says NO. Find out why!

On October 1st, the UK's Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Act 2017 came into force. In The new unjustified threats bill – do's and dont’s, former InternKat Ellie Wilson gives her point of view on how to best approach the new provisions.

Don't miss out! International Copyright Law returns to London on November 27 and 28.

If you'd like to catch up on the last year of trade mark litigation or to just have a neat summary, check out Darren Meale's Retromark Volume II: the last six months in trade marks (and Volume I as well).

The IPKat has been a very keen reader this week! In Book Review Times Two: GI at the Crossroads of Trade, Development, and Culture and GI - Global and Local perspectives Kat Nicola and Kat Friend Josie Bright each reports on one of them for us. Plenty to learn!

For an interesting Sunday discussion, Kat Neil, in light of recent years' political events, asks the question: Does the retreat from internationalism mean the retreat of IP? If yes, what would the impact on IP be?


Kat-ngaroo
Sunday was also a time for event reports! The first, Event report: I3PM General Assembly 2017 at WIPO in Geneva, was provided by Gordan Hyland, the very president of I3PM. Then, our own AmeriKat crossed lands and seas to have her paws, ears, ideas and voice at the AIPPI Congress 2017 in Sydney! This week, the AmeriKat wrote an introductory report, followed by the report on a panel session on copyright and music, by the plenary session on inventor remuneration and by the Young AIPPI Forum. Stay tuned for more!
