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

Been away and want to catch up with last week's IP news? No problem! As always, the IPKat is here to bring you a quick summary -- the 150th edition of Never Too Late.

IPKat Eleonora Rosati timely summarizes the two copyright cases that have been referred to the CJEU by the German Federal Court of Justice, regarding some questions that go to the heart of copyright protection. 

“Whether (and what) role “plausibility” should play in the statutory test for sufficiency, and whether a patent should be held insufficient for lack of plausibility even though it is in fact enabled across the full scope of the claim?”, Guest Kat Stephen Jones shares his insights on Warner-Lambert v. Actavis and Generics [2016] EWCA Civ 1006

Guest Kat Mathilde Pavis reviews the French case regarding the word mark “Bébé Lilly”, which extended trade mark protection to the bond existing between an author and his/her work. 

Kat friend Shawn Poon from One Legal LLC in Singapore reports on an interesting decision by the Court of Appeal in Singapore on consumer “indifference” to the mark used.

Our new Guest Kat Mathilde Pavis leads a tour of “Display At Your Own Risk”, and discusses the debates on “Copyright or IP surrogacy?”

No worries, it is never too late...
“What is the future of the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court following the Brexit referendum? When and how will the new system go live? What does industry make of it all?” Eibhlin Vardy brings the issues which were up for debate at AIPPI’s exclusive seminar on “The UP and UPC - institutions and industry panel debate”, hosted at Bird & Bird's offices in New Fetter Lane.

Later, the Part 2 of the report on AIPPI’s seminar covers “The UP and UPC - institutions and panel debate”. 

InternKat Verónica Rodríguez Arguij puts her paws on Dr. Ingrid Kelly’s book Patents for Technology Transfer. The book “is a brief, yet practical guide addressed to Technology Transfer Offices managers working at universities and research institutes with little experience in patent law.”
InternKat Hayleigh Bosher brings her reports on Combat the Copycats, an event organized by the Intellectual Property Awareness Network (IPAN) and City, University of London as a fringe event to Clerkenwell Design Week. (A celebration of design and innovation in Clerkenwell involving 250 exhibitors, more than 90 showrooms, 10 installations and 7 exhibitions).
