Following on her contribution to the soon-to-be-published “Overlapping Intellectual Property Rights” from Oxford University Press, Tara has been asked to contribute blog posts to the London-based IP blog IPKat during the first part of 2012.  “Launched in 2003 as a teaching aid for Intellectual Property Law students in London, the IPKat’s weblog has become a popular source of material, comment and amusement for IP owners, practitioners, judges, students and administrators.”

The plan is that this will not delay Tara’s foray into blogging for Aaron Sanders, but for now, her debut IP blog can be viewed here.  (Warning, if you’ve had enough talk about SOPA for the time being, you might want to wait for the next one).

 

Catching up with SOPA (and Hello, IPKat Readers!)

Greetings, readers! I greatly appreciate IPKat’s invitation to come and guest blog for the first half of 2012. I hope to show that the gracious invitation was well-bestowed, and I look forward to lively (but polite) discussions with many of you on U.S. IP issues.

On the eve of the day that some of the most important websites in the United States (Google and Wikipedia, for starters) demonstrate their opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act that is lurching its way through the halls of Congress, this guest Kat thought it would be apropos to use her debut blog on this illustrious site to guide readers through the twisted course that this bill has taken so far. (If you only read English, you can’t look at Wikipedia today anyway, so you might as well spend your time with us). IP Kat has posted on its views on the responses to SOPA recently – I hope to just give you a few more bits into the background).  Read More.
