MBHB has released Volume 5 of its snippets newsletter. snippets was originally started by a group of associates at MBHB (who are now partners). And, in many ways, Patently-O is a snippets spin-off. Contents of the most recent edition:
MedImmune’s Impact for Licensees by Josh Rich
Crafting the Cease and Desist Letter in Light of MedImmune by Dave Frischkorn and Rory Shea
E-Discovery FAQ by Richard Carden and Jennifer Kurcz
Trademark Infringement and Web Page Metadata by Eric Moran and Jim Suggs.
There is also a Special Alert discussing the impact of KSR v. Teleflex by Kevin Noonan, Jeremy Noe, Dan Williams, and Paul Kafadar.
Verizon v. Vonage: Many casual commentators have indicated their belief that Verizon’s VOIP patents are "junk." A jury held that they were nonobvious and the judge concurred. On Friday, the CAFC rejected Vonage’s plea for an immediate retrial based on the outcome of KSR v. Teleflex. The appeal continues.
There has been some discussion on Patently-O regarding European and Japanese patent blogs. My money is on IPEG (de Wit) and IP Kat (Phillips) as the best amongst several good in Europe and the UK. I don’t read Japanese, but I have not heard of anything comparable discussing Japanese patent law. The Japanese IP High Court does have a nice english website. Link.
