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

The Summer is almost over but do not be sad! The 161st edition of Never Too Late is out to cheer you up!

No place for eggs in this basket
Before its usual summer pause, the Italian Supreme Court issues groundbreaking decision on punitive damages, opening the door for IP claims, giving us food for thought. Kat friend Roberto Jacchia reports on the scoop: this is in fact the first time that the Supreme Court rules in favour of these type of damages.

InternKat Verónica brought us with part two of her own TILTing Perspectives 2017, focussing on digital exhaustion and music-file sharing. The first part, discussing online enforcement and black box tinkering, can be found here.

With Freedom of panorama in Portugal: content and scope of the exception, Kat Eleonora is bringing us on a journey to discover more on this copyright exception. After discovering more about Italy, now Carlos Madureira and David Serras Pereira from the Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores tell us all about the Portuguese system.


Closing with some more food for thought, literally, When "mayo" is not mayonnaise, yet still is mayonnaise: All a matter of the label? Kat Neil investigates on a complaint raised by Unilever against Hampton Creek, a food company holder of the trade mark JUST MAYO, an eggless vegetable spread that really, is not mayo at all.
