Hijacked book-launch? Or two for one ...

This blogger attended a very pleasant event at London's Oxford and Cambridge Club yesterday afternoon, this being the launch of Angela Fox's new tome, Intellectual Property Enterprise Court: Practice and Procedure (already noted here on PatLit and soon to be reviewed on the IPKat).  To his delight he was able to exchange some amicable words not only with the excellent Angela herself but also with that court's Enterprise Judge, Richard Hacon, plus a brace of more senior judges who creditably support numerous IP events in their own spare time and make themselves generally visible, demonstrating the fact that they are not remote from society but an active component of it.

To his surprise, though, this blogger discovered that Angela's was not the only new book on the block, as it were.  On display, indeed on the same table as Angela's book, were copies of the second edition European Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court, an agreeably short softback by Angela's fellow Jenkins partner Hugh Dunlop that apparently had rolled off the presses earlier in the day.  This text is the second edition, a year later than its predecessor, and it includes a brief commentary on the structure, the legislation and the draft 16th revision of the Rules of Procedure of the Unified Court.  You can get a bit more information from this book, plus an order form and, if further temptation were needed, a review of the 2013 edition, from the website of publishers CIPA here.
