This past month, we discussed several interesting developments and aspects of intellectual property (IP) in Kenya including: the Industrial Court decision in Gwer & 5 Others v. Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) & 2 others; the timeframe for the establishment of the Intellectual Property Office of Kenya, the revised Draft National Music Policy and the newly appointed Music Policy Committee and the inclusion of the artist’s resale right in Kenya. Outside Kenya, we discussed the Aereo and Vodacom Please Call Me decisions by the US Supreme Court and South African High Court respectively.
As always, your comments and views on these blogposts are more than welcome. This month was particularly memorable for this blogger, who was recognised among the Top 50 Most Influential People in IP worldwide!
In addition, this blogger was fortunate to travel to the Maasai Mara last week. Below are some of the photos from this memorable trip:
