The latest Part of the Australian Intellectual Property Journal includes the following content: “Whose Fair Dealing? Third-Party Reliance on the Fair Dealing Exception for Parody or Satire” – Jani McCutcheon and Simon Holloway; “The Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers Rights Act 2001 (In) and New Plant Varieties, Extant Varieties and Farmers’ Varieties: A New Form of Property?” – Emma Trustum-Behan and Charles Lawson; “Some Observations on Trans-Tasman Trade Mark Law” – Paul Sumpter.
The latest Part of the Tort Law Review publishes three interesting articles on various aspects of tort law. The first article is by Sasha Baglay and looks at the theoretical and practical implications of recent Canadian jurisprudence on immigration-related torts. The second article comes from Alexandra Mogyoros and examines the distinction between direct and indirect acts in battery. The final article is by Jai Singh who argues that the tort defence of voluntary assumption of risk provides a simple and credible solution to the problem of vicarious immunity.
