While the editorial team was attending the International Trademark Association (INTA) Meeting in Washington DC last week, subscribers have been receiving their printed versions of the May 2012 issue. If you've not already received yours, you should do any minute now.
On a personal note, we'd like to thank those of our contributors and subscribers who took time out from their busy INTA schedules to visit the Oxford University Press exhibit booth and give us the benefit of their thoughts and opinions. The ideal situation is one in which the journal's authors, readers and subscribers are more or less the same people with the same interests. That way, we can be confident that -- despite its professional credentials -- JIPLP reflects the values and concerns of a unique, intimate and connected IP community.
