Here's the new team to steer JIPLP

At the end of November 2015 Jeremy Phillips steps down as Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP), the journal of which he was the founding editor at its launch exactly ten years earlier.  Jeremy's responsibilities as Editor will be taken over by a fresh, new panel of three editors, all of whom are currently members of the JIPLP Editorial Board. They are (in alphabetical order):
Stefano Barazza

A lecturer in the Faculty of Business and Society, the University of South Wales, Stefano also provides training for the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office. An Italian-qualified avvocato, Stefano formerly ran his own practice in Udine. A frequent contributor to JIPLP, Stefano, who has also contributed to the IPKat and PatLit weblogs, is particularly interested in patent and trade mark rights.

Eleonora Rosati

Currently Deputy Editor of JIPLP, copyright specialist Eleonora holds a doctorate from the European University Institute, Florence. Well known as a regular member of the IPKat weblog team, she is an Italian-qualified avvocato who practised in the Milan office of Bird & Bird. Eleonora lectures in intellectual property law at the University of Southampton and runs the e-LAWnora consultancy. A regular contributor to the journal, her next article, "Are national courts the addressees of the InfoSoc three-step test?", is co-authored with Sir Richard Arnold.

Marius Schneider

An attorney before the Brussels and Mauritius Bars, Marius heads the IP boutique firm IPvocate, the IP department of Belgian law firm CEW & Partners. An experienced IP litigator, Marius is a member of the EU Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights and the immediate past chairman of the European Communities Trade Mark Association Anti-Counterfeiting Committee. Marius is co-editor of Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights through Border Measures - Law and Practice (Oxford University Press). Marius has already masterminded some JIPLP special issues.
In addition, with the journal continuing to grow in readership and momentum, Sarah Harris (currently the journal's Content Commissioning Editor) is stepping up to shoulder the burden of further editorial and administrative responsibilities. Legally-educated Sarah, who holds an LLM from the University of London, has a vast experience of publishing, both within intellectual property law and beyond it and has been with JIPLP since its inception.

As outgoing Editor, Jeremy wishes his successor team the very greatest of success in continuing JIPLP's adventure in intellectual property publishing, in maintaining its relevance and topicality and in nurturing its unique presence on the social media. He has every confidence that they will improve the journal's breadth of vision and urges everyone to give them their fullest support.

There are a couple of new Editorial Board appointees too. This blog will be announcing them in the course of this week.
