Initial interest confusion: a new article

"Staying well away from initial interest confusion", by Singapore lawyer Tan Tee Jim (a partner in MARQUES member law firm Lee & Lee), has just been published online in the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) and the print version will be available within the next few weeks. 

This article is of particular interest in that it takes a critical view of the position taken by Mr Justice Arnold in litigation in England and Wales, that the US doctrine of "initial interest confusion" is not only part of English law but is embedded in trade mark rulings of the Court of Justice of the European Union (see the Och-Ziff case, here).  The Singapore courts have rejected "initial interest confusion".
