Christmas break

As reported by Afro IP here, with the Parliament having gone on recess last week marks the end of the road for the Anti Counterfeit Bill 2008.

Hopefully the break and the new year will inject fresh ideas to take the process to a another level other than debating on whether to distinguish counterfeit medicine from other counterfeit goods.

As suggested by the Afro IP post, it may be necessary to decide whether to orientate the debate on how to tackle the menace of counterfeits in a different direction such as amending the existing laws rather than coming up with another layer of law which comes with its own added baggage.

On that score IP Kenya would also like to take a deserved Christmas break until January next year.

We wish our readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
