IP Yorkshire is not alone. We now have a companion blog for IP news in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire and Cumbria called IP North West. This will cover workshops and seminars, inventors' club meetings, clinics, decisions of judges sitting in Manchester and Liverpool on IP cases, news and gossip and all the sort of things that go on our side of the Pennines that are covered by IP Yorkshire. In the theare they say that what Manchester does today the world does tomorrow. Well in IP maybe it is what Yorkshire does today. But never mind, as a native of Manchester albeit of Yorkshire parentage I can add that Lancastrians have never been backwards in coming forwards. Happen!
