The best IP judgment that has never been written

Here's a bit of summer fun from Oxford University Press, publishers of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) -- it's a competition with a chance to be creative, to play at being an intellectual property judge (even if you are one) and win something of value.  The details, which appear on JIPLP's official website, are reproduced here for your convenience:
Enter our JIPLP competition for 2012 and you could win a year’s free subscription to JIPLP. All you have to do is send us your account of the best IP judgment that has never been written.

This should be a short piece of writing explaining who you are (contributor, board member, subscriber etc) and what you think is the best IP judgment that has never been written.

The winning entry will receive £250 of OUP books and a year's free personal sub to JIPLP and the runner-up will receive £100 worth of OUP books. Entries will be judged on how entertainingly written and engaging they are and, the extent to which they draw on actual examples of content from intellectual property writing. 
The winning entries will be decided upon by JIPLP editor Jeremy Phillips and the JIPLP Team at OUP. We’ll also post the winning entry to the JIPLP website. Entries should be between 500-600 words, and be submitted by 30 September 2012. The winning entries will be announced on 3 December. Entries to be submitted to Christopher.wogan@oup.com
