These Kats are hunting for Easter eggs
What could make a Kat reader's Easter happier than reading the latest updates from around the blogs?


The buzz surrounding non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has been picked up by several IP blogs, with both TechnoLlama and The Fashion Law reflecting on what one buys when purchasing an NFT and where its value comes from.


FOSS Patents argued that Tesla has made a number of moves which may yet prove to be missteps when it comes to licensing negotiations and patent disputes, not least when it comes to the physical locations of its Texas and Brandenburg factories.

The Kluwer Patent Blog gave an overview of a recent decision of the Barcelona Court of Appeal which held that the "problem-solution" approach in revocation suits requires its first step to succeed, or else the entire assessment must fail.

Trade marks

Whether there is an unbreakable link between presenting a city name together with a year (in which that city will host the Olympic Games), e.g. TOKYO 2021 - even when combined with another sign - and the Olympics is the question considered over on IP Watchdog, thanks to a dispute between Puma and the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee.


Class 46 summarised recent developments in intellectual property damages awards in China, in areas including trade marks, copyright, patents, and trade secrets.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
