Around the IP Blogs

This Kat has now woken up from his winter slumber.  Let’s see what happened in the IP blogosphere during the first week of 2022:- 


The Kluwer Copyright Blog wrote about the EU concept of work in relation to football matches (see here) and the possible sources of originality in the filming and broadcasting of the match (see here). 



In the United States, PatentlyO reported that Apotex Inc. recently issued a petition for writ of certiorari in the case of Apotex Inc. v Cephalon, Inc., asking the Supreme Court to revisit motivation to combine, obvious to try and whether the non-obvious contribution needs to be an improvement over the prior art. 


The TechnoLlama provided an interesting discussion of virtual property in the Metaverse.

As per tradition, the TTABlogger set out ten decisions (here and here) that it considered to be the most important and/or most interesting in the United States for the year 2021.

Turning over to India, SpicyIP looked back at India’s top IP developments in 2021.  These were divided into three categories, i.e. top IP Judgments/Orders (Topicality/Impact), top IP Judgments/Orders (Jurisdiction/Legal Lucidity), and other IP developments.

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.
