Never Too late: If you missed the IPKat last week!

If you've been too busy to stay up-to-date this week, never fear, the recap of the latest IP news and analysis is here:

International Law

Eleonora Rosati outlined the context and findings of a recent study that she was commissioned to produce for WIPO. The report examines the issues with determining where an alleged IPR infringement has been committed, especially given the developments during the transition from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.

A cat reflecting on "medical uses"

Rose Hughes discussed a recent decision (T 0558/20) from the EPO Board of Appeal that considered the correct approach to the assessment of second medical use claims. The Board rejected the approach of requiring a "credible" technical effect of the claimed use for novelty.

Trademarks and Designs

Hayleigh Bosher provided an update on the UKIPO's second round of consultations on proposed changes to deliver better digital services, with the main focus on trade mark and design services. Readers can respond to the consultation with their views on these topics, before 11:59am on 31 October 2023.


In the latest update on the ongoing dispute, Hayleigh Bosher discussed the US Federal Court decision  that Ed Sheeran’s song, Thinking Out Loud, had been created independently and therefore did not infringe the copyright of the song Let’s Get It On performed by Marvin Gaye.

Hayleigh Bosher also summarised the interim report from the UK Science, Innovation and Technology Select Committee inquiry into the impact of AI on several sectors. The report identifies twelve challenges for policymakers to address, which include intellectual property and copyright.

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.
