Have you packed your
SPF 70-guaranteed IP books?

With summer in full swing in the Northern hemisphere, it might perhaps feel natural to long for things other than IP, but there is plenty of IP-related activity happening before and right after the hot months. Take a look at some announcements below and do not forget always to monitor The IPKat's Events page!

DABUS ... in Germany

First of all, some hot-off-the-press news: the German Federal Court of Justice (BGH) has just published its decision on AI inventorship, substantially concluding that a human contribution (not necessarily inventive) is invariably needed, even for AI-generated inventions. The person who has made such a contribution must be identified and designated as inventor.

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.
