Managing IP’s May 2018 issue is now online.
The issue features a three-part special report looking at brand strategies. In the first part, we reveal how evolving technologies are changing the counterfeiting game on both sides, as a tool for both prevention and evasion. In the second part, we ask in-house counsel how their strategies for fighting counterfeits are evolving. Lastly, we analyse some of the biggest cease and desist letter successes and failures in the past few years.
Also featured in the issue is:
- An overview by Dr Claudia Tapia and Dr Spyros Makris of the case law in Europe exploring the framework for licensing negotiations regarding FRAND-accessible standard essential patents, which was established by the decision of the CJEU in the matter Huawei v ZTE.
- A round-up of all the winners from our three Awards Dinners in March, which took place in London, New York and Hong Kong.
- An analysis of India’s Intellectual Property Appellate Board to see what progress is being made after nearly two years at a standstill.
- An assessment of the impact President Trump is having on intellectual property.
- An update on legislation that amends Mexico’s trade mark opposition system.
In addition, in a sponsored article, CPA Global analyses a survey of IP law firms and corporations, evaluating what law firms can do to better serve their clients in the IP arena.
The issue also features our international briefings, bringing updates from around the globe (also listed below), as well as our regular Utynam column of IP curiosities and controversies.
