MIP Sept 2018 168

Managing IP’s most recent issue includes articles on Section 101, blockchain, AI, personalised medicine, China FinTech, European trade mark cases and US patent damages

MIp Sept 2018Managing IP’s September issue is now online.

The issue’s cover story focuses on Section 101 in the US, which governs patentable subject matter. We reveal new data that suggests findings of invalidity have dropped since Berkheimer v HP, the most important US subject matter eligibility case of 2018, and analyse the reasons for this.

Also featured in the issue is:

·         European in-house IP counsel discussing the prospects and problems of personalised medicine.

·         AWA Asia’s IP strategy and patent team in Beijing looking at the China FinTech market, discussing available IP protection mechanisms and considering how revised guidelines could provide opportunities.

·         Dmitry Andreev analysing issues in patenting blockchain-related technologies.

·         A European trade mark double header, with David Stone discussing the difficulties of registering and enforcing shape trade marks in the European Union, and Managing IP analysing the most-important recent trade mark-related rulings from the CJEU, including cases involving Nestle, Puma, Louboutin and Red Bull.

·         Vincent Violago and Nikko Quevada tak a look at AI and the issue of bias, including discussing patents directed to bias mitigation.

·         We reveal the highest US patent damages awards so far this year, and reveal why higher damages may now be more achievable.

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.
