The IP Lounge: EUIPO top job race, UPC countdown, and more

MIP Podcast newsletter header banner sample-2000.jpg

In the first of a new monthly podcast, the Managing IP editorial team unpacks the race for the top job at the EUIPO, the key UPC trends to watch, and the biggest stories in Asian IP

The search for a new EUIPO executive director is on and competition is fierce. There are three candidates already in the public domain, each with significant ties to the office. In the first episode of The IP Lounge podcast, our team runs through the contenders and explains how we got here.

We also discuss the official start of the Unified Patent Court and what to watch from now until the end of the sunrise period on June 1.

Finally, we look at the proposed overhaul of China’s trademark laws and India’s possible abandonment of more than 180,000 trademark filings.
