The IP Lounge: SCOTUS dog toys, EUIPO FRAND role, and more

MIP Podcast newsletter header banner sample-2000.jpg

In the second episode of our monthly podcast, the Managing IP editorial team unpacks a busy month at SCOTUS, the EU’s solution to the FRAND conundrum, and the biggest stories elsewhere


March was a busy month at the US Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments in Amgen v Sanofi and Jack Daniel's v VIP Products. In the second episode of The IP Lounge podcast, our team runs through the arguments and shares practitioners’ insights on what might come next.

We also discuss this month’s surprising news from the EU, which is lining up the EUIPO – the trademark and design office – to determine fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory rates for standard essential patents.

Elsewhere, we look ahead to April’s likely talking points – including the one-year anniversary of Kathi Vidal’s tenure as USPTO director and World IP Day, which takes place on April 26.
