In the latest episode of our monthly podcast, the team discusses US and Asian approaches to the UPC, updates to trademark law in Japan and China, and the latest attempt at US patent reform


It’s been another busy month for the Managing IP editorial team. Now that the Unified Patent Court is firmly on the scene companies are beginning to decide their strategies.

In this episode of The IP Lounge, our reporters in India and the US provide special insight into how Asian and US companies are approaching Europe’s new patent litigation system.

We also discuss industry reaction to trademark reform in Japan and China, whether the troubled relationship between the US and China is affecting legal practices, and dissect two US Supreme Court rulings.

Finally, we delve into the latest attempt at US patent reform and ask whether recent proposals are likely to succeed or fail.
