The IP Lounge: India’s open legal market, UPC latest

MIP Podcast newsletter header banner sample-2000.jpg

In the latest episode of our monthly podcast, the team discusses six months of India’s reformed system for foreign law firms, the latest UPC trends and SEP developments


It’s been another busy month for the Managing IP editorial team.

In this episode of The IP Lounge, deputy editor Max Walters and senior reporter Rory O’Neill meet in London to discuss the latest IP news and trends. They are joined by Sukanya Sarkar, Managing IP’s senior reporter for Asia, who dials in from India.

Sukanya reviews the first six months of India’s liberalised rules for foreign law firms and asks whether IP firms are beginning to eye a previously untapped market.

We also discuss the Unified Patent Court, including a first ruling from its Court of Appeal, and look at whether the forum is doing any more to increase transparency.

Sticking with Europe, there have been plenty of developments on the European Commission’s plans to overhaul the standard-essential patent framework, while the EUIPO’s latest executive director João Negrão has officially taken office.
