The most-read story of the month was our special feature for International Women’s Day, on March 8. With insight from several counsel at international brands, the article assessed the progress of, and challenges for, women in senior IP roles.
Next up was our story on the fallout from the USPTO’s proposed rule that foreign trademark filers be represented by US counsel. As we reported, some foreign attorneys, particularly from China, have been looking to cheat the proposal.
Our third most popular story was on the interplay between IP and technology M&A deals. In-house counsel who spoke to us for the article explained that having tightly-drafted licensing deals is one of the major considerations in this area.
Next was a story on copyright. After the US Supreme Court ruled that copyright owners must obtain a registration before they may sue for infringement, lawyers told us that the decision has clear practical implications for companies. You can read the reaction here.
Our fifth most-read story was on a case from Singapore, where the Court of Appeal ruled in a counterfeiting dispute between Burberry and Megastar. Lawyers told Managing IP that the judgment will have significant ramifications for brand owners.
