Managing IP’s April 2018 issue is now online.
The issue features our widely-read IP STARS copyright rankings for 2018. The rankings cover more than 30 jurisdictions. Their publication follows the trade mark rankings in the February issue and patent rankings in the March issue.
The April cover story is a special report on blockchain. In it, Ellie Mertens looks at how the technology will change intellectual property, and the opportunities it presents for patents, trade mark and copyright.
Also featured in the issue is:
· A critique of India’s controversial Form 27 requiring patentees to submit information on the working of patents.
· Two features on cannabis trade marks. One reveals trade mark applications are soaring in Canada ahead of the enactment of legislation that will permit recreational use. The other looks at how legalisation by US states is prompting trade mark registration questions and disputes.
