Managing IP’s Mid-Year 2018 issue is now online.
The issue’s cover story assesses the impact that the US Supreme Court’s SAS Institute v Iancu decision has had– and will have – on the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. The article discusses how institution rates will change, how strategy at the Board should evolve, and how district courts and the Federal Circuit will react.
The issue includes Managing IP publishing an in-depth report, in association with Gowling WLG, which discusses the fundamental challenges the automotive industry is facing arising from autonomous driving and connected car technologies.
Also featured in the issue is:
· An analysis of the European Commission’s controversial proposal to introduce an export manufacturing waiver for supplementary protection certificates, which could cause more problems than it solves.
· An assessment of what the UK Supreme Court’s Cartier v BT ruling that brand owners must pay the costs of ISPs blocking sites that sell counterfeit goods means for rights holders.
· A look at how artificial intelligence will impact patent prosecution and litigation.
· Interviews with five leading Asia in-house counsel on how they deal with issues in China including trade mark enforcement, blockchain, AI, software patents and trade secret litigation.
· An article by Julia Anne Matheson and Cathy Liu of Hogan Lovells examining a case considering whether a court decision can have preclusive effect on a TTAB proceeding after the Supreme Court decision in B&B Hardware.
· An overview of the Guangdong High People’s Court guidance for trial of standard essential patent disputes by Ben Ni of King & Wood Mallesons.
In addition, in a sponsored article, Katrin Lindberg and Anette Romare of Valea examine why throughout history women have never been recognised as inventors and why, even today, they own fewer patents than men.
