Managing IP’s November/December issue is now online.
The cover story is our list of the 50 most Influential People in IP. We have relaunched the popular list to recognise individuals who are shaping IP law, policy and business throughout the world.
This includes an in-depth interview with USPTO director Andrei Iancu, who has had a busy time since taking on the role in February this year.
Our write-up of the most influential people also features interviews and profiles of a selection of those on the list, including:
Also featured in the issue is:
· Rankings of the top firms for Patent Cooperation Treaty work, in which data compiled by CPA Global reveals the top filers in the main patenting jurisdictions.
· A comparative study on the stay of patent proceedings in Europe by Malte Köllner, Eric Sergheraert and Mihnea Hanganu.
· Coverage of our IP Corporate Strategy Summit, which discussed issues pertinent to in-house counsel such as new ways to exploit IP assets, managing business risk, influencing policy and resolving disputes.
· An overview of the circumstances under which jewellery may qualify for protection under US copyright and trade mark laws by Dyan Finguerra-DuCharme and Giovanna Marchese of Prior Cashman.
· Discussion of the important points in a new paper that declares that a post-Brexit UK in the UPC is “incompatible with EU principles”.
The issue also features our international briefings, bringing updates from around the globe (also listed below).
