Thomas Edison Was a “Patent Troll”

Newspapers have reported a massive patent infringement campaign against individuals—almost 1,000 farmers were sued for patent infringement in just one courthouse in a single year! Even worse, the plaintiff is not a competing farmer or manufacturer; instead, it merely bought the patent rights and is now asserting them against unsophisticated defendants for the sole purpose of obtaining royalty payments.

Cuidado com o que fazer na Copa

Marketing de emboscada pode resultar em detenção de três meses a um ano. Uma simples menção a “o evento do Brasil”, ou a mera reprodução de imagens de jogos de futebol em telas de televisores colocados à venda, ou, ainda, uma modelo com bola nos pés e uma camisa amarela no corpo, situações deste tipo podem ser consideradas marketing de emboscada – e resultar em detenção de três meses a um ano.

Patentes, licenças compulsórias e Direitos Humanos

A presente pesquisa se propõe à analise expositiva das questões discrepantes em relação ao atual regime de proteção à propriedade industrial e os direitos humanos fundamentais de acesso a medicamentos e desenvolvimento tecnológico. Busca-se a demonstração da dificuldade de entendimento entre o detentor de uma patente e o que necessita da mesma para a concretização de um direito humano fundamental. Nesse paradigma o licenciamento compulsório resta como subterfúgio legal que equilibra o interesse social da coletividade com o interesse privado do detentor da patente.

Trade marks with reputation harder for rivals to use in keyword advertising following German court ruling, says expert

Munich-based intellectual property law expert Igor Barabash of Pinsent Masons, the law firm behind Out-Law.com, said that a regional court in Frankfurt has ruled that the owner of a trade mark can claim its rights had been infringed by a rival on the basis that it had built up a reputation in that mark which its rival had taken unfair advantage of in a keyword advert online. “The general understanding of the use of third party trademarks within Google AdWords has been that such use is admissible as long the ad does not contain the trade mark itself and is clearly marked as an ‘ad’ when it appears in Google’s search results,”

How To File A Trademark Application: The Guts Of A U.S. Trademark Application (Part 1 Of 2)

Our last article in  Nutter’s How-to Series on Branding contemplated various territorial considerations that go into deciding where to file a trademark application.

To that end, in our next two articles we address eight of the most commonly asked questions that arise when completing a U.S. trademark application filing.

Foreign Theft of U.S. Intellectual Property

The Commissioners on the Theft of American Intellectual Property described individual stories of stolen intellectual property as “infuriating.” In one instance they said, “…a foreign company counterfeited a high-tech product it had been purchasing from a U.S. manufacturer.

Chinese patents Ever more inventive

CHINA’S leaders see patents as rungs on the ladder to becoming an innovation powerhouse. So in five-year plans and through subsidies and official exhortations, they have encouraged locals to file patents. And locals have responded with gusto. Two years ago China’s patent office became the world’s busiest. Sceptics have scoffed that most of those filed are “utility model” patents—short-term ones granted for relatively trivial ideas, as opposed to proper “invention” patents—and that few Chinese inventors have won patents in countries where standards are higher.

Dear Google: Parody Is Not Trademark Infringement

Say it ain’t so, Google. Two weeks ago, the awesome activists at the Peng!

The spoof site included products such as Google Trust (data “insurance”), Google Bee (personal drones), Google Hug (location-based crowdsourced hug matching) and Google Bye (an online profile for the afterlife). The goal: raise awareness about Google’s privacy policies, which Peng! believes are hypocritical. The spoof was great success, prompting a wave of commentary and coverage that recognized it for the satire that it was.

Vimeo Launches Own ContentID System for Copyright Infringements

If you’ve ever tried watching a video on YouTube, I’m sure you’re more than familiar with the ‘Copyright Claim’ graphic (below). For a brief moment, you click on a link thinking you’ll get the video you want, and then BAM! You’re stuck with this annoying screen because Content ID matched up the video you wanted to watch with something else, legitimate or not. It helps save YouTube from a lot of copyright lawsuits, but it’s also one of the biggest annoyances for creators, as their videos can often be claimed unjustly.

The future of patents, all eyes up on high

Just a few short years after the America Invents Act brought some of the most sweeping changes to the patent landscape in 50 years, the Supreme Court is set to bring its own not-so-quiet revolution to patent law this term. Ironically, one would need to also go back 50 years to find another decade when the Supreme Court took up more patent cases (and at the current rate, we might need to reach back to the record of 145 cases set in the 1880’s). So what are the biggest cases up this term, and why does it matter to in-house counsel?

Author’s Heir Delivers Own Knockdown Punch in “Raging Bull” Copyright Suit

In a recent decision that could lead to a surge in lawsuits on behalf of copyright owners, especially those with limited resources to immediately pursue claims, a 6–3 Supreme Court held that laches cannot be invoked as a bar to a copyright owner’s pursuit of a claim for damages brought within §507(b)’s three-year window.1 Even though the copyright owner in this case waited eighteen (18) years to file her lawsuit, the Court determined that the copyright statute takes into account this type of delay by restricting a successful plaintiff to retrospective relief only three years back from the time of suit. The Court’s decision resolved a split among the circuit courts.
