  Hargreaves Review – Call for Evidence in the Designs Sector

Document No: PUB 5/11
Posted: 13/02/2012

On 21 September 2011, the Government launched a call for evidence on how the UK intel­lectual property system can better support “our globally successful design industry”.

Document No: PUB 4/11
Posted: 13/02/2012

The Report from the Max Planck Institute resulting from the Study on the Overall Func­tioning of the European Trade Mark System - to which the Federation had submitted evidence – was eventually published on 15 February 2011. The Study upheld the principle espoused by the Federation to the effect that genuine use of a Community Trade Mark Registration in one Member State was sufficient to maintain the validity of the registration against an attack based on the ground of non-use. Amongst the other recommendations, the Report advocated the use of the large surplus of funds to establish an organisation to tackle counterfeiting (the Observatory) rather than return fees to registered owners. The funds would also be distributed to operating and educational projects under the auspices of the National Offices. Both of these projects will require continuing funding by trade mark owners even though copyright and design infringements would also be covered by the pro­posals. The Commission will produce a Green Paper in 2012 setting out proposals for the reform of the Community Trade Mark Directive and Regulation taking into account the recommendations, as well as other possible changes.
 

  Copyright Levies

Document No: PUB 3/11
Posted: 13/02/2012

Since the collapse of the Commission-backed Stakeholder Platform in early 2010, industry has focused its efforts primarily on seeking to get copyright levies back on the EU policy / legislative agenda. Against the odds, that strategy has paid off – the topic is now well and truly back in the political spotlight.
 

  Draft European Commission Block Exemption Regulation on R&D Agreements

Document No: PUB 2/11
Posted: 13/02/2012

An item in the December 2010 issue of Trends and Events (pages 6-8) reviewed block exemption regulations (BERs) under Article 101(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the Euro­pean Union (TFEU), and in particular the two BERs then most relevant to Federation mem­bers, namely Regulation 772/2004 on technology transfer agreements and Regulation 2659/2000 on research and development (R&D) agreements. The second of these was due to expire at the end of the month; and the item also set out the two key points in the Federation’s submission on the Commission’s draft replacement for 2659/2000.

 
 

  The Federation's achievements

Document No: PUB 1/11
Posted: 13/02/2012

One of the IP Federation’s chief lobbying tools is its policy papers. These are all available on the website at:
The policy papers on the website represent the views of the innovative and influen­tial com­panies which are members of the Federation. Members are con­sulted on their views and opinions and encouraged to debate and explore issues of practice and policy. Only after consensus is achieved are external bodies informed of the col­lective views of industry via the Federation.
