EU
On 7 January 2010 talks aimed at modernizing the system of private copy levies in Europe broke down when industry called time. The discussions, dating back to July 2008, had been held in the context of a ‘Stakeholder Platform’ facilitated by the European Commission involving Collecting Societies and industry representatives, with BEUC (the European consumer organization) having observer status. After 18 months, as far as industry was concerned, the talks had failed to deliver any con­crete results and there was no prospect even of agreeing a way forward.

UK
The IPO and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are jointly funding a 12-month academic research project to examine the impact of copyright levy systems.
 

  Draft European Commission Block Exemption Regulation on Research and Development Agreements

Document No: PUB 3/10
Posted: 14/12/2010

Article 101(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) iden­ti­fies in general terms classes of agreements that are incompatible with the inter­nal market, subject to the possibility of exemption under Article 101(3), e.g. where the agreement promotes technical or economic progress. If an agreement is “caught” by Article 101(1) but not exempted under Article 101(3), then it is unenforceable.

 

  The Federation on the Web

Document No: PUB 2/10
Posted: 14/12/2010

One of the IP Federation’s chief lobbying tools is its policy papers.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.

Social networking
As well as this website, the Federation has web presence through social networking sites, with a page on Facebook and a profile on LinkedIn. Why not become a fan of the IP Federation today?

  Developments in the Patentability of Computer Software and Business Method Inventions

Document No: PUB 12/10
Posted: 21/07/2010

Recent years have seen the patentability of software and business methods hotly debated, and not just in academic circles. With protests in the streets of Munich and over a hundred personal and professional opinions on the subject filed by amicus curiae, there can be little doubt as to the public interest in this evolving and controversial issue. With judicial opinions on developments in the laws of Europe and the United States having been published in 2010, it is timely to explore the perspectives and most significant effects.

 

  European Qualifying Examination (EQE)

Document No: PUB 9/10
Posted: 20/07/2010

In 2012, the EQE will have its first major change since the first examination in 1979. With effect from 2012 there will be a pre-examination which is designed to act as a filter to reduce the number of candidates sitting the full examination without sufficient preparation. The “main” examination in its new form will be held for the first time in 2013. Candidates must pass the pre-examination before being allowed to sit the main examination. The pre-examination may be taken after two years full-time training.
