  Role of Government in Protecting and promoting Intellectual Property

Document No: PUB 20N/12
Posted: 08/03/2013

The All-Party Intellectual Property Group announced on 14 March 2012 that it was to conduct an inquiry into the role of Government in protecting and promoting intellectual property. The Group decided to look at this issue because responsibility for development and enforcement of IP policy sits across many Government departments and agencies. There have been numerous reviews into IP policy in the last ten years but the decision-making framework within which policy is developed and agreed had not been sufficiently examined.

Document No: PUB 20O/12
Posted: 08/03/2013

One of the IP Federation’s chief lobbying tools is its policy papers. These are all available on the website at:

http://www.ipfederation.com/

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.

In order to ensure that the IPO is properly led during this period, John asked his deputy, Sean Dennehey to take on the role of acting Chief Executive.

 

  Trade marks update

Document No: PUB 20Q/12
Posted: 08/03/2013

With the exception of the IP TRANSLATOR Case No C-307/10 (discussed below) there have been no game changing decisions arising from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) relating to trade marks during the year.

Interflora v Marks & Spencer CJEU Ruling in Case C-323/09 relating to keyword advertising on Google has been remitted to the High Court to determine if trade mark infringement, as opposed to fair competition, had arisen. In passing, the case has given rise to some discouraging guidelines on the use of evidence to demonstrate confusion and customer perception.
