  Additional Employee Inventor Compensation – A right too far?

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

The issue of employee inventions and the extent to which employee inventors should be compensated has in recent times become a hot topic in the UK. Since the Patents Act 1977 there has been a statutory right for employees to be awarded additional compensation over and above their salary for patented inventions made by them during the course of their employment where "having regard among other things to the size and nature of the employers undertaking, the invention or the patent for it (or the combination of both) is of outstanding benefit to the employer; and, by reason of those facts it is just" for an award to be made.

 

  An Update on the America Invents Act (AIA) and Strategies to Consider

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

The America Invents Act (AIA), the greatest change to American patent law in over 150 years, was enacted in September 2011, but many first-inventor-to-file (FITF) implementing rules were just recently proposed in July 2012, as the US patent system prepares to tran­sition to a first-inventor-to-file (FITF) system on March 16, 2013. In anticipation of this 2013 transi­tion, there are three helpful perspectives with which to view the im­ple­ment­ation of the AIA’s FITF system: (1) the perspective of pre-AIA US patent filings before March 16, 2013; (2) the perspective of post-AIA US patent filings with “effective” filing dates on or after March 16, 2013; and (3) the perspective of transitional US patent filings filed in the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on or after March 16, 2013, but with an “effective” filing date before March 16, 2013. This third perspective takes into account: a US patent application filed on or after March 16, 2013 which claims a benefit of priority under the Paris Convention to an earlier filed non-US application; and/or a US patent ap­pli­ca­tion filed on or after March 16, 2013 as a National Stage application of a PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) applica­tion filed before March 16, 2013. Understanding the proper “perspective” which applies to each US patent ap­plica­tion filing will be critical to building a strong US patent portfolio as the perspective will impact, for example, the scope of relevant prior art and attendant duty to disclose information to the USPTO, and an appropriate claim drafting strategy.
 

  Proposal for Collaborative Search and Examination (CSE) in the PCT

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

Collaborative search and examination (CSE) has been the subject of prolonged support by the Federation, beginning with a presentation by a Vice-President in June 2007 at an international Colloquium on Patent Quality in Amsterdam, and in 2012 involving con­tribu­tions by the President at similar events in London and Warsaw. Since 2010, support for CSE has been given also by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), which has been valuable because of ICC’s relationship with WIPO.

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

In December 2011, the Government published proposals for implementing a number of the recommendations relating to copyright which it had accepted in its August 2011 response to the Hargreaves Review of IP and Growth. Simultaneously Baroness Wilcox, the IP minister at the time, launched a Government consultation seeking views on these proposals.

 

  European Patent Office (EPO) Update

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

Users welcomed a slowing of the pace of amendment of the European Patent Convention (EPC) itself, as the EPO digests the ramifications of previous changes. This did not mean that the EPO rested on its laurels in 2012 and in other areas it was active in ways that users welcome, such as the innovations in the area of machine translations.

  Revision of the rules for the assessment of licensing agreements for the transfer of technology

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

On 6 December 2011, the European Commission launched a public consultation for the revision of the current framework for the assessment of technology transfer agreements, including the Technology Transfer Block Exemption Regulation (TTBER) and its corresponding Notice, scheduled to expire in April 2014.
