Our February issue – trade mark rankings, SEPs special report and more
Managing IP’s most recent issue includes our trade mark rankings, a standard essential patents special report, a review of CJEU trade mark cases, AI protection strategies for patents and trade secrets, and data on the top parties in US district court and at the PTAB
Managing IP’s February
2018 issue is now online.
The issue features our highly-anticipated
IP STARS trade mark rankings for 2018. These present
the leading firms for trade mark work in more than 80
jurisdictions. It is the first set of results from the research
for this year’s IP STARS. Managing IP will be
publishing patent rankings in its March issue and copyright
rankings in its April issue.
The February 2018 cover story is a two-part special on
standard essential patents. The
first part analyses whether the European
Commission’s recent communication on SEPs
successfully balanced competing interests or merely dodged the
difficult questions. The
second part provides takeaways from TCL v Ericsson
– the fourth US bench trial to determine a FRAND
royalty – and also reports on a possible change in the
US Department of Justice's approach to SEPs and analyses
Huawei's win over Samsung in China.
Elsewhere, we have articles on the
European cases to watch out for, a review of the
top CJEU trade mark cases last year,
AI protection strategies for patents and trade secrets, and
data and analysis on the top parties in US district court
and at the PTAB last year.
The issue also
features our international briefings, bringing updates from
around the globe.
