AU - Matsuyama, Akifumi. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Patent application trends were investigated for induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technologies, particularly disease-specific cell technologies related to iPSCs, in the U.S., Japanese, and European applications during 2017. The number of patent applications for iPSC technologies was 1516 in the United States, 895 in Japan, and 420 in Europe, with 5% of applications for disease-specific cell technologies. In contrast, the percentages of patent applications for iPSC preparation and differentiation technologies were 17% and 23%, respectively. Patent applications for disease-specific cell technologies were classified into four technical fields and 14 disorder groups. In the technical fields, patent applications for genetically engineered cell ...
The European Patent Office (EPO) is still granting controversial patents on seeds. In January 2018, the EPO granted a patent on melons with increased resistance to downy mildew (EP 2455475). This patent is based on conventional breeding: The genome was screened for specific mutations without using methods of genetic engineering. The patent holder is the Dutch company ENZA Zaden. Apparently, the patent does not involve any inventiveness: ENZA has already been granted six other patents on grapes, cucumber, soybeans, onions, tomatoes and potatoes - all of which are more or less based on the same mutations. One single random mutation can be enough to patent a whole vegetable garden. These patents are not about inventions, they just aim to monopolise biodiversity needed for future plant breeding, Christoph Then says for No Patents on Seeds!. The melon patent provides evidence that the EPO is continuing to grant patents on plants and animals derived from conventional breeding. In June 2017, the 38 ...
Trademark is a distinctive logo, phrase, or design such as Dunkin Donuts® or Microsoft® that uniquely identifies a particular commercial product or series of products with a specific commercial supplier. The symbols ™ or ® are often used to alert the public to the trademark. Anyone claiming ownership of a trademark can use ™ to alert others to their ownership of a trademark. The ® symbol on the other hand indicates that the trademark has been officially registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Federal registration of a trademark is useful in preventing foreign infringement on the trademark and in obtaining registration rights to the trademark outside the United States.. ...

To the great joy of some and the great outrage of others, the United States Patent and Trademark Office Trademark Trial and Appeal Board cancelled six federal trademark registrations for the name of the Washington Redskins on July 18, 2014. The cancellations came as a result of a long battle by Native American individuals and groups, since at least the early 1990s, to petition the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to agree that the name was offensive to Native Americans and thus undeserving of trademark protection under federal law 15 U.S.C. §1052. The portion of the Lanham Act in Section 1052 disallows trademark registration for any mark that [c]onsists of or comprises immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter; or matter which may disparage or falsely suggest a connection with persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or bring them into contempt, or disrepute.. The direct impetus of the recent cancellations was a petition filed by six Native American individuals in ...

One underexplored factor directly affecting firms use of trademarks relates to the fees associated with obtaining a mark. This paper provides econometric estimates of the fee elasticity of demand for trademark applications. Using a panel of monthly international trademark applications, I find that a 10-percent increase in fees leads to a 2.5-4.0-percent decrease in applications. The econometric analysis also highlights that trademark filings react strongly to economic activity. The results bear implications for literature on the value of trademarks and for the use of trademarks as innovation indicator. Specifically, low elasticity estimates suggest that trademarks provide significant economic value to their owners relative to their costs. However, one must exercise caution when comparing trademark numbers across countries to the extent that fees might differ substantially. de Rassenfosse, Gaetan

TY - CONF. T1 - Discrimination against foreigners in the patent system : evidence from standard-essential patents. AU - de Rassenfosse, G.. AU - Raiteri, Emilio. AU - Bekkers, R.N.A.. PY - 2017/6. Y1 - 2017/6. N2 - This paper tests for traces of discrimination against foreign firms in the patent prosecution process. It focuses on the case of China and looks specifically at patent applications declared as essential to a technological standard. The choice of standard-essential patents (SEPs) is particularly suited because of the strategic importance of such patents for Chinas indigenous innovation program. We exploit information on the timing of disclosure as SEP (before or after the patent application enters examination) to infer the likely presence of discrimination. We find that patent applications by foreign firms are treated unfavorably when examiners know that they are declared as standard essential. We interpret this result as a case of technology protectionism.. AB - This paper tests ...
The grant and enforcement of patents are governed by national laws, and also by international treaties, where those treaties have been given effect in national laws. Patents are granted by national or regional patent offices.[29] A given patent is therefore only useful for protecting an invention in the country in which that patent is granted. In other words, patent law is territorial in nature. When a patent application is published, the invention disclosed in the application becomes prior art and enters the public domain (if not protected by other patents) in countries where a patent applicant does not seek protection, the application thus generally becoming prior art against anyone (including the applicant) who might seek patent protection for the invention in those countries. Commonly, a nation or a group of nations forms a patent office with responsibility for operating that nations patent system, within the relevant patent laws. The patent office generally has responsibility for the grant ...
Under the United States Trademark Act (Lanham Act), 15 U.S.C. Sec. 1051, et seq, a trademark may be any word, name, symbol or device or any combination thereof adopted and used by a manufacturer or merchant to identify his goods and distinguish them from those manufactured or sold by others. Although the Lanham Acts definition of what is protectable as a trademark appears to be short and simple, the scope of its potential coverage extends as far as the creativity of marketing executives and is limited only by the decisions of judges and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.. The most common and straightforward protection extends to words. For example, PALMOLIVE is a famous trademark. Because the statute talks about a combination of any of the elements, a series of words turned into a slogan (e.g., SOFTENS HANDS WHILE YOU DO DISHES) can also be protected as a trademark. Of course, the slogan must function as a trademark, which usually means that it must be on the goods themselves rather ...

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court on Monday struck down part of a law that bans offensive trademarks, ruling in favor of an Asian-American rock band called the Slants and giving a major boost to the Washington Redskins in their separate legal fight over the team name.. The justices were unanimous in saying that the 71-year-old trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes free speech rights guaranteed in the Constitutions First Amendment.. It offends a bedrock First Amendment principle: Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend, Justice Samuel Alito said in his opinion for the court.. Slants founder Simon Tam tried to trademark the band name in 2011, but the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied the request on the ground that it disparages Asians. A federal appeals court in Washington later said the law barring offensive trademarks is unconstitutional and the Supreme Court agreed.. The Redskins made similar arguments after the trademark office ruled in ...

Colombia has reached an agreement with the USPTO to participate in the Patent Prosecution Highway, becoming the first South American country to gain such status. With Colombias sturdy economy and confident move into the global marketplace, this agreement could not come at a better time. Understanding the need for more robust patent laws, the Colombian government is aggressively reshaping its IP system. The authors had the opportunity to meet with Jose Luis Londoño Fernández, Superintendent of Industrial Property (Colombias equivalent to the USPTO). He was enthusiastic about the Colombian patent system and the Patent Prosecution Highway and is eagerly seeking to educate Colombians and the global public about the mechanisms available for protecting their ideas and innovations. Mr. Londoño believes so strongly in patent protection that he is in the process of separating the patent office from the trademark and copyright office to allow the patent department to rapidly expand. Mr. Londoños ...

Could it be happening!? All it took was a government shutdown to convince Valve to take what looks to be the next step towards Half-Life 3. As spotted by NeoGAF, Valve has registered Half-Life 3 with Europes trademarks office, the OHIM.. Upon visiting the actual European trademark office website and looking up the trademark (#012180394), you can clearly see its legit. Valve apparently registered for the trademark on September 29, 2013, and its currently listed as Computer game software; Electronic game software; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; Video game software.. While the trademark appears to be official, Valves actual motivation remains in question. Is Valve actually taking the next step in developing Half-Life 3 or are they merely trying to protect their IP?. Things certainly just got a whole lot more interesting!. ...
Section 3 of the Act changes the United States patent system from a first to invent system to a first inventor to file system. This results in several significant changes to obtaining a patent in this country. First, there is no longer a one year grace period for filing a patent application and any patent or printed publication, or public use or offer for sale, up to the filing date of the application, can act as a bar. As an additional change, the public use or offer for sale activities that serve as a bar can occur anywhere in the world. One significant exception in the new system is that disclosures made by the inventors themselves, or any disclosure based on information obtained from the inventors, will not act as a bar to a patent if the patent application is filed within one year from the date of the disclosure. This section will become effective 18 months from the date of enactment of the bill (i.e., March 16, 2013) and will apply only to applications filed with a priority date after ...

Protecting intellectual property rights is a critical component to the success of a technology company. In order for a tech company to determine how to protect its intellectual property, the company should understand how the key intellectual property rights work. In this Part 1 of a three-part series, we discuss how patent, copyright, and trade secret ownership works in the United States if there is no agreement in place to allocate these rights.. Patents Patents are a right to exclude others from using a technology for a limited period of time. In exchange for these rights, the patent holder must disclose the invention in the patent. Without an agreement in place to state the ownership of an invention that is patented, the following applies: ...
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare), New Delhi. Introduction It is widely believed that pharmaceutical patents promote monopoly and thus significantly delay the entry of generics. Due to the lack of competition, the prices of medicines rise. The current system of product patent protection due to the harmonized global intellectual property rights laws are widely considered to be a major barrier for the access to medicines, especially in the developing countries.1 [1] Until such a time the poor and middle income countries became signatories to the World Trade Organization s 1995 Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) agreement, they had the freedom and flexibility to design patent laws that prohibited product patents. With the enforcement of the TRIPS agreement in 2005, developing countries have been compelled to modify and introduce TRIPS-compliant national patent laws. The TRIPS Agreement harmonized the life of patent to a minimum of 20 years besides mandating the granting of ...
Justice Samuel Alito does not mince words on this topic in rejecting the claim that trademarks are a form of government speech, writing: If the federal registration of a trademark makes the mark government speech, the Federal Government is babbling prodigiously and incoherently. He goes on to list trademarked statements that would represent dubious advice on the part of the government (such as make.believe by Sony), and juxtaposes marks with contradictory statements (like Capitalism Is Not Moral, Not Fair, Not Freedom and Capitalism Ensuring Innovation). Alito explains how the world of trademarks cannot be likened to other forms of government speech in which the state seeks to promote a specific message, such as the encouragement of beef-product consumption at issue in Johanns v. Livestock Marketing Association. It is noteworthy that all the justices joined this part of the opinion.. As Alitos opinion recognizes, the claim that trademarks by necessity bear a form of government ...

Over the last few years, the Supreme Court has taken a renewed interest in patent law. After years of ignoring the issue, and leaving it in the hands of the appeals court for the federal circuit (CAFC -- which was established, in part, to hear all patent appeals), the Supreme Court has taken to regularly smacking down the CAFC, and telling it that it doesnt understand basic patent law. Its now happened again. The court has reversed yet another CAFC decision, this time concerning who has the burden of proving infringement. This was as case involved Medtronic filing for a declaratory judgment that it did not infringe on someone elses patent (Medtronic, it should be noted, has a history of being quite a patent bully itself at times). A district court had noted that the patent holder, in this case the Mirowski Family Ventures, has the burden of proof on showing infringement. CAFC said that since Medtronic brought the declaratory judgment suit that it was actually Medtronics burden to prove that ...

The IPO and EPO have already ruled that DABUS, which was created by AI researcher Stephen Thaler, cannot be listed as an inventor based on similar legal interpretations. The USPTO asked the public for opinions on the topic last November. The Artificial Inventor Project is not arguing that an AI should own a patent, just that it should be listed as an inventor, MIT Technology Review notes. It argues that this might be necessary when hundreds or even thousands of employees have contributed code to a system, like IBMs Watson supercomputer, before the computer itself then goes on to solve a problem. If no human was involved closely enough with an invention to claim credit for it, then the group fears it may be impossible to patent it at all.. The project also ...
The ambassadors to the World Trade Organization from Brazil and India on Tuesday charged that other WTO members had no grounds to block legitimate shipping of generic medicines on the basis of potential intellectual property rights conflicts in the transit country and said recent cases of doing so in the Netherlands call into question WTO rules. The concern was supported by 17 other developing country governments at Tuesdays WTO General Council meeting.. Meanwhile, the ambassadors of Brazil, India, the European Union and Switzerland are expected to meet on Wednesday, according to an official, to discuss ways to start negotiating within the WTO on a proposal to extend higher name protection wines and spirits enjoy to geographical indications on other products, and on a proposal to amend WTO rules on intellectual property rights to require the disclosure of origin of genetic material in patent applications. Over 100 WTO members have called for these topics to be negotiated but a smaller number ...
There were two interesting trademark judgments in Mauritius recently. Although these judgments do not contain any groundbreaking law, they do highlight how keen the Mauritian authorities are to attract foreign investment. Part of this process seems to involve making trademark protection and enforcement easily accessible. One way of doing that is to follow foreign precedents closely, particularly UK and European authorities.. The judgments in the cases of Shangri-La Tours Ltd v Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited and the Controller of Industrial Property Office, October 14 2019, were decisions of the Industrial Property Tribunal. They involved applications by a local company to cancel various trademark registrations belonging to a foreign company. The Tribunal found against the local company, refusing to cancel the registrations of the foreign company. A number of aspects are worth noting:. ...

We study the extent to which a countrys strength of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection mediates knowledge spillovers from Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Following the opposing views in the IPR debate, we propose a negative effect of IPR strength on unintentional horizontal (intra-industry) knowledge diffusion. Using a unique firm-level dataset of large, publicly traded firms in 22 (mostly) developed countries, we find partial support for these expectations. Strong IPR indeed reduces horizontal knowledge diffusion, while it stimulates backward (to suppliers) knowledge diffusion. Somewhat unexpectedly however, we also find that forward (to customers) knowledge diffusion decreases with IPR strength. In general, and in line with earlier literature, the results regarding backward knowledge diffusion are most robust to changes in model specification. Our results contribute to the debate regarding the desirability of strengthening national IPR systems, and suggest that local firms might indeed

Abstract: Special 301 of the 1988 Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act grants the United States Trade Representative the authority to target countries that do not adequately protect intellectual property rights. The USTR has been investigating and negotiating with several countries, including Thailand, in an effort to improve intellectual property protections for American products. As a result, Thailand has instituted noteworthy changes in its copyright and patent laws. This Comment recommends that the USTR continue to negotiate with Thailand, and that the USTR continue to exert pressure on Thailand. This Comment also suggests that because Thailand has taken steps to improve protection of intellectual property rights, the USTR should refrain from imposing any trade sanctions under Special 301 against Thailand at this time ...

Intellectual property resulting from the discovery of specific DNA mutations linked to a rare and often deadly type of adolescent liver cancer, fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, has been dedicated to the public by the institutions that made the discovery, The Rockefeller University (Rockefeller) and the New York Genome Center (NYGC). The institutions made this unusual move in the hope of accelerating progress toward the delivery of diagnostics and therapies for the devastating disease..

Brazilian President Lula has adopted a measure to enable the suspension of Brazils obligations to protect intellectual property rights from the United States, which follows a World Trade Organization ruling of US non-compliance with WTO rules, according to an unofficial translation of the provisional Brazilian measure. The dispute arose between the United States and Brazil over US cotton subsidies. An August 2009 WTO arbitration report gave Brazil the right to use trade countermeasures against the US, and in specific circumstances to suspend intellectual property rights obligations (IPW, WTO/TRIPS, 7 September 2009).. The provisional measure, available here, was signed on 10 February by Lula. It has the force of law and was done to ensure that from a domestic legal standpoint, no problems could be encountered when IP rights are suspended according to the WTO ruling, according to a Brazilian source.. Article 2, item 4 of the measure gives a list of IP rights, such as patents, copyrights and ...

Co-authored by Adriana Benedict and Tiffany Jang. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and European Patent Office (EPO) have been granting patents on isolated human DNA since the early 1980s. Many countries have followed their lead.. More than three decades later, the U.S. has become the first country to reject the patent eligibility of isolated DNA following last weeks Supreme Court ruling in Assn of Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics. Will its opinion have any global ripple effects?. The USPTO has promoted harmonization with its standards of patentability through training and technical assistance programs since 1985. USPTO patent standards have spread in part due to a partnership established between the USPTO, EPO and Japanese Patent Office (JPO) in 1983. As noted by the Australian Law Reform Commission, in 1988, these Trilateral Offices issued a joint statement explaining that. Purified natural products are not regarded as products of nature or discoveries because they do not in ...
