Global Intellectual Property

Intelligent protection

Defining and protecting your innovation and creativity is increasingly difficult and complex. Internet marketing and sophisticated counterfeiting operations are expanding risks and opportunities for IP holders, and inefficiencies in the international patent system are leading many to clamor for change.

At Baker & McKenzie, we understand new challenges in IP protection and can provide unique and global solutions. We see IP management as a strategic issue and have developed people, processes and technologies to promote sound and cost-effective stewardship of intellectual property. A leading global IP practice, we are trusted counsel to some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies and our over 400 IP timekeepers worldwide help manage and enforce the IP portfolios of more than 100 multinationals.

Welcome to the most recent edition of our Digital Media Alert - our take on the most interesting / important recent developments in the sector. The wave of copyright cases from the CJEU continues, with the court issuing its ruling in the long running Meltwater litigation, confirming that the copies made when internet browsing fall within the EU's temporary copies exception, and as such do not require authorisation, either express or implied, from the relevant copyright owner. In other developments, we look at the status of the new copyright exceptions in the UK, CJEU case law in the realm of private copying and levies, and report on the latest status of the UK's Consumer Rights Bill as well as guidance issued by the Commission on the Consumer Rights Directive. As ever, we can't cover everything, so we have picked the developments that we think are particularly important.
Baker & McKenzie is the only law firm to receive multiple listings in all four regions and rankings in 34 jurisdictions in the recent 2014 WTR 1000 Survey by the World Trademark Review.
Our latest edition of our Trade Marks Update discusses recent updates in UK and EU trade mark law, including the recent decisions of the CJEU concerning the registrability of a retail store layout as a trade mark, and the registrability of services bringing together other retail services. In our commentary section we focus on International Registrations, exploring the benefits of the Madrid System and the factors that should be taken into account when considering the system for global filing programmes.
