IPBASICS.ORG IS LAUNCHED

LESS IS MORE WHEN IT COMES TO UNDERSTANDING IP RIGHTS

When it comes to understanding intellectual property rights at least one organization has come to believe that less is more. 

A fresh approach to learning why IP rights exist and who they benefit was introduced today by the Center for Intellectual Property Understanding, a non-profit. The CIPU-curated portal makes it easy for everybody to attain basic IP knowledge.

Viewers of all ages and backgrounds can begin to grasp the major IP concepts of sharing and protection through IPBasics.org. Site content features examples and explanations of the four types of intellectual property rights, including NIKE, LEGOS, iPhone, and the Beyonce catalog and products.

Upcoming seminar by IPR University Center “SEPs – what should the EU do?”

Bowman Heiden, Jorge L. Contreras, Steve Faraji, Sonja London, and Matthias Zigann will be speaking at the upcoming seminar by IPR University Center “SEPs – what should the EU do?”

How should the EU facilitate the licensing of SEPs? This seminar addresses the challenges that SEP licensing currently faces in the EU and beyond and the means by which the EU could seek to resolve the issues through its policy actions. It evaluates the current initiatives put forward and considers how the European Commission, national courts and the CJEU can facilitate the licensing of SEPs in a way that secures innovators incentives to innovate and effective access to SEPs by implementers.
