Tšnaiste in favour of postponing patent referendum to allow more time for 'proper preparation'
#UPC referendum is wrong.
It won't affect harmonisation of the registration and recognition of patents throughout the EU (thats the EPC and older agreements), nor will it ensure that Irish inventors have an easier and more cost-efficient way of protecting their inventions and their ideas (they can use the UPC and EPO already).

Given AVC (H.264 video) was first published in 2004, I'd assumed the patents would all be expired, or soon. But the licensing pool contains patents filed for in 2008, and I could find one filed in 2020.

Question for my European friends: In the U.S., people want design patents for disembodied designs in order to get around the Supreme Court's decision in Feist and the doctrine of fair use in copyright. What's the motivation in Europe? Just "more is more" or are there specific reasons? What arguments were made in supporting the changes to the EU design rules?

After failing to convince the USPTO to read the phrase "for an article of manufacture" out of 35 U.S.C. § 171, the bar appears to be plotting new ways to get design patents for disembodied designs.

Periodic reminder that, common parlance in other jurisdictions aside, the phrase "industrial designs" is a really bad fit when we're talking about the types of things design patents (and similar design rights) protect, as it is both over- and under-inclusive.

re: #ukpol #sicknote
😡: There are too many people off sick. What can we do?
👿: We could give the NHS doctors the pay-restoration they've asked for so that they don't all quit?
😡: But how would that make our corporate sponsors more wealthy?
👿: Ah, good point. Perhaps we can give billions of pounds to Crapita and ask them to assess the sick?
😡: Brilliant! But they have no expertise on the issue and no prior knowledge of any of the patents.
👿: No problem, we'll just tell them to find half those assessed are lying malingerers, you don't need expertise to do that.
😡: Brilliant, call the press, I'll do an announcement.

Based on the number of client alerts I'm seeing being issued about #LKQvGM, it is possible that more attorneys are thinking about design patents this week than ever before
