Press Release: The mere storage by Amazon, in the context of its online marketplace (‘Amazon- Marketplace’), of goods which infringe trade mark rights does not constitute an infringement by Amazon of those trade mark rights

A company which, on behalf of a third-party seller, stores goods without being aware that they infringe trade mark rights does not itself use that trade mark, so long as it does not pursue, like the seller, the aim of offering the goods for sale or putting them on the market.

Webinar: IP in Biotechnology (3 December 2020)

The term biotechnology summarizes all technologies relating to living systems and organisms as a basis for developing and manufacturing technological applications that use biological systems. The field of biotechnology is regarded as one of the most innovative fields in terms of developing future applications.

The protection of biotech inventions by appropriate Intellectual Property Rights is extremely important due to the close link between such innovations and the development of a product. Thus, “Patent Off” for instance has to be avoided.

Webinar: Technology-transfer 34: Artificial Intelligence and Its Impact on Copyright and Patent Laws (28 February 2020)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already capable of creating literary, artistic and musical works as well as technical inventions. As machines have quickly learned to mimic human creativity and inventiveness, the intellectual property (IP) world has entered into AI-driven unchartered territory. Are and should AI-created works and inventions be protected by copyright and patents? How do we answer the question of authorship, inventorship and ownership?

The webinar will then shift to the questions of whether and to what extent the use of data fed into the system, for example to train the algorithms, may amount to copyright or patent infringement, or may in certain circumstances be exempted under fair use, fair dealing, private use or similar doctrines. Possible legal regimes dealing with machine produced works and inventions which are alternatives to copyright and patent protection, including public domain scenarios and sui generis systems, will be examined.
