The Future of Design IP in China, Europe and the U.S.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), 1.04 million industrial design applications were filed worldwide in 2019, the last year for which data exists. This represents a 1.7% increase in the number of design filings worldwide over 2018.

All geographical regions experienced growth in the number of design applications between 2009 and 2019, with North America (+6.7%) and Asia (+6.1%) seeing the largest average increases, followed by Oceania (+3%) and Europe (+1.6%).

Usually where there is an increase in the number of new applications, litigation follows.  However, after studying the landscaping of design lawsuits over the past decade, divergent trends were identified. First, design litigation has been skyrocketing in China throughout various industries. Second, design litigation has been constantly declining in both Europe and the United States, despite the fact that both centers for fashion and automotive design.

The dichotomy of design IP in China compared to Europe or the United States is striking. The litigation landscape data raises the question: what is the future of design in mature IP jurisdictions, such as Europe and the US, but also in new and emerging markets, such as China? Are design asset owners taking full benefit of their IP and how should their strategies improve?

On March 4, 2021, Gene Quinn, President, Founder & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc, twice named on the Global Top 50 Most Influential People in IP, will discuss this shift in design IP rights and litigation. Gene will be joined by David Marques from Darts-ip, and Niccolò Ferretti from Nunziante Magrone, and Tracy-Gene Durkin from Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein, & Fox.

SEP Litigation Trends and Licensing Realities

In order for the full potential and promise of autonomous vehicles to be recognized, it will be critical for automakers to create vehicles that communicate with each other in real time, without lag. However, there are many obstacles to overcome before standardization can truly be achieved, not the least of which is the establishment of new business models.

While there are a number of high-profile legal confrontations and licensing standoffs capturing the auto industry in a quagmire of uncertainty, it hardly suffers this predicament alone. The Internet of Things, for example, which connects security systems, heating and lighting systems, washers and dryers, kitchen appliances, and more, will require increased interoperability and communication bandwidth if it continues to grow as predicted.

With such staggering commercialization opportunity due to demonstrated technological advancement come patents— a lot of patents – mostly standard essential patents (SEPs). When there are a lot of patents together with seemingly limitless market potential, litigation abounds— a lot of litigation.

Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and Founder of IPWatchdog.com, on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, at 12 pm EST, for a wide-ranging conversation about SEP litigation trends, forum shopping, licensing, and more. Joining the conversation will be Clemens Heusch, Head of Global Litigation for Nokia, David L. Cohen, from Kidon IP, a well-known SEPs expert and former Chief IP Officer for Vringo, and Tim Pohlmann, CEO of IPlytics.

The Online Brand Enforcement Imperative

The upcoming ICANN meeting provides a renewed focus on the UDRP and cybersquatting

Businesses and consumers are relying more heavily on the internet than ever before and with people spending more time online, cybersquatters are finding a target-rich environment. As a result, UDRP case filings, a potent weapon in brand enforcement, have accelerated.

Against the backdrop of remote work, living and learning, the upcoming ICANN meeting takes on renewed relevance as attendees examine internet policy, including the results of ICANN’s policy review for UDRP filings.

On Thursday, March 11, 2021, at 12pm EDT, join Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, twice named one of the top 50 most influential people in the IP world, for a wide-ranging conversation focusing on the upcoming ICANN meeting, the scope of ICANN’s UDRP and the UDRP administrative process, and the implications for intellectual property and brand protection professionals. Joining Gene for this discussion will be two distinguished experts on UDRP, Brian Beckham of WIPO and Doug Isenberg of GigaLaw, as well as Fred Felman of Appdetex, whose background as a brand protection practitioner provides real-world insights.

In addition to addressing questions from the audience, the panel will discuss:

  • Current brand abuse networks and how they are operating today.
  • The rise of cybersquatting and associated brand abuse.
  • Why privacy regulations in Europe have made tracking cybersquatters more difficult.
  • How these developments have impacted UDRP filings and cases.

In the fast-moving world of technology, those in the day-to-day IP operations end of businesses must find efficient ways to do their jobs better.

Similari is an Israeli start-up company that has pioneered an AI-based patent data analytics platform that enables technology trend analysis monitoring on an ongoing basis. Analyze data quicker and find technology trends faster using their machine learning algorithms and social-media-like newsfeed display, that allows you to like/dislike patents or classifications to improve saved searches.

Join Gene Quinn, the founder of IPWatchdog.com, on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at 12pm EST, for a free webinar conversation on how technology trend analysis can augment ongoing research efforts to stay abreast of technology markets.

We will take a look at the following industries:

  1. Electric vehicles, specifically battery technology;
  2. Autonomous Vehicles; and
  3. Graphic User Interfaces and Infotainment.
