Mr. and Ms. AI – Sweden prepares for inventors that are Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI), the area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and reacts like humans, has for a long time been an interesting topic for both writers and scientists, with Talos of Crete, and Pygmalion, in the Greek mythology, to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) and the first working AI program in 1951 – Ferranti Mark 1 for checkers playing.

The modern AI is, however, no science fiction, or only for entertainment.


Maria Zamkova discusses the future of patenting AI in Sweden and the likelihood of AI being named inventor in future patent applications, in the Sept/Oct 2021 Patent Lawyer Magazine.

BREXIT: British companies are coming to settle in Sweden

The presence of British companies registered in Sweden becomes more and more apparent for each day. There are many speculations trying to justify the reason for such a presence in Sweden. A probable reason seems to be that in sight of a non-deal Brexit, British companies are trying to avoid being placed in the same category as a “third country” and as such avoid being subject to national rules of each EU-country which may lead to huge disadvantages in a number of aspects.

Vanessa Bélec, Patent Attorney at Fenix Legal, explains what to expect – with examples from Swedish law and court decisions - in the latest edition of The Patent Lawyer.
