Den 28 maj 2024 höll Justitiedepartementet (Enheten för immaterialrätt och transporträtt) sitt referensgruppsmöte om internationella patentfrågor.


Maria Zamkova deltog från Fenix Legal och Svenska Patentombudsföreningen.


Departementet informerade främst om förhandlingslägen och centrala frågor i EU-kommissionens s.k. patentpaket (tvångslicenser,

tilläggsskydd och standardessentiella patent). Vidare informerades om förhandlingar inom WIPO (diplomatkonferens om genetiska resurser och traditionell kunskap) och WHO (pandemifördraget) samt gavs en uppdatering om det första året med ett enhetligt patentskydd i EU.

Online oral proceedings: are they here to stay?


Back in February 2021, the Swedish Association of Patent Attorneys (SPOF), representing private practice patent, trademark and design attorneys in Sweden, arranged a seminar with the Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV) on the topic “Oral proceedings online”. It was clear that if both parties agreed, oral proceedings could be held online. However, a question from the audience remained unanswered: What happens if one party wants to be online, and the other attends physically? How to ensure that both parties receive an equal assessment in the dispute? The question has now finally been answered by the Svea Court of Appeal, case No. T 7158-20.


Maria Zamkova of Fenix Legal explain the new Swedish praxis of arbitration in the pandemic, in the World IP Review Annual 2022 Jurisdiction Report. Read the full article:

INTA Annual Meeting 2024 -  at the birthplace of Coca-Cola


The International Trademark Association (INTA) had its 146th Annual Meeting May 18 – 22, 2024 in Atlanta, USA, the birthplace of one of the most well-known trade secrets ever: Coca-Cola. More than 10 000 Brand Owners, In-house Counsels, Government Officials, Academics  and IP professionals from 191 countries came together for seminars, working group meetings and meetings with IP experts. Maria Zamkova and Petter Rindforth participated on behalf of Fenix Legal. 

 

Our Fenix Legal team is actively involved in several working groups and committees, such as the Adjunct Professors, the ICANN Engagement Subcommittee of the INTERNET Committee, and the Panel of Trademark Mediators. 

 










Fenix Legal further participated in the TM5 and INTA workshop, where representatives from the National Intellectual Property Administration, PRC (CNIPA), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the Japan Patent Office (JPO), the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) exchanged information on trademark-related matters, presented their work with undertaking cooperative activities for their mutual benefit, and for the interests of their respective trademark filers and registrants, such as Fenix Legal.

 

Some other interesting topics during the meeting were participation in the Patent Professionals networking; a global panel discussion on Decoding Copyright in the Era of ChatGPT: Generative AI and Copyright Law; and a Comparative Review of Greenwashing Challenges in Common Law and Civil Law Jurisdictions - Consumer demand for environmentally friendly products and services is increasing exponentially and companies are making efforts to publicize their green credentials. This is a topic that Fenix Legal is continuously involved in, and has presented from a Swedish point of view in several articles in international IP magazines.

Geographical indications:

the history of the Swedish horse and knife


Since 1992 a special type of protection for wines, spirit drinks and other agricultural products and foodstuffs such as cheese has been available in the European Union. It is called geographical indications (GI).

 

On May 24, 2023, EU ambassadors confirmed an agreement reached between the Council Presidency and the European Parliament representatives on the proposal for a Regulation on geographical indication protection also for craft and industrial products. The new system aims to promote and protect cultural heritage and traditional know-how in Europe and is expected to cover as many as 800 jewellery, textile, lace, natural stone, cutlery, glass and porcelain products.

 

In the World IP Review, No 1 / 2023, Petter Rindforth of Fenix Legal  describes the new system and how two well-known Swedish examples  - the Dala Horse and the Mora Knife may or may register for this new protection.
