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.

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.

When you realize that someone is
trying to infringe your protected
patents it is necessary to act quickly
to minimize the damages. But when is the right time to act, and what is needed to reach quick decisions from the court? The Swedish Patent

In the September/October 2022 issue of The Patent Lawyer Magazine, Maria Zamkova of Fenix Legal evaluates two recent cases to offer advice for claiming preliminary and ex parte injunction for successfully protecting a patent even before the patent is granted.
