WILL YOUR COMMUNITY DESIGN BE VALID IN UK THIS YEAR?


Vanessa Bélec, Patent Attorney at Fenix Legal, with a Master of Laws from the Southampton Solent University in UK, guides you through the necessary steps.


After the Transition Period that ended 31 December 2020,  all Registered Community Designs (RCD) that are registered and published before that date are automatically re-registered under the UK registered design right (UK RDR) at no cost. However, pending RCD-applications will have to be re-filed within nine months in order to maintain e.g. filing date of the previous application.


If your design is not registered but enjoys an unregistered Community Design right protection, then you need to check if you really need UK-design protection and even consider registering if possible. Depending on where the design was first disclosed or first marketed, the type of design, who you are or if you need a long lasting protection period, there are different types of unregistered design rights available to suit everyone.




KOMMER DIN EU-DESIGN FORTFARANDE GÄLLA I STORBRITANNIEN I ÅR (2021)?


Vanessa Bélec, Patent Attorney på Fenix Legal, med en Master of Laws från brittiska Southampton Solent University, guidar dig genom de olika stegen. 


Efter övergångsperioden som slutade den 31 december 2020, alla registrerade EU-design (RCD) som är registrerade och publicerade före detta datum blir utan avgifter automatiskt återregistrerade under den brittiska designrätten, ”UK registered design right (UK RDR). Dock,  pågående RCD-ansökningar måste återregisteras inom nio månader för att bibehålla tex.  det ursprunliga ansökningsdatumet.


Om din design inte är registrerad men skyddas av en oregistrerad EU-rätt,  då behöver du titta lite närmare om du verkligen behöver brittiskt designskydd och även fundera om eventuell registrering av din design. 


Beroende på var din design visades första gången eller var den var först marknadsförd,  typen av design,  vem du är eller om du behöver ett längre skydd så finns det olika typer av oregistrerad designrätt tillgängliga för att anpassa alla.

"SWEDEN" - A TRADEMARK SUFFERING FROM THE CORONA-EFFECT


Sweden is a well-known trademark with good reputation both for Swedish companies and the country as such, but also for foreign companies all over the world that like to give their goods and services a “Swedish touch”. But what is the corona-effect on this kind of marks, and how to deal with it?


Petter Rindforth explains further in the latest edition of The Trademark Lawyer

    

THE INNOVATION QUARTET CHANGING THE WORLD


The Hanseatic League of Science (HALOS), is a new EU project in the union’s Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerak (ÖKS) inter-regional cooperation programme, which started February 1, 2019. HALOS is a centre for integrated, world-leading life science innovation and research, led by the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University, Sweden.

 

Maria Zamkova tells more about HALOS, and why the result of life science innovation and research is necessary and long-awaited for all final consumers and patients worldwide, together with patent and similar IP protection as a guarantee that the product is reliable, in her article in the World IP Review of May/june 2019.

Despite COVID-19 - PRV maintains its international training programs


The Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV) has for nearly 30 years co-operated with the Swedish government agency for development cooperation – Sida.


Although the COVID-19 pandemic has closed the doors for international travel and physical meetings, the pandemic also shows that it may be even more important than ever to keep up the development and protection of intellectual property rights, in order to find solutions to medical problems, develop the general industry and improving living conditions.

 

Maria Zamkova reports in WIPR Issue 2/2021 on the ongoing International Training Programs, and how we all can learn from that in order to secure a healthy future based on well-used intellectual properties.

EUIPO's CF Similarity tool: Useful or confusing?


All Lawyers, independent or representing the trademark owner or a claimed infringing party, has to deal with the question of similarity of goods or services related to a specific trademark.


One opportunity is to seek assistance from the EUIPO collaborative filtering similarity tool.

 

Petter Rindforth describes the risks and possibilities in WIPR Issue 1/2021:

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.






SWEDEN - THE BEST PLACE FOR LIFE SCIENCE INNOVATION


The life science industry in Sweden is very active and innovative. Maria Zamkova of Fenix Legal presents the mechanisms for this success in an article published in the March/April 2019 Patent Lawyer magazine.
