2021 magazines


WIPR Issue 1 2021

The first issue of World IP Review for 2021 features some of the biggest stories in IP. In this packed edition we shine the spotlight on video hearings at the European Patent Office, what US President Biden’s pick of Lina Khan as a commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission means for big tech, and whether the IP interests of SMEs can be a smokescreen for bigger corporate interests.

Elsewhere you can delve into China’s ‘guiding cases’, a controversial trademark case involving Amazon, and possible scenarios for the Unified Patent Court, plus an eclectic mix of jurisdiction reports from the world’s top IP lawyers.


WIPR Issue 2 2021

This issue leads with the copyright ‘case of the century’: Google v Oracle. We feature in-depth analysis of the ruling and the dissent that reveals why the court’s expansion of fair use has left some rights owners fearful.

Elsewhere we examine what the public fallout between Marks and Spencer and Aldi tells us about copying as a strategy, how Nike’s ‘Satan shoes’ case might have played out in the UK, and why Michael Jackson’s tax affairs have shone a spotlight on IP valuation.

Plus, look out for recent news highlights and a crop of useful jurisdiction reports from Sweden, Russia and China, among other countries.
