At the end of May 2020, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) announced the launch of WIPO PROOF - a new online business service that provides tamper-proof evidence of the existence at a point in time of any digital file, including data sets, in any format. Why is this significant? Well, now you can easily and cheaply safeguard your valuable intellectual work, such as a product design, an invention or research data from the earliest stage of its development.

Use of a trademark in a form differing from the one registered… always an issue and a trap for trademark owners to be aware of. But a new Common Practice just adopted in May 2020 by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) promises more guidance.

Turbulent times require innovative ideas and solutions. The difficult situation surrounding the Corona crisis is forcing countless companies to send their employees to their home office. We believe it is important to see this as an opportunity to use the time wisely and use some of the time for further education and training in the field of intellectual property (IP) rights. The 10 webinars spread over the year 2020 are partly aimed at beginners and partly at advanced learners and are held in German or English. All dates and registration options are listed below.

Turbulente Zeiten erfordern besondere Maßnahmen. Die schwierige Situation rund um die Corona-Krise zwingt unzählige Unternehmen dazu, ihre Mitarbeiter ins Homeoffice zu schicken. Darüber hinaus stagniert in vielen Firmen die Auftragslage. Wir denken, es ist wichtig, die Zeit sinnvoll zu nutzen, die sonst im hektischen Alltag häufig zu kurz kommen. Besonders am Herzen liegt uns hier Fortbildung, Weiterbildung und Schulung im Bereich der gewerblichen Schutzrechte (= Intellectual Property – oder kurz „IP“). Die 10 verschiedenen Webinare über das Jahr 2020 verteilt richten sich teils an Anfänger, teils an Fortgeschrittene und finden auf Deutsch oder Englisch statt. Alle Termine und Anmeldemöglichkeiten sind unten aufgelistet.

Corona. Not just a beer, a cigar or a white halo during a solar eclipse, but also one of a group of viruses that infect humans and can be responsible for serious respiratory diseases. Corona viruses are not new which makes it unbelievable, how fast the latest mutation has become a threat to our economy on a global basis. But any crisis should not just be seen as an obstacle, but also as a chance to review, think, improve, find solutions and move forward.
