This seminar will provide an overview of recent IP developments in Europe, namely the state-of-play of the unitary patent (especially considering the imminent Brexit); the Trade Secrets Directive; the new Trademark Regulation; and the proposed Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market. Specific IP issues will be discussed in more detail and include the ground for refusal of registration due to functionality of the sign (based on both the new Trademark Regulation and the recent Rubik's cube case); Articles 11 and 13 of the proposed Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market (which refer to a new exclusive right for press publishers and to the use of protected content by information society service providers, respectively); and the right of communication to the public as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the European Union in relation to hyperlinking (especially in cases Svensson and GS Media).
