Friday Foreign Filing Roundup

Friday Foreign Filing Roundup

Good afternoon!  I think it’s safe to say that winter is officially behind us and we couldn’t be happier at the inovia headquarters.  Check out the latest foreign filing updates we have been collecting from the past week:

  •  A unanimous decision by the US Supreme Court now makes it easier to win patent litigation legal fees. 
  • Now that’s something you don’t see every day! In a surprising twist, a shoe maker sues a patent troll.
  • China’s new trademark law came into effect yesterday, strengthening the legal protection of trademarks and intellectual property.
  • ZTE, a leading Chinese smartphone manufacturer, aims to increase its presence in international markets through increasing its number of patents.

That’s all for this week! Please check back in next Friday and follow us on Twitter @inoviaIP for more updates.
