Good morning, readers. Summer is in full swing here in New York City and we couldn’t be happier after the past winter. We invite you to take a look at the latest foreign filing headlines for the week of June 16th:
- You should take those FIFA logos off of your Twitter profile now, as they are sending cease and desist letters to users throughout the World Cup.
- As most people have heard by now, the USPTO has rescinded the Washington Redskins trademark. This article looks at how much it would cost for the team to change their name.
- This quiz is tougher than you’d think: play « guess that invention » now to see if you can figure out the purpose of various 18th and 19th century patent models.
- Last week Tesla opened up its patent portfolio to an unprecedented « good faith » use by competitors.
Please follow us on Twitter @inoviaIP for all relevant patent updates throughout the week. We’ll see you back here next week for another roundup.
