Friday Foreign Filing Roundup

Happy Foreign Filing Friday!  We’ve been perusing the latest headlines in patenting news for your consideration.  Please take a look at the most recent updates in the IP world for the week of August 5th: 

  • China is pushing to simplify the trademark process and strengthen trademark rights with the Second Draft to China’s Trademark Law.
  • A recent survey published by AUTM demonstrates that university IP activity is directly contributing to US economic recovery. 
  • Recently, law enforcement officials in Hong Kong and Guangdong met to improve how they handled IP-related cases.  Some of their goals included promoting and developing IP trade, as well as holding IP seminars to promote knowledge and awareness. 
  • Our friends at IPWatchdog recently published an article explaining how important the power of color is when discussing patent design.
