Friday Foreign Filing Roundup

Good morning, readers. Memorial Day always marks the unofficial beginning of summer here in New York and we couldn’t be happier to put the long, cold, and snowy winter behind us.  Please take a look at the latest updates in foreign patent filing for the week of May 19th:

  • In recent patent troll news, legislation protecting companies against non-practicing entities was killed on Wednesday in the Senate. 
  • In a surprising turn of events, Apple and Samsung are giving truce talks another shot in an effort to settle their legal differences outside of the courtroom.
  • South Korea will now participate in donating funds to protect intellectual property. Korea will participate in funding many of the leading projects that are undertaken by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
  • inovia news: The inovia team got back from Hong Kong last week from INTA’s 2014 Annual Meeting. Read more about the trip here.  

Have a great weekend! Meet us back here next week for more updates.  Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter @inoviaIP.
