Friday Foreign Filing Roundup

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  • As most people have heard by now, the USPTO has rescinded the Washington Redskins trademark.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.
