Book notice: The Protection of Intellectual Property Rights under International Investment Law


The Protection of Intellectual Property Rights under International Investment Law is the new book written by Simon Klopschinski (Rospatt Osten Pross), Christopher Gibson (Suffolk University Law School), and Henning Grosse Ruse-Khan (University of Cambridge, King’s College).

The monograph analyses “the standards of treatment and protection enshrined in IIAs [international investment agreements] for IP rights, with reference to topics such as the fragmentation of international law; investor-host-state dispute resolution; investors and investments; relative standards of treatment (such as most favoured nation); absolute standards of treatment (such as fair and equitable treatment); and expropriation”.

The book was published by Oxford University Press and can be ordered here.

The book launch will be held online on 27 May 2021. The introduction will be provided by Joseph Straus (Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition), followed by presentations by the authors. The commentators are Rochelle Dreyfuss (NYU School of Law), Peter Yu (Texas A&M University School of Law) and Christophe Bondy (Steptoe & Johnson).

Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual 2021


Como cada año, el 26 de abril se celebrará el Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual.

Con el objetivo de “fomentar una mayor comprensión general de la PI”, la fecha fue elegida por los estados miembros de la Organización Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual (OMPI) en el año 2000, de tal suerte que coincidiera con la fecha de la entrada en vigor del Convenio de la OMPI (26 abril de 1970).

El tema de este año es “La PI y las pymes: Para que las ideas lleguen al mercado”.

En este contexto, la OMPI ha señalado que las pymes “representan alrededor del 90% de las empresas del mundo, dan empleo aproximadamente al 50% de la fuerza de trabajo mundial y generan hasta el 40% de la renta nacional en muchas economías emergentes”.

La OMPI ha enfatizado que “el Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual 2021 es una oportunidad para descubrir la manera en que las herramientas del sistema de PI —a saber, las marcas, los derechos sobre dibujos y modelos, el derecho de autor, las patentes, los secretos comerciales, las indicaciones geográficas y muchas más— pueden ayudar a que sus ideas lleguen al mercado”.

De igual manera, la Organización ha indicado que el “Día Mundial de la PI 2021 también pone de relieve la función central que la OMPI y las oficinas nacionales y regionales de PI de todo el mundo desempeñan a la hora de crear condiciones favorables para que las pymes impulsen la innovación y la creatividad, faciliten la recuperación económica y generen empleo”.

La página web dedicada al Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual ya se encuentra disponible, la cual contiene entre otras secciones, las siguientes:


Se puede enviar aquí la información sobre los eventos para que sean incluidos en el calendario virtual del Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual.

Asimismo, los videos producidos para difundir las campañas en el marco de las celebraciones, pueden enviarse a la OMPI para que sean compartidos en los canales de la Organización.

¡No olvides revisar los eventos incluidos en IPTango para conmemorar el Día Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual!

Peru: INDECOPI announced some results derived from the agreement to protect IPRs in the digital environment signed with Mercado Libre


The Peruvian National Institute for the Defense of Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) announced some results derived from the agreement to protect IPRs in the digital environment signed with Mercado Libre (MELI).

As Juan Cichero (Head of Brand Protection at MELI) highlighted in the interview held with IPTango last year, the e-commerce platform “provided INDECOPI with [their] monitoring and reporting tool, but unfortunately, due to the … COVID-19 lockdown, some aspects of the joined efforts had to be delayed. However, [MELI trusted] that with the normalization of the INDECOPI procedures, the enforcement [would] resume”.

Indeed, the enforcement resumed in 2020. Thus, in a press release recently published, INDECOPI indicated that 265 listings were removed from Mercado Libre in light of the cooperation agreement with the platform. Out of these, 152 ads offered counterfeit products that posed a risk to consumers’ health and safety, such as electronic devices, masks, and toys. Meanwhile, 113 listings offered beverages with the protected appellation of origin “Pisco.

In addition to this, as part of MELI´s proactive measures, 327 warnings were issued to brand owners, so they could review the ads and report the infringement of their IP rights when it was applicable.

Considering the results obtained, INDECOPI and MELI signed an addendum to extend the cooperation agreement for a further twelve months.

Read here the press release published by INDECOPI (in Spanish).

Peru: strategic support to inventions and sciences

 

While the pandemic keeps hitting hard all markets in the world, the Peruvian national IPO, INDECOPI, reported so many news in the month of February 2021 that reassures that ‘the show must go on’.


There were plenty of good news related to patents. For instance, the research and development done by national universities amounted to 213 patent applications last year. There were in total 37 universities that applied for patents, 10 of which applied for patents for the first time.
INDECOPI reports that this is the result of the work carried out by its department the Directorate of Inventions and New Technologies (DIN). The department leads, creates and consolidates a culture of patents within Peruvian universities. There are other programs running that provides support on innovation such as “the National Network of Technology and Innovation Support Centers (CATI Network); the 'Virtual Training and Accompaniment Course for the Identification and Registration of Intellectual Property in Universities', carried out in collaboration with the Program PMESUT of the Ministry of Education, the National Contest of Inventions, the Patent Program (Modality Academic and Research Centers); the Free Talks and Training Program providing direct advice for the preparation of Regulations and Intellectual Property Strategies; among others.” (more info here)


‘Women in Sciences’: the INDECOPI reports that the participation of Peruvian woman in inventions and research is growing. In 2020, 36% of patent applications were filed by, or where participation came from, female inventors. In 2020, the INDECOPI run a special competition 'Patents against COVID-19' and received 313 projects, with 45 winners of which 21 have already obtained their patents -- 28% belong to women. (more info here). The cherry on the top comes from 28 Peruvian women who triumphed in the 13th International Women's Invention Exposition in South Korean – KIWI 2020. The 28 inventors presented 18 inventions related to health, the environment and biodiversity, construction and architecture, as well as creations related to the use of waste from agribusiness. They proudly  received 5 gold, 8 silver, and 4 bronze medals as well as two special awards.  (more info here). To hear from them and their inventions, check their videos here (Spanish) – I learned about the e-nose that is used to assess ‘Pisco’ (spirit drink), which is a denomination of origin in Peru.


The INDECOPI together with the National Council of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation (CONCYTEC) have for the second year, launched a ‘patent fund’ to finance its registration at international level --  up to 25,000 Peruvian soles (approx. 5,686 euros). Applications are accepted till April 14, 2021. To learn more about this fund click here and here.  


Finally, Peru has a virtual ‘window shopping’ for inventions known as the 'Peruvian Patent Marketplace' - here. There are 237 national creations “seeking to get local and international business partners and business opportunities to enter the market”. There are so many that I felt truly like ‘shopping’. I was curious to learn about the ‘portable disinfection device for disposable facial mask’.  The reality is that many countries do have a shortage of new disposable masks, be it for the health personnel or society in general. The inventions is an alternative for reusing disposable mask by means of UV Radiation, and resulting in a mask that can be used up to 10 times more. I would like to extend the aim to all disposable mask to have this process reducing the quantity of mask ending in the bin - sadly sometimes in the roads, pavements, rivers and oceans.

Call for Chapter *Intangible Cultural Heritage and Intellectual property*

 

 


*Intangible Cultural Heritage and Intellectual property*

If you have expertise in these areas, I would love you to contribute to the book Transboundary Heritage and Intellectual Property Law: Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage (Routledge, 2021)

You will be invited to write a chapter (8,000 words -- all inclusive: footnotes and bibliography). Drafts are due by the 31st of April 2021 (for internal peer-review purposes). If you would like to co-author the piece with someone, this is also welcome.

To maximize the potential impact of the volume in connecting transboundary heritage studies more firmly to intellectual property law, I kindly ask you to consider a chapter on ‘ownership’ bearing in mind that the book is interdisciplinary, so contemplate a reader that has no law background. I ask you to reflect on the following matters when drafting your chapter:

1. Concepts of property rights, possession rights and responsibilities; including collective rights, and control access. This should focus on key legal concepts.

2. Desires for access and control over traditional knowledge, and genetic resources.

3. Traditional proprietary system and how they operate in different contexts, for instance: civil law, common law, national law, international law, and customary law.

4. How does the law operate in practice in relation to transboundary intangible cultural heritage?

5. What are the flaws of the system? Suggestions to improve are welcome.

6. Please provide short examples if possible or you can develop the chapter on a case study.

Finally, if you would like to contribute, please submit an abstract of 400 words to me by the 8th of March, 2021. This will allow the editor to give some guidance at the early stages of preparation of the manuscript. In your abstract, please include the central thesis and the structure. Also, include a short biography and contact details.
