Course Aims:

This podcast is aimed at those interested in intellectual property and technology law developments. It examines a number of recent developments and their significance for IP rights holders including the key provisions of the Defamation Act 2013, whether linking to protected content on free websites constitutes an unauthorised communication to the public and the relationship between online databases and dedicated meta search engines that re-utilise their content. It also sets out the CJEU’s decision in Rivella v OHIM (Case T-170/11) which provides helpful clarification with regard to the ‘genuine use’ of international trade marks.
