Four-finger shape of KitKat not distinctive enough to be copyrighted, rules EU court 25.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
 A long-running legal battle between global chocolate giants over the shape of KitKat finger wafers was sent back to the EU's trademark office on Wednesday after judges dismissed appeals by both companies. The ruling by the European Court of Justice means the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) must review a 2012 decision to uphold Swiss-based Nestle's trademark on the shape of the four-finger chocolate-covered wafer biscuit over objections raised by Mondelez of the United States. The Luxembourg court found that Nestle had failed to show that consumers in enough EU countries recognised the shape as distinctive but also dismissed an appeal by Mondelez against some of the grounds for a lower EU court ruling in 2016 that had found the EUIPO was wrong to reject the U.S. firm's complaint. The outcome leaves open that the trademark agency could, while respecting the judges' ruling, take account of other evidence -- such as new proof the shape is distinctive to people in more countries -- and might preserve ...

Indexing Innovation Globally: Role of Law 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Last week, the Global Innovation Index 2018 was released. This index is sponsored by World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Cornell University, and INSEAD Business School. The purpose of this index is to understand innovation better and as to how it can help in economic and human development. According to this index, China has risen as one of the highly innovative economies of the world, which is quite surprising because it is very well known, and often raised by the developed world, that the intellectual property regime in China is extremely weak. Unfortunately at times, India is also clubbed with China as one of the weakest intellectual property regimes. However, India being a democratic country, committed to the rule of law, it can somehow try to convince the developed economies about its free and fair judiciary. Despite the reputation of the courts in India of being independent of the intervention and control of the government of the day, though quite slow in decision-making, developed ...

An ex-Apple engineer on Monday was charged with stealing secrets from a hush-hush self-driving car technology project days before he quit to go to a Chinese startup. Xiaolang Zhang was in custody for stealing trade secrets from the Apple project, according to a copy of the criminal complaint posted online. The charge is punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. "Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously," the California-based internet titan said in response to an AFP query. "We're working with authorities on this matter and will do everything possible to make sure this individual and any other individuals involved are held accountable for their actions." Zhang was hired by Apple in December of 2015 to be part of a team developing hardware and software for self-driving vehicles, a project that was a "closely-guarded secret," according to the complaint filed by the FBI. Zhang took paternity leave in the month of April, going with his family to ...

Huawei's Watch 3 could pack a pair of built-in earbuds, suggests new patent 4.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Huawei was granted a patent by The World Intellectual Property Organization for a wearable device storing a Bluetooth headset. The images used on the patent show a smartwatch, possibly revealing the brand's plans for a Huawei Watch 3. A smartwatch that houses earbuds would have its advantages: for starters, no more forgetting your headset, they'd always be waiting to take your calls or play music. But how can the two be combined in a wearable design? First spotted by LetsGoDigital, the patent doesn't suggest just one design but rather outlines multiple storage possibilities, including sliding them into cylinder compartments between the band and the watch face, on either side. This could work on a larger wrist, as it would likely result in a rather bulky case. The other option proposed is storing them on the underside of the wrist in a small container where a buckle would normally rest. The earbuds could also be designed to be water-resistant, according to tech blog Engadget, which notes that there could ...

Experts stress on integrating Intellectual Property Rights in govt policies 27.6.2018 DNA: India
Integrating Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) with government policies and adopting the right strategies are keys to make the country an IP leader, experts said at an orientation programme on National IPR Policy on Tuesday. Yashwant Dev Panwar, head of Patent Facilitating Centre at Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC), said in his address that India has come a long way in the last 20 years as far as IPR protection is concerned, but a lot more ground needs to be covered. "We need to see how to build on this. There needs to be integration of IPR in government policies. Better integration of thought processes is needed," Panwar said at the workshop at Science City, which was attended by participants from Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Goa, MP, and other states. Panwar pointed out that in spite of the progress made in terms of IP awareness, the number of patents filed in India is about 45,000 a year, as compared with 4.5 lakh in China.
