11th edition of the ICC Intellectual Property Roadmap released
ICC has launched the 11th edition of its flagship intellectual property (IP) publication ICC Intellectual Property Roadmap: Current and Emerging Issues for Business and Policymakers.
Presenting the new edition in Geneva today, during the inaugural
Licensing Executives Society International's (LESI) Global Technology Impact
Forum (GTIF), David Koris, Chair of the ICC Commission on Intellectual
Property, said: "The IP Roadmap has undergone extensive updates to reflect key
developments in the IP policy landscape. It is an invaluable tool to bring
policymakers and business leaders worldwide up to date on IP-related issues,
from measures to control copyright and trademark infringement on the Internet
to the mediation of IP disputes."
Most sections of the 11th
edition Roadmap have been extensively updated to highlight IP developments
arising from technological, economic, political and social changes. These
include the decision to open up the generic Top Level Domain name space,
measures to control copyright and trademark infringement on the Internet, and
efforts to address the high costs and lengthy proceedings necessary to obtain
patents in multiple jurisdictions (such as more intensive cooperation between
patent offices, further steps in the EU initiative to create a unitary patent
and patent litigation system, and reform bringing the US patent system one
step closer to other patent systems worldwide).
developments, with implications for the life sciences, include the conclusion
of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing in relation to genetic
resources, and the protection of biosimilar drugs in the EU and the US.
