EIP will host an event for members of the IPSoc at our London office on 25 September.
IPSoc is a society dedicated to junior IP practitioners and organises a mixture of social and education events. The Autumn social is invite-only for IPSoc members and will feature a presentation by Justin Turner QC on "Injunctive Relief & Arrow Declarations in Patent Actions". It will be followed by drinks and networking.
Partner Claire Lehr, the head of EIP Brands practice, will be attending the 33rd MARQUES Annual Conference from 17-20 September in Dublin.
The theme for the conference is “Brands Confronting Change” and will address how brand owners and IP practitioners can navigate the changes brought on by developments in law, politics and technology.
Contact Claire to arrange a meeting.
AIPPI World Congress takes place from 15-18 September and we are looking forward to welcoming our friends from the international IP community to London.

Toshiba has become the first organisation to register a ‘motion’ trademark in the UK after submitting a multimedia file.
While it has been possible to register motion marks before, submissions were required to be illustrated graphically. Following changes to UK trademark law in January 2019 applicants can now submit their motion, hologram or sound trademark using a multimedia file.
Tim Moss, chief executive of the UK Intellectual Property Office, said: “Trademarks are likely to become increasingly innovative in the digital age, as organisations explore imaginative ways of reflecting their distinctive brand personalities using creative intellectual property.
“Under the amended trademark law, submission of motion marks, hologram trademarks and sound marks via multimedia format now enables examiners to see exactly what the creator of the mark intended.”
EIP will again be exhibiting at the UK’s biggest event for low carbon vehicle technologies – LCV.
LCV takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground on 4-5 September and features a technology exhibition and extensive seminar programme. EIP partners Richard Gordon-Brown and Paula Flutter, and associates Ritchie Daniel and Thomas Goodfellow will be available on the EIP stand to answer any IP queries.
