With the increasing reliance on technology in our daily lives, the risk of cyber-attacks, data breaches and intellectual property theft has risen exponentially. As a result, the legal landscape surrounding patents, trademarks, copyrights and other digital assets has become increasingly complex, requiring innovative strategies to manage the risks.

One of those new strategies is the Unified Patent Court (UPC) which starts from June 1st, 2023. The entire European region will have a uniform patent protection system, where any disagreements will be resolved in legal proceedings at the Court, and this will apply to all member states involved. In this digital age, protecting one's personal data and digital assets has become more critical than ever.

By networking within the industry, businesses can become more informed on strategies and the latest technological advancements in legal IP to find solutions for key issues. That’s why we are excited to launch our World Legal IP Summit in Berlin, Germany on the 8th & 9th of June 2023.

Let’s take a look at some top trends for 2023 and beyond:

IP Challenges with Digital Assets

The rise of digital assets such as cryptocurrency, digital art, and virtual realities has brought about new intellectual property challenges. One of the most significant issues is the ease of copying and distributing digital assets without the owner's permission. Another challenge is the difficulty of identifying the rightful owner of a digital asset, as ownership can be easily transferred without a clear history trail.

At our upcoming Summit, we will have the opportunity to explore mitigating increased intellectual property risks from brands such as ASML, Beaubourg Avocats, Sky Italia, Philips, EY and Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, LLP.

Technological Advancements for Protecting Data

As the value of intellectual property continues to rise, so does the need for advanced data protection technologies. Fortunately, there are several technologies that can help safeguard intellectual property data. Some of those advancements are the rising use of encryption, the use of biometric authentication, and advancements in AI and ML enabling more sophisticated methods to protect data from unauthorized access and theft.

At our upcoming World Legal IP Summit, speakers from Microsoft, Siemens, Beam Suntory, Linklaters & PLMJ will share their knowledge on the latest trends and technologies disrupting the legal IP sector.

Innovations Helping Manage Patents, Trademarks & Copyrights

One of the recent innovations in the industry is the use of AI-powered software for intellectual property management. They are designed to streamline the management of intellectual property by automating tasks such as patent and trademark searches, monitoring of competitors, and tracking of intellectual property rights. Online platforms such as patent databases, legal research databases, and online filing systems have made it easier for individuals and organizations to manage their intellectual property assets.

Join us in June to hear case studies from Fidal Innovation, EUIPO - European Union Intellectual Property Office, Amurabi & Allen & Overy on navigating the troublesome relationship between automation and managing privacy for digital assets.
