    The market for medical and healthcare products continues to accelerate. There is still a high demand for ventilators and other patient-connected systems.

This is helping to reduce the burden on health services and at the same time has the added benefit of limiting potential exposure to the virus for both parties.

  • Expanding frontiers of Intellectual Property Rights in Computer Games and Virtual Reality

    At a glance: Virtual / fictional trade marks are, for example product or company names that only exist in a film or a computer game. Because of the popularity of the story or the medium in which the brands/products are featured, there is a desire to take advantage of the recognition and virtual reputation on the market. Under current laws rights holders often have to rely on copyright or forms of IP other than trade marks, as use of a brand name in virtual content or in the context of a made-up world does not necessarily provide protection in respect of physical goods. The legal landscape may be changing due to an increasing focus on the marketability of virtual goods, e.g. through NFTs, which is also starting to influence how rights holders register and protect their trade marks. And in more detail: With the recent excitement around the “metaverse”, NFTs, and the market for “virtual products” heating up, it is a good time to take a closer look at the protection of brands in computer games and virtual reality environments, as well as art, film and other media more broadly. In particular, this author looks to explore what happens when artistic creations and “virtual” or “fictional” brands start a life of their own.
