This International Chamber of Commerce’s flagship intellectual property (IP) publication provides businesses and policymakers with a comprehensive and concise overview of key intellectual property policy issues today.
The new edition is an invaluable tool to bring stakeholders up to date on issues and includes several new topics, including IP management and licensing, patent quality, harmonisation and streamlining of trademark rules, trademark restrictions on packaging, non-traditional marks and innovation.
The roadmap has been restructured to better reflect the way businesses consider IP as an asset that can be used to create value for their companies, for consumers and for society as a whole. It has also undergone extensive updates in the introductory chapter and the sections on trademarks, trade secrets, domain names, enforcement on the Internet, litigating IP rights, counterfeiting, sustainable economic development and climate change.
The IP roadmap is freely downloadable here.
