United States of America: U.S. Supreme Court Holds “First Sale” Doctrine Applies to Copies of a Copyrighted Work Lawfully Made Abroad.
The “first sale” doctrine, codified in Section 109 of the U.S. Copyright Act, permits the owner of a lawfully acquired copy of a copyrighted work to sell it without the copyright owner's permission, regardless of whether the copy was made in the United States or another country. In Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., the Supreme Court rejected any geographical restriction upon the “first sale” doctrine, relying on the language of the Copyright Act, Congressional intent, the common law, and policy considerations.

Thailand: Concurrent Registration of Similar Marks in Thailand. 
A recent and very important decision of the Thai Supreme Court (Matsuda & Co. v. Department of Intellectual Property and Valentino S.p.A.) has reviewed the law surrounding trademark registration and the potential conflict with prior-registered marks in Thailand. This article provides valuable insight into the effects of this decision and guidance to brand owners on what they need to know to register their trademarks.

Poland: Whatever happened to Polish support for Unified Patent Package.
Poland is one of only two EU countries which did not sign the international agreement on the Unitary Patent Court. This is the result of an intense domestic discussion as to possible negative impact of the unitary patent system in the EU on the Polish economy. The Polish National AIPPI Group actively participated in this discussion. 
(Article by Marek Łazewski, Secretary of Polish National Group of AIPPI)

https://www.aippi.org/enews/2013/edition30/Marek_Lazewski.html
On March 20, 2013, deputy prime minister and Polish Minister of Economy, Janusz Piechociński, announced that Poland will not sign the Agreement on the Unified Patent Court (UPC agreement) and therefore will deliberately stay outside the unitary patent protection system.

India: Indian Supreme Court rejects Novartis crystalline form patent.
The Supreme Court of India has rejected Novartis' patent application for the beta crystalline form of Imatinib Mesylate, on the ground of non-patentability under Section 3(d) and lack of inventive step. A new form of a known substance which does not result in enhancement of the known efficacy of that substance is not patentable. The Court held that Imatinib Mesylate was disclosed in the prior art, and, therefore, a “known substance”. The new beta crystalline form was not demonstrated to have any enhanced therapeutic efficacy over the known substance.

The Case: The free base form of Imatinib was already patented in the USA (Zimmermann patent). Novartis AG filed a patent application in India, claiming a beta crystalline form of Imatinib Mesylate. During its pendency, five pre-grant oppositions were filed by Indian generic pharmaceutical ...

AIPPI AIPLA FICPI PRIVILEGE COLLOQUIUM IN PARIS. 
Register now - few places left 

The Protection of Confidentiality of IP advice is being debated in various fora, including WIPO and as a part of the implementation of the new UPC in Europe. AIPPI, AIPLA and FICPI have joined forces to organize a Colloquium in Paris to assist the governments in developing international solutions. Speakers include Judge Timothy B. Dyk of the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; Professor John Cross of the University of Louisville; governmental representatives from Australia, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, and the USA; and Kevin Mooney, Chair of the Drafting Committee of the UPC Rules of Procedure. The Colloquium has to date been by invitation only, but registration has now been opened to all members of the organizing NGOs to fill the few remaining places on a first-come, first-serve basis.

United Kingdom: Copyright infringement & the Internet.
The UK Supreme Court decides that the Directive on harmonisation of copyright in the information society (Article 5(1), 2001/29/EC) excludes from infringement, copying purely as a consequence of viewing material on the internet. Unusually, it has sought guidance from the CJ(EU) because the application of copyright law to internet use has important implications for many people across the EU.
