to the fourth edition of ‘OwnershIP’, the Intellectual Property roundup from Blake Morgan.

Welcome...

A lot has changed since the last edition of OwnershIP. Covid-19 and Brexit have had profound impacts on IP, with major changes that all businesses need to be aware of but also a greater public awareness of IP. Trade mark filings have hit an all-time high, we've all consumed more copyright content than usual through streaming platforms, and vaccine patents have become part of everyday conversation.

In this edition we look at the new dawn for UK IP following Brexit and focus on the importance of IP in the food and drink sector – from considerations when commercialising your IP through franchising, to how to protect your confidential information, what rights there are in wine, to some moreish disputes and even a fight about a caterpillar cake.

The past year has also seen some fascinating celebrity spats reach the courts and we highlight the implications of these cases for protecting your reputation. We discuss the public safety risks posed by IP infringement but also consider the reasons why you may not want to enforce your IP, decisions relating to the enforcement of patents relating to the Covid-19 vaccines being a very present example.

As always our contributors will be delighted to discuss any of the issues they have raised in their articles.
