Around the IP Blogs!

As always, the IPKat brings you news and insights from IP Blogs around the web!

News from Latin America directly from the IPTango blog: In Brazil the National Institute for Intellectual Property and the National Institute for Statistics has created a map collecting all Brazilian geographical indications: Denominação de Origem (DO) and Indicação de Procedência (10 and 49 respectively). See Brazil: Geographical Indications in a map for more details and a link to the map itself. As well, during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Forum, Peru demonstrated examples of good practice in the areas of traditional knowledge protection, inventions and new technologies and trade marks in a border context. Patricia Covarrubia reports.

The Copykat collection of the 1709 Blog brings us an interesting insight on litigation faced by Spotify, copyright protection of the song “We shall overcome”, IP protection for tattoos and much more!

If you are particularly interested in the copyright protection of tattoos, Tattoos, Architecture and Copyright by Michael Risch of the Written Description Blog gives another interesting point of view!

The Finnish Supreme Administrative Court has ruled in Valioravinto 1960, as reported by Marjut Alhonnoro in the Marques Class 46 blog. The case deals with likelihood of confusion and reputation vis à vis a reputed mark. First class!

In Personality rights of a politician – new ruling by Austrian Supreme Court, Rainer Schultes of the Kluwer Trademark Blog reports on a case dealing with party games, politicians accused of corruptions, name initials and satire.

And to close off still with an eye on politics, the Blog de Droit Européen des Brevets presents as invention de la semaine a patent application for genetic profiling to select politicians lodged by Greenpeace. A new horizon for democracy?
