The issue includes interesting exclusive research from our IP STARS team. The PCT Leaders Report 2017 reveals the top filing firms for international PCT applications between 2014 and 2016 in 19 of the most important patenting jurisdictions.

The issue’s cover story analyses how big a threat the use of tribal sovereign immunity is to the PTAB in the US. Elsewhere, we have articles on how artificial intelligence will change trade mark law, recent patent damages developments in China, analysis of district court stays pending PTAB review in the past 12 months, and trends in trade dress litigation.

In addition, we have regular sections including the Utynum’s Heirs column noting IP curiosities, our people moves round-up and sponsored international briefings with updates from around the globe.
