Apple to pay $25M to settle Patent Infringement Lawsuit with Non-Practicing Entity

A court battle between Apple and Network-1 from 2008 had a recent development. It all started when a company named Mirror Worlds filed a lawsuit against Apple, due to an infringement of patents describing streams of information in a computer system. A similar functionality is found in Apple’s Time Machine and Cover Flow.

EU approves 'Privacy Shield" Data-Transfer agreement with US

EU approves 'Privacy Shield" Data-Transfer agreement with US

Following several months of uncertainty and speculation, the trans-Atlantic agreement between the European Union and the United States of America has been officially adopted on Tuesday the 12th of July, 2016.

The agreement, known as ‘Privacy Shield’ intends to protect data between the EU and the US, two regions that have distinct regulations concerning data security. It establishes restrictions on the mechanisms by which the American government can access the data of EU consumers and it also establishes a structure for EU citizens that fear their data might have been compromised and monitored without an underlying cause. It will also provide a structure for businesses to transfer Cross-Atlantic data transfers effortlessly without breaching EU transferal rules.

Djibouti integrates the Patent Cooperation Treaty

Djibouti integrates the Patent Cooperation Treaty

Djibouti has become the 150th Member State to join the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), it filed its instrument of accession on the 23rd of June, 2016 and the treaty is expected to be enforceable from the 23rd of September, 2016. The law in Djibouti is due to be amended in order to cater for PCT international applications.

Djibouti’s accession to the treaty will greatly assist the future development of its IP institutions which currently find themselves in premature stages of development. The PCT will not only allow a more cost effective and hassle-free filing system, but it will also provide assistance with regards to granting decisions and pathways to a vast compilation of technical information and knowledge.
