IP Update – December 2011 Issue 14
In this edition of the IP Update we discuss a number of important intellectual property cases that have been handed down over the last couple of months, including the Apple v Samsung case, as well as discussing trade mark issues arising out of Australia’s recent Tobacco Plain Packaging legislative reforms and several more.
We are extremely pleased to announce that the firm recently received the prestigious Asia IP Awards – Australian Patent Firm Award for 2011, for the second year running.
On behalf of the partners and staff of Davies Collison Cave we wish everyone a happy and safe festive season and New Year.
