Minesoft client OlarteMoure represented Ericsson in Colombia in their recent patent dispute with Apple

Minesoft client, OlarteMoure, represented Ericsson as their litigation counsel in Colombia during their recent global standard essential patent (SEP) dispute with Apple. As a result of a preliminary injunction, tech giant, Apple, was prevented from selling the iPhone 12, 13 & 14 in Colombia. Despite seeking emergency relief from the Colombian courts, the injunction was upheld as constitutional. The patent dispute between Ericsson and Apple started back in 2021 after negotiations failed over the renewal of a seven-year licensing contract, specifically over the use of 4G and 5G wireless SEPs in iPhones. Ericsson sued in 2022, claiming that Apple’s failure to renew the past license, and yet continued to use the patented technology, confirmed its efficient infringer strategy in an attempt to hold out before being forced into a new license. The iPhone maker defended itself accusing the Swedish company of using “strong-arm tactics” to force unjust licencing terms and conditions in violation of FRAND obligations imposed on SEP owners.

The Role of Patents in the Food Industry

The Role of Patents in the Food Industry

In recent years, the food industry has experienced significant growth in innovation as new technologies and research are constantly emerging. One critical aspect of food innovation is the protection of intellectual property through patents. This has led to an increase in patent filings for food-related inventions, including new ingredients, packaging, production methods, and more. As the food industry continues to grow and evolve, the role of patents in protecting food innovation will become increasingly important. This blog post will shed some light on some of the most intriguing inventions in the field of food innovation.

Innovations paving the way for wetland restoration

World Wetlands Day is celebrated each year on the 2nd of February to raise awareness about wetlands and the important role they play in our planet’s ecosystem. We are losing wetlands three times faster than forests, nearly 90% of the world’s wetlands have been degraded since the 1700s, with 35% of the world’s wetlands disappearing in the last 50 years. Wetlands are critically important ecosystems that contribute to biodiversity, climate mitigation and adaptation, freshwater availability, world economies and more. Innovators worldwide are now finding ways to restore and protect key areas and reverse their rapid loss. More…

Potencialize suas descobertas com a PatBase

Com o aumento de demanda para análises de citações em patentes globais para organizações internacionais, o volume e a complexidade das citações de patentes se tornam uma área difícil de navegar com eficiência, porém, com as ferramentas corretas, é também uma área incrivelmente valiosa. A compreensão de citações requer análise de um grande volume patentes, onde a qualidade dos dados são primordiais. Interpretar um grande conjunto de dados como este pode ser difícil. Alguns anos atrás, as grandes ferramentas de análise de dados (big data) e a falta de dados globais não permitiam tal interpretação.

Converting excess carbon dioxide into organic molecules

 

Since the Industrial Revolution, CO2 emissions have been consistently rising with analysts estimating that total global carbon dioxide emissions reached 40.6 billion tonnes in 2022. Scientists and engineers are not only looking for green alternatives to help reduce emissions, but also ways to utilise the excess carbon dioxide available. A team of researchers from Cornell University has used electrochemistry to convert carbon dioxide into a series of organic molecules that are vital to pharmaceutical development. More…
