In this month’s IP Literature Watch we include a paper examining the proposal to introduce essentiality checks, a certification scheme for declared SEPs; an article comparing US and European approaches to determining Fair Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) rates for Standard-Essential Patents (SEPs) when parties are in dispute; a commentary summarizing recent experimental work related to the current state of trademark surveys; a paper showing that when lawmakers embed the acquisition of patents into social policies relating to education, migration, and criminal sentencing, they can trigger patenting crazes among individuals; a piece delving into the legal and regulatory implications of Generative AI and LLMs in the European Union context, analyzing aspects of liability, privacy, intellectual property, and cybersecurity; and a chapter analyzing key features of the European Union – United Kingdom Trade & Cooperation Agreement (TCA) relating to capital movements, digital trade and intellectual property rights (IPRs).
