A trademark is a word, name, symbol or device used in trade with goods to indicate the source or origin of the goods and to distinguish them from the goods of others. Trademarks are ubiquitous in the world of business and include many different types of marks. For example, some of the more common types of trademark, brand names and logos, help distinguish a company's products from its competitors'. Advertising slogans, which strengthen a corporate reputation in the minds of consumers, can also be trademarked. Certification marks, which are also a type of trademark, attest that a product meets a specified set of standards. While there is certain diversity amongst the types of trademarks, every kind of trademarks shares a few things in common. First, trademarks help your business communicate information about the quality of your products and services to the public. Through careful trademark selection and maintenance, you can set your company apart from the competition and establish a positive relationship with consumers.

If an idea stays in your head, it is just an idea. If you convert an idea into a song, a product, a design or a book then it becomes intellectual property. Now the idea has value and may need protecting. Protection can come in the form of a patent, copyright or trade mark. This protection is an incentive to firms to go on and produce the product. Patents protect the working parts of a product, what they do, how they do it, what they are made of and how they are made. A patent gives inventors control over their invention for twenty years. This can stop other would be manufacturers from making a similar product using their ideas. A patent gives firms a competitive advantage, they can establish their product in the market without any competition and charge higher prices which helps to recover their research costs. They could also sell the rights to the invention, or licence the invention to another manufacturer. Copyright laws protect the image of the product. The reason a business would want to protect images of their product is to ensure they are only used in situations that benefit the product and brand. Finally the name and company logo are protected by trademark. This is done by registering the product name or symbol with the intellectual property office. Business names and logos are valuable trademarks because they are a sign which distinguishes a firms products from its competitors.

Fakes worth millions seized in INTERPOL-led operation across Americas Operation Maya results released on World Intellectual Property Day LYON, France -- Fake goods including toys, computer software, clothing, beauty products, engine oil and cigarettes worth nearly 30 million US dollars have been seized in an INTERPOL-initiated and coordinated operation across 11 countries in the Americas. Codenamed Maya the two-week operation (1 -- 15 March) saw more than 1,000 interventions by police, customs, investigators and Intellectual Property (IP) crime experts at key locations such as land and sea and airport border control points in addition to markets, shops and street vendors, with 200 individuals arrested or currently under investigation and more than a million items recovered. The operation also revealed increasingly elaborate efforts by criminals to avoid detection, with items smuggled into a country via one route while counterfeit trade mark materials including stickers for computers, batteries, mobile phones and even car emblems, were sent separately to be used later to 'brand' the products. "Operation Maya again shows that there is no product which is not being counterfeited and criminals are using every means available to traffic fake and illicit goods," said Operation Maya project manager, Roberto Manriquez, a crime intelligence officer with INTERPOL's IP crime unit. "As with legitimate trade, criminals also follow the market and we have seen an increasing number of fake and illicitly traded electronics such as phone and computer parts and accessories. "This operation has again shown to effectively tackle this type of transnational crime, coordination between police and all involved partners, such as customs, prosecutors and the private sector is essential, and the results we have seen across all 11 countries are due to their commitment and support," concluded Mr Manriquez. In addition to counterfeits, the operation also identified routes used by organized crime groups for trafficking in illicit goods, stolen works of art, archaeological remains, wildlife and even child abuse images. Although investigations are currently ongoing in many of involved countries, INTERPOL is announcing the initial results from Operation Maya to mark World Intellectual Property Day, April 26. INTERPOL's IP crime programme activities revolve around three main areas: raising awareness and capacity building, delivering integrated training and operations, and international co-operation to assist all 190 member countries in identifying the individuals and transnational crime networks behind the trafficking of counterfeit and illicit goods. Operation Maya which was launched with the support of the US Department of Justice and US Patent and Trademark Office was based on INTERPOL's successful Operation Jupiter model which, since its launch in 2004, has resulted in more than 1,660 arrests, the seizure of more than 12 million counterfeit products worth more than 500 million US dollars. Countries involved in Operation Maya: Belize, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and the USA. For more information on individual results, please contact the national enforcement agencies in the countries concerned.

BOOK REVIEW ENFORCEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS THROUGH BORDER MEASURES Law and Practice in the EU 2nd Edition Edited by Olivier Vrins and Marius Schneider ISBN: 978 0 19 969293 4 www.oup.com and www.bordermeasures.com IP LAWYER WORKING IN THE EU? THIS BOOK IS WHAT YOU NEED INCLUDING FREELY ACCESSIBLE WEBSITE FOR THE LATEST NEWS ON BORDER MEASURES An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers 'Counterfeiting and piracy: a 21st century pandemic' is the heading that prefaces the remarks made in the foreword of this distinctly valuable book. In fact, we would have to say, an indispensable book, especially if you happen to be an intellectual property lawyer, whether independent or in-house. The editors, Marius Schneider and Olivier Vrins, are even more robust in their condemnation of the deluge -- make that a world-wide cataclysmic tsunami -- of counterfeited and pirated goods, brands, trademarks and so forth, currently flooding the world's markets. In the Preface, they are happy to call it a 'plague' which it unfortunately is, as evidenced alone by the multiplicity of figures and statistics quoted in this book. 'Scourge' and 'gangrene' are other descriptions which are accurate enough when you consider the many and manifold repercussions of this type of crime. As expressed by many of the no less than 70 learned contributors to this work -- now in its second edition from OUP -- the phenomena of piracy and counterfeiting are a threat to consumers worldwide. The threat in question is not merely an economic one, it's a serious risk to basic health and safety: brake pads made of compressed grass, for example, as well as any number of bogus pharmaceutical products, often and easily sold over the internet, with only the remotest chance of discovery or prosecution. How horrifying is that? This formidable and eminently readable work of reference analyses the way in which a European Regulation -- Regulation 1383/2003 -- works and is applied in each EU Member State -- and the modes of application certainly do vary, mainly due to differences in interpretation. 'Variations will continue,' remark the editors, 'for as long as the Court of Justice of the European Union has not been asked to examine them.' One of the many beauties of this book is Section IV on Border Measures at the National Level -- in which you can look up who's doing what about the enormity of this problem in each and every member state of the EU, from Austria and Belgium, to Spain, Sweden and the UK. Other sections include in-depth comment and analysis on counterfeiting and piracy with respect to, for instance -- its economic and social consequences... the international background and legal framework... and of course, the legal framework in the EU itself. Particularly intriguing is the chapter on the involvement of organized crime, including criminal multinationals, routes to market and modus operandi, as well as a summary of the current situation and outlook. As evident from its usefully detailed table of contents, this book of over 1,000 pages is logically structured, with each chapter having an introduction and conclusion. There's a detailed index at the back and at least fifty-five pages of tables of cases and legislation and of treaties and agreements. And don't forget the website -- freely available as a source of up-to-date news on border measures across the EU. The publication date is cited as at March 2012.

BOOK REVIEW INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, PHARMACEUTICALS AND PUBLIC HEALTH: Access to Drugs in Developing Countries Edited by Kenneth C. Shadlen, Samira Guennif, Alenka Guzman, N. Lalitha ISBN: 978 1 84980 0 143 Edward Elgar Publications www.e-elgar.com INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS MEET PUBLIC HEALTH WORLDWIDE An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Published by Edward Elgar, this book will appeal strongly to a wide range of professionals, academics and students with interest in and involvement in public health issues worldwide, specifically the pharmaceutical industry. As the subtitle indicates, the focus here pertains to access to drugs in developing countries, an issue which has raised its profile in the public consciousness with increasing frequency, especially of late. To cite just one example, the book's four expert editors point out that post-Apartheid governments in South Africa have struggled with meeting the dual objectives of increasing local production of essential medicines, whilst reducing prices. Bearing all this in mind -- including the ongoing controversies centering on branded versus generic pharmaceutical products -- the pharmaceutical industry, which is concentrated mainly in only six countries, relies very much on patents and trademarks and is therefore heavily dependent on intellectual property rights, patents in particular. One assertion made by the editors, however -- all of whom hail from top universities worldwide, including the LSE and McGill -- is that the ongoing harmonization of IP rights globally over the last three or four decades, has meant that the pharmaceutical industry generally, has increased its presence in developing countries, both with respect to production and distribution. The 13 international contributors to this study -- including the four editors -- examine all pertinent aspects of this fascinating field, including the latest developments across at least eleven different countries. Case studies are presented of national experiences in Africa, Asia and the Americas, notably Canada. Pricing and drug registration policies, as well as patents and other regulatory instruments are systematically and methodically examined. Interestingly, the book is the ultimate result of a collaborative project entitled 'Globalisation and Public Health in Developing Countries' funded by the Foundation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme in Paris. For those involved in healthcare disciplines -- and that includes lawyers with pharmaceutical clients -- the book is timely, topical, and packed with carefully researched information which puts a number of major issues relating to pharmaceuticals in perspective. Of great value to researchers are the copious footnotes and extensive bibliographies which follow most of the articles. If you're a student, academic, or practitioner in related IP issues, particularly international health, international political economy, or international development and law, this book certainly provides you with an impressive mine of information if you find yourself having to argue your corner on any number of legal, economic and ethical issues in this complex field of study.

BOOK REVIEW INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ENFORCEMENT A Commentary on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) By Michael Blakeney Edward Elgar Publications Limited ISBN: 978 1 84980 003 7 www.e-elgar.com PROTECTING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS WORLDWIDE --A NEW STRENGTHENED STANDARD An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Fundamentally it is innovation which keeps markets and economies moving. But in the wake of new ideas, there are always counterfeiters and pirates out there ready, willing and able to profit hugely by stealing them -- hence the pressing need for the protection of intellectual property and the even more pressing need for effective enforcement worldwide. Enter ACTA -- the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement finally enacted from 15 April 2011 after several years of tortuous negotiations and in the teeth of opposition in 2006 from Argentina, Brazil, China and India in response to an EU proposal at a TRIPS Council meeting that year, for 'an in-depth discussion' of enforcement issues. Recently published by Edward Elgar Publishing, this timely work of reference and research presents a thorough, scholarly and certainly readable examination of this newly enacted worldwide initiative, which has been signed by almost 40 nations footnoted in the book's Appendix, which contains the text of the ACTA itself. (It is illuminating, if dismaying, to note the nations that haven't signed up for it.) Providing for enhanced international cooperation in enforcement matters, the agreement promotes sound enforcement practices. Quoting the press statement issued by the negotiating parties, author Michael Blakeney points out that the ACTA 'establishes a strengthened standard that builds on the minimum standards of the TRIPS Agreement and therefore effects 'a considerable improvement in international trade norms for effectively combating the global proliferation of commercial-scale counterfeiting and piracy in the 21st century.' The book also comments upon all pertinent aspects of ACTA, including the negotiations and the impacts of the global trade in counterfeit and pirated products, citing along the way, some horrifying financial statistics. In 1995 apparently, the worth of such products was US$60 billion annually, a sum which increased 10-fold ten years later. One of the major contributions of ACTA, says Blakeney, is that 'both the direct and indirect benefits obtained by those participating in this trade should be subject to confiscation.' Check out Chapter 9 for more on the subject of implementing confiscation actions. Also note the important innovation of enforcing intellectual property rights in the digital environment. This important book should be required reading for all IP practitioners, academics, students and policy makers concerned with the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights. Extensively footnoted, with a detailed index at the back, this impressively analytical volume opens up any number of avenues for further research. The publication date is cited as at 11 November 2011.
