|Seeking an Arrow|
Sunday, 22 January 2017
This Kitten is delighted to bring you the 131th edition of Never Too Late covering the posts from 9 until 15 January!
GuestKat Eibhlin Vardy discusses Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics Co., Ltd v AbbVie Biotechnology Ltd & Anor  EWCA Civ 1, which involves two appeals, both raising the question of whether a Court can grant a so called ‘Arrow declaration’, i.e. a declaration that “a product was old or obvious in patent law terms at a particular date”.
Yangjin Li shares a guest post analysing the reasons why the State Intellectual Property Office of China (SIPO) tops the World Intellectual Property Indicators of IP Offices based on receiving more patent applications, the quality of the patent applications filed and the impact of this patent activity on China.
GuestKat Rosie Burbidge discusses Bhayani & Anor v Taylor Bracewell LLP,  EWHC 3360, a summary judgment in which addressed the question of whether there was passing off due to the use of the plaintiff’s family name as part of the law firm’s name after she had left the partnership.
