Intellectual Property Act 2014: The New Law on Opinions – NIPC Law

Posted October 30th, 2014 in intellectual property, legislation, news, patents by sally

‘As I indicated in How the Intellectual Property Act 2014 changes British Patent Law JD Supra 21 June 2014 s.16 of the Intellectual Property Act 2014 amends s.74A and s.74B of the Patents Act 1977 and inserts three new subsections into s.73. The upshot as explained in paragraph 4 and paragraph 5 of the IPO’s guide Expansion of the Patent Opinions Service: business guidance is that the range of questions upon which an examiner’s opinion can be obtained has been expanded and the Comptroller now has power to revoke patents which are found to be invalid.’

End of the ASBO: “community trigger” scheme to tackle anti-social behaviour – Halsbury’s Law Exchange

Posted October 14th, 2014 in ASBOs, domestic violence, legislation, news, victims by sally

With the Scottish referendum dominating the headlines last month, the introduction of the new Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (“the Act”) has been somewhat overshadowed. However, fanfare or no fanfare, the Act is coming into force this month (in the main) on 20 October 2014. The Act not only marks the end of the “ASBO” but also introduces new, important powers aimed at “putting the victim first”. These powers are only useful, however, if people know about them.
