The substantive work of AIPPI involves the study of topical issues in IP and the development of resolutions that are debated, amended, and adopted at annual Congress meetings. Typically, there is a study question in at least each of the areas of Patents, Trademarks, Designs/Copyright, and IP Litigation.
The 2022 Congress will address issues of:
- Patentability of Diagnostic Methods – Q280
- Trademarks and the internet and social media – Q281
- Moral rights – Q282
- Protection of trade secrets during litigation and other proceedings – Q283
SQ 276 Resolution – Inventiveness and Sufficiency of Dislosure in AI Inventions
SQ 277 Resolution – Registrability of trade marks against public order or morality
SQ 278 Resolution – Industrial designs and the role of prior art
SQ 279 Resolution – Reasonable awareness in compensation for infringement of IP rights
The resolutions adopted at earlier Congresses and all the summary reports, study guidelines, and national group reports are available from the AIPPI library here.
