This month Download looks at current and future patent issues that are relevant to the technology sector. We consider the new Unitary Patent regime expected to come into force in the next couple of years, with particular reference to its complex translation rules. We also examine the subject of patents and personal data collecting technology, as well as the important issue of patent exhaustion for "software patents" in the European Union.
As the FinTech space explodes, start-ups as well as established companies are competing to lead the way. Whether it's crowdfunding, virtual currencies or payment services, there are complex legal challenges which need to be addressed by stakeholders at an early stage to help ensure success. We take a look at some of the key areas in FinTech and how to navigate relevant rules and regulations.
