US biotechnology company Gilead Sciences has announced licence deals with Indian drugmakers that will see generic versions of one of its headline products sold at lower prices in emerging markets.

Intel acquires more patents to boost its smartphone strategy

We’ve known for several yeas that Intel’s focus on the secondary patent market is to bolster its patent portfolio in the mobile space as the company struggles to establish a foothold in the smartphone sector. In 2011 the chipmaker lost out to the Rockstar consortium in the bidding for the Nortel portfolio. It followed that setback soon afterwards, though, with the 2012 acquisition of a large portfolio from InterDigital for $375 million and last week it was announced that ...

China’s anti-trust regime poses serious challenges for foreign IP owners

China premier Li Keqiang has indicated that his country’s authorities are to step up efforts to address the perceived intellectual property abuses of both domestic and foreign entities. But while IP owners will be pleased to hear that infringers could face tougher penalties, they should also be aware that their own activities may come under far closer antitrust scrutiny than was previously the case.

FRAND-tastic – an issue that came up time and again at IPBC Japan was standards-essential patents (SEPs) and the fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing of those assets to industry.
