On April 10, 2021, Yuanqi Forest issued an apology statement on its official Weibo account, saying that the difference between "0 sugar" and "0 sucrose" was not stated in the logo and promotion of milk tea products, which could easily lead to misunderstanding among consumers.

The raw materials of all the forest milk tea produced since March 20 no longer contain crystalline fructose.

At the same time, Yuan Qi forest reminds a way: "milk tea has milk so it has sugar."

The IP Industry Outlook 2021 was released
2021知识产权行业展望报告发布

April 14, 2021

 

On April 2, 2021, intellectual property service provider NovumIP released the IP Industry Outlook 2021.

The report is based on interviews with more than 500 IP professionals around the world. The main survey is as follows:

  1. The biggest challenges facing the IP industry, including how the outbreak affects access to and management of IP portfolios;
  2. Priorities for IP investment in 2021 and beyond, including areas where IP professionals want the IP industry to develop;
  3. The role of IP service providers, including opportunities for suppliers to enhance their products and services to better serve IP departments and law firms;
  4. The impact of industry consolidation on IP professionals, including IP professionals' views on IP management technologies, costs, future priorities, etc. 

According to the report, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic change in the way IP professionals manage their patent and trademark portfolios, which most IP professionals are optimistic about as the IP industry consolidates and becomes more globally integrated. But the main concern is that IP owners and their advisers are facing the need to find more effective ways to address their portfolio management challenges while focusing on the long-term strategic value of IP.

To address these challenges, the report identifies three key pain points for patentees in the post-epidemic era: adding value to the IP portfolio, reassessing IP strategies and technologies, and reducing costs and complexity.

2021年4月2日,知识产权服务商NovumIP发布2021知识产权行业展望报告(IP Industry Outlook 2021)。

报告通过了对全球500多名知识产权专业人士访谈,主要调查了:

(1)知识产权行业面临的最大挑战,包括疫情如何影响IP组合的获取和管理;

(2)2021年及以后知识产权投资的重点,包括知识产权专业人士希望IP行业发展的领域;

(3)知识产权服务提供商的角色,包括供应商为更好地服务于IP部门和律所,提升其产品和服务的机会;

(4)行业整合对IP专业人士的影响,包括IP专业人士对知识产权管理技术、成本、未来优先事项等的看法。

报告指出,COVID-19大流行导致IP专业人员管理其专利和商标组合的方式发生了巨大变化,随着IP行业进一步的整合和更紧密的全球一体化,大部分IP专业人士对此比较乐观,但主要的担忧是知识产权所有人及其顾问都面临着寻找更有效的方法来解决其投资组合管理挑战的需要,同时关注知识产权的长期战略价值。

为了应对这些挑战,报告提出了后疫情时期专利权人三大关键痛点:为IP组合增值、重新评估IP战略和技术以及降低成本和复杂性

LG and SK have settled a multi-billion dollar dispute over electric car batteries
LG和SK解决了一项数十亿美元的电动汽车电池纠纷

April 13, 2021

 

LG Energy Solution and SK Innovation have resolved a multibillion dollar trade secrets dispute over electric vehicle (EV) batteries, sidestepping a USITC decision that would have barred SK from importing its batteries into the US.

In a joint statement from the two South Korean companies, LG and SK announced they will be dropping all litigation and have signed a non-assertion agreement covering the US or South Korea for the next ten years.

As part of the agreement, SK will pay LG ₩2 trillion ($1.8 billion), comprising several lump-sum payments as well as running royalty fees.

"LG Energy Solution and SK Innovation have decided to settle to compete in an amicable way, all for the future of the US and South Korean electric vehicle battery industries," said Jong Hyun Kim, CEO and President of LG Energy Solution and Jun Kim, CEO and President of SK Innovation.

The decision handed down from the US International Trade Commission (USITC) in February, ruled that SK Innovation had violated key LG battery patents and hit SK with a ten-year import ban on its batteries into the US.

This decision would have severely disrupted business for automakers planning to build vehicles in the US—including Ford and Volkswagen—who had struck deals with SK to supply EV batteries.

LG能源解决方案(LG Energy Solution)和SK创新(SK Innovation)解决了一项涉及电动汽车(EV)电池的数十亿美元商业秘密纠纷,绕开了美国国际贸易委员会(USITC)禁止SK向美国进口电池的决定。

在两家韩国公司的联合声明中,LG和SK宣布他们将放弃所有诉讼,并签署了一份未来10年覆盖美国或韩国的不主张协议。

作为协议的一部分,SK将向LG支付₩2万亿(18亿美元),包括几笔一次性付款和运营特许权使用费。

LG能源解决方案首席执行官兼总裁Jong Hyun Kim和SK创新首席执行官兼总裁Jun Kim表示:“LG能源解决方案和SK创新已经决定以友好的方式竞争,这一切都是为了美国和韩国电动汽车电池行业的未来。”

美国国际贸易委员会(USITC)在2021年2月做出的决定,裁定SK创新侵犯了LG的关键电池专利,并对SK实施了为期10年的电池进口禁令。

这一决定将严重扰乱计划在美国生产汽车的汽车制造商的业务,包括福特和大众,它们已与SK达成了提供电动汽车电池的协议。
