Intellectual Property newsletter - Edition 3/2022

Welcome to the KPMG Intellectual Property newsletter on developments in the world of copyright, patents, trademarks, designs, domains and other Intellectual Property rights (“IPRs”). KPMG firms are proud of their global network, with IP lawyers, enabling KPMG professionals to offer an international service to clients in this area.

The metaverse is an exciting new universe, associated with diverse challenges and opportunities. We look at some of them with regard to legal and tax aspects.
But also in the real world, many challenges arise in relation to IP protection. Governments are addressing them with new legislative initiatives. In this issue, we report on developments in Poland and Vietnam and shed some light on the General Audiovisual Communication law recently published in Spain.  
An important step in international design law was China's accession to the Hague System at the beginning of the year. In this issue we analyze what this means for you.
Furthermore, we explain various court decisions on important legal principles such as data protection and the "right to be forgotten" vs. freedom of speech.  
You can also find more news from the world of Intellectual Property in this issue.
