What we have been covering in IAM over the last seven days

This week IAM focused on a major challenge for Ericsson as the Swedish company launched a suit in Texas against LG that will put its patent portfolio under further scrutiny just months after a decision in California raised questions about its value. Elsewhere, we identified the key issues at play following the Trump administration’s threat to impose trade sanctions on China over alleged IP abuses; and we explained why a group of prominent law professors believes that it is the interpretation of the US Supreme Court’s Alice decision, rather than the decision itself, that is causing so much trouble State-side.
