TechRadr.com – The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has announced a crackdown on patent trolls and companies who try to steal from consumers and businesses, as part of the USPTO’s Global Innovation Agenda, which will see the office take action against companies like Amazon.com, which has a large market share in China and has been accused of using patent trolls to target Chinese consumers and enterprises.
The USPTA said it has issued the following warning to companies who engage in patent trolling in China: The US PTO will be more aggressive in identifying patent trolls.
We are asking companies to take action, including, but not limited to, reporting them to the US PTA.
The action is designed to combat patent trolling by ensuring that their intellectual property is protected and enforced.
In addition, the USPA will make available information on the US patent office’s investigations into patent trolls, and will share this information with relevant regulators and authorities.
USPTC spokesperson Sarah Dickey said the US government had also been working with Chinese regulators on a number of matters, including online bullying and copyright infringement.
“In our view, patent trolls are using China as a way to evade their obligations under international patent law,” Dickey told TechRadars.
“The USPTS and Chinese authorities should work together to identify and prevent the practice of patent trolling.”
Chinese patent trolls in China have been blamed for causing many of the recent IP problems plaguing the Chinese market.
A Chinese government-backed patent troll named the Patent Office (OPC) has been identified as the largest US patent troll in China.
This troll has targeted Chinese consumers, as well as foreign companies, and the Chinese government has launched an anti-troll campaign aimed at countering the POC’s alleged activities.
According to a recent report by the Wall Street Journal, the POTUSPTO has been caught red-handed attempting to steal patent ideas from foreign companies and use them to sue the US companies for copyright infringement in China through the Chinese Patent Office.
As a result, China has ordered a number other US companies to halt patent infringement in their products, and China has announced that it will introduce stronger measures against patent trolls that attempt to steal Chinese technology and intellectual property.
China is also looking to crack down on patent troll activity in Europe, as a result of the UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union, which had allowed the PTC to sue foreign companies for patent infringement and patent infringement.
The UK government also announced a $1 billion fund to support the creation of a new EU-wide intellectual property protection agency.
The new agency will also oversee the creation and implementation of a European Intellectual Property Office, which is expected to help to combat the patent trolls who use the IP of European companies to sue them for patent infringements.
Patent trolls in Europe The UK has been the most successful jurisdiction in Europe to tackle patent trolls through legislation and other means, according to a report by Gartner.
In 2017, the UK government passed the UK Intellectual Property Act (UKIPA), which gave the UK the power to block IP infringement in the EU.
The EU had previously attempted to introduce a similar measure through a controversial anti-piracy scheme known as “the black hat” legislation, which was also proposed by the UK.
The IP act was eventually repealed in 2020 by the European Parliament, with the current UKIPA having passed in May 2018.
The European Commission (EC) and the European Patent Office have been involved in an ongoing battle with the PCT in the UK since 2017, with both agencies saying they will continue to fight the troll in the US.
“Patent trolls are not just a threat to innovation, they are also a threat not just to the UK, but to the entire European Union,” said the EU’s director general for innovation and policy, Fabio Sittler, in a statement.
“We are working with the US to build on the momentum we created in 2017 to build a stronger anti-patent enforcement regime, which aims to combat IP theft, and to ensure that the PTO, the EU, and other member states are able to effectively enforce intellectual property laws.”
According to Gartener, this fight against the PPC will be difficult for China to win, as it has a strong market share and large market-share companies.
“China has historically been a leader in patent litigation and patent trolls often use Chinese patents as a tool to obtain money and gain market share,” said Garteners senior policy analyst, Adam Leach.
“But the US is the only country that has developed an effective anti-virus software program and the PPP has taken a significant step towards fighting this type of software.”
USPTP’s Global Innov Agenda 2016 update also highlighted other measures the US will take in China to tackle IP infringement.
Specifically, the policy will address the misuse of the IP protection system in China, including by Chinese companies to try to prevent other foreign companies
