Industrial Design 5 forum: worldwide IP and new technologies
The Industrial Design 5 forum (ID5) is a cooperation framework involving the worldwide 5 largest intellectual property design offices:
- the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA)
- the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO)
- the Japan Patent Office (JPO)
- the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO)
- the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)
And the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) as observer.
As part of their cooperation activities, they meet twice a year. This year the midterm was hosted by the EUIPO on 20-22 June in Alicante.
They exchanged experience and information on the use of new technologies: blockchain artificial intelligence, big data, digital designs, NFTs and Metaverse.
They discussed new project proposals for e-learning and the assessment of designs, indications for registered designs and design protection in the Metaverse.
Partners also commented on legislative challenges regarding the rapid growth of virtual space related industries, virtual products/services similar to the ones existing in the real world, and various types of digital products and designs.
The importance of design protection in the virtual space was stressed, especially because it doesn’t rely on national borders.
The offices will work together on two catalogues which will provide an overview of the terms of protection and remedies for industrial design rights in ID5 jurisdictions.
The ID5 Annual Meeting is set to take place in Brussels, Belgium, on 27-28 October 2022.
