Welcome to the Spring edition of Hot Topics in Intellectual Property and Technology. This is the second of our quarterly bulletins highlighting some topical developments in the UK in the areas of intellectual property and technology, contract, data privacy, trade secrets, and advertising and media. Our intention is to alert you to upcoming legal developments, so we have kept detail to a minimum. Feel free to discuss any of the developments, and the implications for your business, with your usual Squire Sanders contact or any of the individuals listed in this publication. You can also visit our Global Business IP and Technology Blog, which is a source of more comprehensive news and insight into legal issues of interest to the global intellectual property and technology community.
