About us

LSW IP BLOG – our Blog is about the most important and
interesting areas of intellectual property law, including copyrights,
film, media, advertising and internet law, personal rights
and the laws concerning innovative technologies.

It is directed to creators, producers, and people in the media and

advertising, sports and science.

We discuss some of the most inspiring and influential cases, presenting
our analysis and commentary, highlighting practical issues regarding the
use of the provisions at hand in the European Union, Poland and Globally.

The „personal data protection craze” is behind us. Is a „non-personal data protection craze” in store?
The General Data Protection Regulation, popularly referred to as the „GDPR”, created a great deal of legal, business as well as social and cultural agitation.

THE LAW HAS NEVER KEPT UP WITH TECHNOLOGY
When we talk about new technologies we often intuitively think about the future, the Silicon Valley, technological start-ups. These natural associations are obviously correct but highly insufficient. Leaving aside the philosophical and scientific considerations concerning the nature of the future, with Albert Einstein’s famous statement that the difference between the past, present and future is [...]


PERSONAL RIGHTS
The geometric wolf a plagiarism? The copyright dispute over the logotype of the Premiership football club
A trial which may create a great deal of trouble for one of the Premier League clubs has just started in London. After a freshly won Premiership promotion the Wolverhampton Wanderers must face charges of infringement of rights to the Mystery Wolf, which has been the Wolves’ logo almost uninterruptedly since 1979.[1] Everything started in [...]


FILM AND TV
Is it worthwhile to go to the cinema?
  When we think about films we invariably associate them with the cinema. Their premieres take place on the silver screens of movie theatres – this is the most awaited moment even with regard to festival films, because it enables the audience to see a new work for the first time. Film festivals help in [...]


ADVERTISING
Fashion – with the law at its inception
The world of great fashion involves collections, fashion shows, sessions, banquets and spectacular shifts at the top. Milan, Paris, London, New York, increasingly Dubai. One has to have the appropriate profession or a day made of rubber to catch up with it all. How did it start? At a time when people’s lives were much [...]

Christian Louboutin wins the red sole dispute
The trademark in the form of colour of the shoe sole is not covered by the ban on registration of shapes – the European Court of Justice ruled. The French fashion designer, Christian Louboutin, won the long court battle for his legendary red patent leather soles, which are his identification mark. Everything started with Christian’s [...]


EVENTS
Important changes in tourist services law – the uncertain future of corporate events and team building trips?
A real revolution in the event industry is at hand. Not only does it impose additional obligations, increases the costs of organising events, but also creates additional business risk caused by highly ambiguous regulations.
