Wynne-Jones IP named headline sponsor of inaugural Mojo Nation 100; A celebration of the leading global figures working in toy and game design

The Mojo Nation 100 in association with Wynne-Jones IP is a listing of the most influential figures currently working in the world of toy and game design across five categories: Rising Stars, Research & Development, Design Agencies, Freelance and Design Champions.

“Wynne-Jones IP is delighted to be headline sponsor of the inaugural Mojo Nation 100, which champions design creativity and innovation in the toy and game industries,” said Amy Kasprzyca, senior marketing executive at Wynne-Jones IP.

“Year-on-year these sectors continue to thrive, and it is largely down to those working at the very early stages who spend countless hours in developing ground-breaking designs which result in the toy and game industries continuing to delight both children and adults, time and time again.”

Billy Langsworthy, founder of Mojo Nation, commented: “We’re delighted to have Wynne-Jones IP on board for the first ever Mojo Nation 100.

“The firm absolutely understands the value in highlighting and celebrating the creative backbone of the toy and game industry, and is passionate about helping both individual designers, as well as teams within companies, best protect their creations.”

 

Kasprzyca added: “As a specialist IP law firm we recognise the importance in both strategic planning and protection, which ultimately can be the key to success: working with individuals and start-ups, as well as global brands, our job is to champion your Intellectual Property. The Mojo Nation 100 is an exciting opportunity for us to support the worthy individuals and companies who have taken a toy or game idea and made it happen.”

 

The Mojo Nation 100 in association with Wynne-Jones IP will launch at UK Toy Fair in January 2018, and be available from the Mojo Nation stand GH48. It will also be available to pick up at the Toy Inventors Dinner at Spielwarenmesse and the 2018 US Toy Fair in New York.

Much Ado About Nothing

For a long time, a source of tension among UK trade mark and design attorneys was the fact that the UK was one of the few EU member states to abide by a decision to allow attorneys from any European Economic Area country to represent clients in proceedings before any national office of an EU member state.  With this in mind, one of the ironies of Brexit is that, from 1st January 2021, UK trade mark and design attorneys will (in general – please see below for a super-important exception!) lose the right to represent clients before the EU IPO
