Wynne-Jones IP join Mojo Pitch 2018

​Wynne-Jones IP joins the inaugural Play Creators Festival and Mojo Pitch that will take place in September 2018 to help inventors and the creative industry across toys and and games realise the importance of protecting their IP. 

“We are thrilled to be participating in this inaugural event and helping inventors and the creative industry across toys and games realise the importance of protecting their IP,” said Victor Caddy, partner, Wynne-Jones IP.

“There’s nothing more important than protecting an asset, regardless of whether you’re a toy industry giant or a sole-trading inventor.  The Mojo Pitch event is a great initiative bringing everyone together and we hope that adding IP protection into the mix demonstrates it doesn’t have to be a dry subject, just one that adds value for all.”

More companies are set to announced in the coming weeks, and Mojo Nation will be publishing a wish list for participating firms, outlining what each company is looking for in terms of product, ahead of the event.

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
