Aistemos blogposts for April: a handy summary

Every one of the blogposts listed below comes with a moderated comment facility, so please feel welcome to respond to anything you read, whether you disagree with it, wish to amplify or clarify its points, or merely provide further links to relevant material.

April's substantive blogposts are as follows:

Thursday, 27 April 2017: The IP Strategy Report -- now available online

Last month's inaugural Managing Intellectual Property IP Strategy Forum 2017 [on which see earlier blogposts here] provided a handy launch-pad for the Aistemos IP Strategy Report, prepared for the company by leading journalist Rebecca Burn-Callander, Enterprise Editor at the Telegraph and former Online Editor of Management Today Magazine. The report, at 38 pages, is packed with text and tables based on the findings drawn from an extensive survey of business attitudes and awareness conducted by Aistemos between August and October 2016. You can access it via this blogpost.


Many of those who attended the IP Strategy Forum (mentioned in the item above) were from IP's Big Battalions and their professional representatives, but others who made their presence felt were drawn from the banking, investment and academic sectors too.  Some were there to learn; others to meet celebrity speakers or old friends; others were there to gain some comfort from being able to share their feelings and their ideas with like-minded colleagues. All present were however in agreement about one thing. To find out what that was, read this blogpost.


This post corrects a piece of information concerning our level of activity on the blogosphere over the first few months of this year.


Should patent-granting offices keep to their traditional activities of examining and granting (or rejecting) patent applications, or is there scope for them to evolve into a wider role in terms of formulating and implementing economic policy?


In the wake of our recent and well-received posts on the spread of patents for encryption and cryptography ["Encryption, cryptography and the current state of patents", here, and "Encryption and Enigma", here], here's a follow-up on a specific aspect of security that has been quietly gaining momentum for some while: facial recognition. With the aid of the Aistemos Cipher tool, we have put together a few facts and observations for your interest and edification.
