Editor's note

Sally Britton, Partner, Dispute Resolution

Last week we launched our Retail Academy, a programme covering legal and commercial issues impacting the retail sector. Our first session on 8 March looked at how retail brands are exploring NFTs as a way to broaden their consumer base and drive engagement – and the strategic, technological, legal and practical considerations that may arise. Please get in touch with our team if you would like to view a recording.

This Thursday, 17 March, we are holding our Annual IP seminar, where we will review the key developments relating to trade marks, copyright and designs over the last year. If you are interested in attending this online event, please register here.

In this edition, we touch on some of these developments, and in particular a number of important consultations as the UK looks to consider issues such as the future framework for design protection and parallel trade. You have until 25 March to respond to the UKIPO's Call for Views on the designs framework review.

Many thanks to the contributors to this edition. I hope you enjoy reading it.
