Sally Britton - Mishcon de Reya

Welcome to our Spring 2024 edition of Brand Matters. 

AI continues to be a key area of focus for Brand owners. With the Government recently confirming that it has not been possible to broker a voluntary code of practice between AI developers and rights holders relating to the use of IP works in the training of AI tools, and the Courts faced with a number of lawsuits on these issues, there is much to look out for in the coming months (you can follow the various cases and policy developments in our tracker).

We also report on a number of recent decisions in the online sphere - including the Court of Appeal's decision in favour of companies in the Swatch Group against Samsung's App store, a successful claim of unjustified threats of IP infringement proceedings in relation to the use of 'notice and takedown' procedures on Amazon, and the Supreme Court's decision finding infringement by Amazon as a result of targeting UK consumers on its .com website. 

Thank you to all the contributors of this edition. I hope you enjoy reading it.
