Maucher Jenkins has a wealth of experience in patenting inventions in the areas of broadcast, digital and social media, such as targeted advertising, electronic programme guides, mobile
apps and gaming.
Examples of inventions we have successfully patented in the UK include:
- a personalised news bulletin service
- an online electronic programme guide
- a video streaming app
- a mobile check-in system for bank customers.
We are able to advise on all aspects of IP protection and we work with media clients to devise the best protection strategy for the project in hand. We recognise that patents can be too slow and uncertain in the fast-moving world of digital media and can advise on alternative strategies based on registered designs and brand protection.
We also have vast experience in advising on trade mark and design protection strategies in film, television and the fast-paced telecommunications and information technology fields. We have cleared, registered and enforced trade marks worldwide for mobile phone applications, software technology, mobile phone tariffs, IT support services and online services both customer-facing and B2B, also negotiating coexistence agreements.
In the area of film and television, we act for well-known movie studio clients and their licensees in all areas of trade mark clearance, protection and enforcement. In particular, we have stopped the sale of counterfeit merchandise and the misuse of well-known film titles and logo designs for dissimilar goods and services.
