Welcome to our winter round up of the Commercial and Technology team’s articles and activities since our previous E-News. We hope you are looking forward to your festive break and 2019.

In December’s edition of the Commercial and Technology E-News:

We look at the direction, challenges and opportunities for artificial intelligence from an industry and political perspective in the UK’s future tech ambitions after the explosion in AI investment recently.

Secondly, with the General Data Protection Regulations now bedded in firmly for the last 6 months, James Boyle looks at the real implications of the GDPR in the USA in his article.

Our third article considers the ever growing Internet of Things sector and how companies can be smarter with their security as the Government launches a new IoT security code of practice.

Our patent expert, Kevin Hanson, then talks through UK patent filing strategy and why it can be beneficial to file patents directly in the UK rather than filing through a European patent application.

Finally, Robyn Le Friec, explains the recent Competition and Markets Authority decision regarding the ticket re-sale site Viagogo and its impact on consumer law in the UK.

We hope you enjoy this edition. Do contact me or the authors of the articles if you would like further information.
