Course overview

This must-attend annual event has been specifically designed for all senior trade mark and design administrators. It will bring you up to date with any recent EUIPO legal reforms, focusing on changes to the law and practice, including a case law summary.

The EUIPO is constantly innovating and updating its online systems and tools, and you will get a tour through not only EUIPO but some of the linked databases. The programme will show you the differences between EU, US, UK and foreign design filing practices and how you should approach these. It will also highlight the pitfalls to be aware of in relation to trade marks in the US, as well as focusing on other country-specific issues that you need to be aware of.

There will be extensive coverage of the common issues that can be encountered and how to deal with them to best effect.
