Trademark law has continued to become ever more complex. To add to the challenge, courts regularly revise trademark law affecting trademark holders along with the manner by which the law will be applied. Similarly, trademark related litigation is also on the rise. It is therefore essential for in-house counsel and attorneys responsible for trademark protection to be aware of the developments.
In this two-hour LIVE webcast, the panel of thought leaders and key experts will discuss key issues regarding trademark litigation. Speakers will cite and examine cases, provide valuable insights on trademark law updates and will offer tools and best practices to help you manage and protect your IP assets. A Live Q&A session is also included in this event.
