THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A GREATER NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MECHANISMS TO GENERATE, EXPLOIT AND ENFORCE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, ACROSS MULTIPLE JURISDICTIONS.
As stated by the International Chambers of Commerce: “Intellectual property rights… have a vital role in growing the economies of developed and developing countries all over the world, in spurring innovation, in giving large and small firms a range of tools to help drive their success, and in benefitting consumers and society”.
However, in a world where business interests transcend national borders, both legal and political barriers remain, and continue to present challenges for companies seeking to develop truly global IP strategies.
As a key stakeholder in the IP system, Potter Clarkson would like to invite you to join us for a lively and candid Chatham House Rules discussion over lunch at London’s famous Royal Automobile Club to explore a number of key topics, including:
- Multi-Jurisdictional IP Claims - challenges inherent in managing parallel proceedings across multiple jurisdictions and how best to mitigate these, with a focus on procedural stays, conflicting judgments and differing disclosure regimes.
- Global Trade Mark Filing and Licensing Strategies – recognising the difficulties of effectively navigating the various transnational and national systems as they evolve.
- Differing International Approaches to Inherent Registrability - touching on such issues as computer software, business methods and second medical use patents.
We are extremely grateful to Sir John Mummery DL (former Lord Justice of Appeal, President of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal and member of the Court of Ecclesiastical Causes Reserved in the UK) for agreeing to chair this event, which will include contributions from senior members of the IP bar, solicitor and patent and trade mark attorney professions. We would be delighted if you were able to bring your own perspective, as a sophisticated user of global IP systems, to this discussion.
Timings for the event are as follows:
