The trend is clear - design protection is increasingly attracting attention from both SMEs and global players.

This comparatively inexpensive IP right is a means of driving not only product imitations but also design variations produced by competitors out of the market. In this respect, growing case law from the CJEU as well as a rich body of decisions from EUIPO and national Community design courts provide helpful guidance on the application of the sophisticated legislation. This practical online course will be a much-needed guide to law and practice.

Attendees will get a systematic overview and will examine the interpretation provided by EUIPO and the European Courts, as well as direction on issues which remain unsolved. Our speakers will suggest authoritative answers to key problems of EU design law and give an update on most recent case-law.
Who should attend

Do you work in a corporate IP/trademark/design/legal department or as a patent, trademark or design attorney in private practice and need a systematic overview of EU design law?

Then this course is designed for you. Knowledge of IP law is required.
