Patenting Lives Free Public Workshop - London

patentingLIVES The second free public workshop in the Patenting Lives series will be held in London, 12th February 2007.

The workshop will deal with the potential overlap of protection for signs as both trade marks and designs. This issue is particularly important because designs give broader protection, while trade marks are potentially protected indefinitely. Therefore, the overlap in rights has generated much concern.

The issue will be addressed by a distinguished panel:
The discussion will be chaired by Simon Malynicz, Intellectual Property Barrister, Hogarth Chambers.

The workshop will be held at 6pm in the Intellectual Property Seminar Room, Charterhouse Square (#1 on the map), and will be followed by drinks.

The workshop is free but numbers are limited, so please register by email to Johanna Gibson. More details are available at Patenting Lives.
