Webinar: Around the World in 60 Minutes-An Introduction to International Trademark Prosecution

Please share:

February 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

1 Participatory MCLE Credits

Presented by the Trademark Interest Group

Trademark rights are territorial. If your clients are doing business outside of the US, trademarks registrations at the USPTO will not be sufficient to protect their ability to use (and prohibit others from using) their trademarks internationally. This webinar will cover options and strategic considerations for developing an international trademark portfolio, including the following:

  1. Why file internationally
  2. Where to file
  3. First to file – civil vs common law jurisdictions
  4. Paris Convention
  5. Madrid Protocol
  6. National Filings
  7. Filing Strategies: countries, classes, countries of manufacture, countries with high counterfeiting rates, distributors/licensees
  8. Budgets, cost management, and phased filings
