GREETINGS FROM MALTA


Greetings from Malta

IPKat co-blogmeister Jeremy is in Malta this week for the MARQUES conference. MARQUES is the Association of European Trade Mark Owners, an organisation the importance of which is often overlooked.

The central theme for this year is sponsorship; the programme also addresses ambush marketing - a topic that is dear to the IPKat's heart in that, much as he loves IP, he feels that anti-ambush measures are anti-competitive, damaging to consumer choice and potentially open to grave abuse.

The IPKat hopes to post his daily thoughts on the issues raised at each day's sessions.
