Full speed ahead for INTA regatta

It's not often that the IPKat gets to publicise any events that take place in Australia, but it's not often that the International Trademark Association (INTA) holds an Asia-Pacific Trademark Regatta either.

Right: Sydney is no stranger to regattas. This one was from the Paralympics held there in 2000.

The event takes place on 11-12 March at the Sheraton on the Park Hotel, Sydney. According to the web-blurb:

"In a year when Australia-based 2008 INTA President Elect Rhonda Steele will turn the world upside down and look at things from a different perspective, learn about trademark issues faced by brand owners and practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region.

Meet with law firm and in-house trademark colleagues, and talk to government officials from all over the world who will be in town and will participate in this joint conference and in a major government trademark forum meeting with IP Australia later on in the week. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge while experiencing the awesome beauty of the city of Sydney.

The educational sessions will focus on issues facing trademarks throughout the region, including:

Issues impacting the future direction of trademarks
Indigenous Peoples and trademarks
Nontraditional trademarks – A review of Trade Mark Office and Court decisions, and the attitude toward survey evidence
Protection of famous trademarks and related dilution issues
Madrid Protocol – Has it been good for business?
A roundup of Internet issues
Case studies and successful branding strategies".

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
