Here's a new edition of Retromark ... to catch up with all the (cool) trade mark news!

After last year’s sell-out crowd, Retromark: the Conference returns for another afternoon of trade mark law and practice on Wednesday, 27 March 2019. Darren Meale of Simmons & Simmons and the IPKat, supported by a range of speakers, will again be joining forces to probe at some of the most important issues in trade marks today (although we will do our very best not to mention Brexit). We are very pleased that Mr Justice Arnold has agree to be this year’s keynote speaker.

The event will take place at Simmons & Simmons’ London office in Moorgate from 2pm, culminating in drinks and canapés. The preliminary agenda is below and will be updated with additional speaker details in due course.

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.
