ROBIC’s Conference on Trademarks: A Greatly Appreciated Initiative


Lecturers Nicolas Sapp, Catherine Bergeron, Bob Sotiriadis and Laurent Carrière presented more in details the strategic sides to take into account when managing a trademark portfolio. The topics of the day, separated in three blocks, covered the different types of trademarks, reasons to register a trademark, distinctive character and the relation between trademark, industrial design and copyright.

Aimed at businesses involved in the protection, development and management of trademarks, this half-day conference brought together over 100 people. Repeting the successful format of the previous conference on parents given in February 2012, ROBIC covered the most frequently asked questions about trademarks.

Given the success of this event, ROBICwill hold further intellectual property and IP business law conference sessions in the coming months. The next conference will be held in Fall 2013. The picture album is available here.
