International Trademark Law Committee


This committee will evaluate the effects of newly implemented international trademark and trade dress related treaties and national laws on international trademark/dress protection, prosecution, and enforcement. The Committee will evaluate the need for legislative and regulatory action to address such concerns. The Committee will also focus on developing policies and educating IPO members, the judiciary, and other stakeholders regarding the value of trademark rights, the impact of relevant changes in the legal landscape of each of the various jurisdictions, and any new proactive measures owners and practitioners should take to maximize the potential benefits from international trademark rights.
