GRUR-ECTA Joint Brussels Workshop “European Trade Mark System(s) under review – A first summary of the new legal framework”, Brussels, 30 May 2012

In its 5th edition of the GRUR meets Brussels Workshop series, the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (GRUR) has joined forces with the European Communities Trade Mark Association (ECTA) to organise a GRUR-ECTA Joint Brussels Workshop entitled "European Trade Mark System(s) under review – A first summary of the new legal framework".

This joint event consisting of two high level panels will provide a comprehensive roundup of the outcomes of the Max Planck Institute’s Study and especially of the package of legislative proposals to be presented by the European Commission in the spring of 2012.

In a first panel, the MPI and key EU legislators will offer their insights of the new envisaged EU legal framework resulting from the EU/MPI Study.

The second panel will bring key representatives of OHIM, national trade mark officers and users together to discuss the new challenges and perspectives in the context of a peaceful coexistence of the EU and national trade mark systems.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 30 May 2012 (from noon to 5 pm) at the Permanent Representation of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia to the European Union in Brussels and will be followed by a reception.  

GRUR and ECTA are pleased to invite their members and interested circles to this joint event. Please already mark your agenda. The detailed final programme and registration form will be made available in the coming weeks.
