#WorldIPDay Events Calendar

Tiffany Valeriano,

Next month offers a celebration of all things intellectual property related. April 26th, 2017 will be the 17th World IP day and is the anniversary of the day that the World Intellectual Property Organisation Convention was activated in 1970.

World IP day was brought into being with the intention of helping the world to understand how intellectual property contributes to our lives in both small and large ways.

In celebration, Dr. Holger Gauss, Attorney and Partner at Grünecker, and Tiffany Valeriano, Trademark Executive at TrademarkNow are hosting a 'World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Registration Masterclass.' This 45 minute webinar will explore what impacts the clearance process as well as potential things that may go wrong in the process. Topics to be covered in the workshop will be;

  • Meet the Madrid System
  • When is the Right Time to go International With Your Trademark? (Pros & Cons)
  • How-To Choose Your Base Application
  • How-To Choose Designations
  • Trademark Clearance Challenges
  • Understanding the Registration Process
  • What Can Go Wrong!
  • How-To Maintain Your Trademark

Holger will provide a legal perspective on the various challenges the WIPO registration process can present & share actionable insights on how to maintain your trademark effectively.

The webinar takes place on Wednesday, 26th April at 4:30 GMT / 11:30 EST and is free to attend. Register at https://www.trademarknow.com/wipo-masterclass-registration
