“THE CHALLENGES OF SECURING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS IN EMERGING MARKETS”

The so-called BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are holding an IP FORUM in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from the 2nd until the 5th of December. The title of the forum (title of today's post) appears to invite the audience to be aware of the IP system in these countries.

Speakers are mostly advocates and also officers from Trade mark/Patent Institutes. Apart from the issue of these four countries, there is going to be three more general sessions regarding IP in Latin America. For these sessions lawyers from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Venezuela will discuss hot topics such as: trade mark fair use, parallel imports and border measures.

Registration is now open.
