MARQUES coexistence workshop reaches Mexico

Since this weblog has just touched upon the subject of trade mark coexistence agreements (in Peru), it is relevant to add that this very topic is the subject of a forthcoming event in Latin America: it's a workshop held under the auspices of MARQUES, the European trade mark organisation. According to the MARQUES Class 46 weblog,
"Launched a couple of years ago as nothing more than an experiment in showing how trade mark negotiation skills can be enhanced, the MARQUES Trade Mark Coexistence Agreement Workshop has grown wings and now it has flown all the way to Mexico.

This challenging yet enjoyable workshop will take place later this month, on Thursday 26 February 2015, at the Hotel Fiesta Inn Insurgentes Sur, Mercaderes 20, San José Insurgentes, Mexico City 03900, Mexico. It will, appropriately, be conducted entirely in Spanish. To remind readers of what the workshop is all about, MARQUES tells us that
The objective of this workshop will be to sensitise participants to the commercial and legal issues that arise when the potential conflict of two or more businesses with similar brands and trade marks may be avoided by negotiating a prior rights agreement (‘coexistence agreement’).
The registration fee for this meeting is a mere €25, which makes it an absolute bargain. Further information and registration details can be obtained by clicking here".
