Invitation to INTA Roundtable and Pre-Annual Meeting Reception in Munich

 Announcement in German

We are very pleased to announce Professor Dr. Helmut Köhler as our lecturer, who will speak on the following topic: Direct versus vicarious liability/accessory to infringement in Trademark and Unfair Competition Law

The chambers of the German Federal Supreme Court have each developed their own different dogmatic approaches to  the liability of a person who contributes to an IP infringement without being a direct perpetrator.  Particularly, the decision, "Kinderhochstühle", delivered by the I. Senate, and the "MP3 Player Import" decision delivered by the Xa. Senate in a patent infringement case, have been the subject of controversial discussion and highlight the need for a more uniform and consistent approach to indirect infringement.

Following the lecture, please join us for INTA’s Pre-Annual Meeting Reception in Munich, planned exclusively for you and your colleagues to learn more about INTA's 2011 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
