Trade Dress Infringement under Turkish Law

Though trade dress infringement is not regulated under Turkish law, unfair competition provisions of Turkish Code of Commerce provide effective protection. In addition there are circumstances that other IP laws may be a legal basis against trade dress infringement.

This roundtable aims to bring together professionals, both trademark attorneys and attorneys at law, who will discuss the legal basis and the practical aspects in trade dress infringement. The guest speaker Mr Tamer Pekdinçer is an assistant professor at Marmara University Law Faculty and has a vast experience in relation to what is going on in practice as he is one of the experts appointed by the Courts in legal proceedings. Mr. Pekdinçer will explain the legal basis of the protection granted for trade dress of a certain product/service. Other guest speaker, Ms. Ebru Güzelderen  is an assistant professor at Mimar Sinan University  Department of Industrial Design and she is also one of the Court appointed experts in legal proceedings. She will discuss the technical aspects that should be taken into account while assessing the similarity between the original product and the lookalike in determining trade dress infringement.
