Designs: Into the Future

Register today for INTA’s and AIPPI’s Designs: Into the Future Conference!

Join the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) and the International Trademark Association (INTA) in Singapore—a leading hub of commerce in Asia—for a look into the future of design law and practice. No longer the poor relation of trademarks, patents and copyright, designs have come into their own as a powerful tool in IP protection and enforcement. Meet with and learn from experts in the field, including government officials and brand owners. Sessions include:

  • Global protection strategies, and hot tips based on experience of how best to use the Hague Agreement to designate countries that have recently joined (including the United States and Japan);
  • Exploiting the overlap between design rights and other IP rights, notably trademarks, copyright and unfair competition/passing off;
  • A panel from industry experts on how they are using design protection to protect and grow their businesses;
  • Multi-jurisdictional disputes;
  • Alternatives to litigation, including hearing from experts in mediation and arbitration; and
  • Current issues in design law, including 3D printing and designs on-line.

Delegates will also hear from the AIPPI and INTA Design Rights Committees for an update on the lobbying and education efforts of both organizations.
