The Parallel Imports Committee and the Anti-Counterfeiting Committee of the International Trademark Association (INTA), Hogan Lovells (CIS) and the Coalition for Intellectual Property Rights (CIPR) are delighted to invite you and your colleagues to participate in a seminar on "Parallel Imports and Trademark Protections in the Common Economic zone of the Customs Union."
The purpose of the seminar is to better understand trademark protection exposures under the Customs Union and from potential legislative changes that would allow more favorable treatment of parallel import in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, as well as to offer practical trademark protection strategies for addressing these challenges.
The speakers will include Russian government officials, IP legal experts focusing on trademark protection from Russia, and experts providing input on U.S. and EU parallel import trademark law as a point of comparison with proposals for the treatment of this issue in the Customs Union.
Confirmed speakers on behalf of INTA:
