Amendments to Taiwan’s Trademark Act are now before the legislature. One key revision concerning enforcement is the incorporation into the law of border control measures currently set out in the Operational Directions for Customs Authorities in Implementing Measures for Protecting the Rights and Interests of Patent, Trademark and Copyright. Also of interest to rights owners are revisions to these measures that will facilitate the assessment of suspect goods held by Customs.  

With passage of the new Trademark Act on the horizon, this is a good opportunity to review border protection procedures, discuss implications of the proposed changes, and exchange experiences on border controls and overall trademark protection in Taiwan. Officials from Taiwan Customs, IPR Police and the Prosecutor’s Office have been invited to the roundtable to share insights and field questions on border protection measures.

Join us for good food and a lively discussion on the issue on April 28!

The roundtable will be conducted in Chinese.

Discussion Leader
Peter J. Dernbach, Winkler Partners (Taiwan)

Admittance to the roundtable (which includes lunch) is NT $1,500.
