Trademark Enforcement in India: Challenges and Opportunities, Roundtable, Mumbai

The government of India released its National IPR Policy on May 12, 2016, with seven objectives aimed at incorporating and adapting global best practices to the Indian scenario. INTA and knowledge partners K&S Partners are organizing a half-day roundtable in Mumbai on March 16 to discuss the challenges that intellectual property (IP) rights holders continue to face in protecting their rights in India.

This roundtable will also deliberate on changes that would provide for better enjoinment, resulting in the enhanced protection of IP rights in India. Hear renowned panelists as they engage in discussions that impact IP: jurisdiction, border enforcement, and anticounterfeiting. High profile representatives from the judiciary, police, customs, industry, and IP practice are invited as panelists.

The roundtable will be held at Vivanta by Taj-President, 90 Cuffe Parade, Mumbai, and will begin at 2.30 pm on March 16. This event will conclude the 2018 INTA India Delegation, of which the 2018 INTA President, Tish Berard, and INTA CEO are a part.
