Trade Dress Protection A Land of Confusion?
The Symposium will be held in Lapland, Finland,
at the Levi ski resort. The conference venue Levi Summit is situated
high on panoramic hillside of the Levi fell. Attached please
find the symposium program. The visual appearance of a product or
its features may be protected in various ways in different countries
by overlapping intellectual property rights. The challenge for IP
specialists is to overcome this inconsistency of protection and
to develop effective IP strategies by using tools available under
trademark, design, copyright and unfair competition law. Setting
exact parameters for the protection of websites, TV formats and
business methods entails similar challenges. The purpose of the
AIPPI Lapland Symposium 2011 is to look into how the multitude
of overlapping rights comes about and what the implications are.
The symposium delves deeply into these questions not only from a
legal perspective but also from an IP strategy and enforcement viewpoint.
The Symposium offers an excellent forum for IP attorneys, in-house
counsels, brand managers and academics to meet and discuss how the
leading companies and brands tackle these challenges in todays
world. For more information on the symposium, location and registration,
