Mr. Katz will join a panel discussion “International Developments in Design Law” at the 14th Open Forum presented by the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI).
Two design-related milestones have recently been achieved – the 10 year anniversary of the registered European Community Design Right and the implementation of the Hague Agreement for Industrial Designs by the United States. Some aspects of design law under both the EC Design Right and the Hague Agreement have been decided over the last decade; some remain uncertain. Procedural and strategic aspects of using the Hague agreement as a filing tool, and filing strategies to maximize protection and avoid pitfalls in the United States, will be discussed.
