Trade mark and passing off actions are common, but so is the propensity for litigators to fall foul of their nuances and intricacies.

This new virtual classroom seminar will provide a guide on how to enforce trade mark rights and passing off claims in the commonly used forums.

You will also be provided with a valuable insight into post-Brexit considerations and recent case law.

The session is suitable for both solicitors and trade mark attorneys with a working knowledge of trade mark and passing off law.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Case management in the IPEC
  • Case management in the High Court
  • Scale costs in the IPEC, how strict are they and are ‘off-scale’ costs ever awarded?
  • Pre-action conduct and how it impacts on claims in the IPEC
  • Groundless threats actions, how threatening are they in practice?
  • Passing off and claims concerning get-up
  • The interesting concept of ‘post-sale confusion’
  • Exhaustion of trade mark rights post-Brexit
  • An outline of the practice and procedure for opposition and invalidity actions at the UK Intellectual Property Office
  • An examination into how the end of the Brexit transition period has impacted proceedings at the UK Intellectual Property Office and the assessment of registered trade marks
