EDB Forum registration is now open

As previously mentioned on this blog, the 2018 EDB Forum will take place in Alicante on 13 and 14 June. You can now register to attend this event here.

The EUIPO EDB team has sent the following information about the EDB Forum, which we reproduce with their permission:

The EDB Forum is a unique opportunity for rights holders to meet face-to-face with enforcement authorities who daily deal with counterfeiting in the different EU countries.

We have planned a number of technical meetings that will focus on specific topics such as:

  • Best practices in detentions of products from MULTIPLE RIGHTSHOLDERS;
  • CERTIFICATION MARKS and the new role of certification bodies in enforcement;
  • INTELLIGENCE SHARING between right holders and enforcers: zero tolerance or minimum quantity? Transit? Best practices in information sharing.

The exhibition on counterfeits will be running this year.

The participation is free of charge for EDB users and the registration can be done in parallel to the account creation.

For questions, do not hesitate to contact the EDB team at observatory.edb@euipo.europa.eu

More information is available on the 2018 EDB Forum website.
