WIPO webinar on resolving sports disputes

Readers might be interested in a webinar that WIPO is hosting on 9 May, which ties in with the theme of this year's World IP Day. The following information is from Leandro Toscano, Head, Business Development Unit,
WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center:

Disputes in the sports arena often relate to IP rights, including highly valuable trademarks, patented technologies, and copyright and related rights. Such disputes may arise in the context of, for example, licensing and distribution of sports goods, sports broadcasting and media, sponsorship, merchandising and endorsement agreements.

Although IP and sports-related disputes can be resolved through court litigation, parties are, with increasing frequency, submitting disputes to mediation, arbitration or other ADR procedures.

The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center offers ADR options to enable private parties to efficiently settle their domestic or cross-border commercial disputes. The WIPO Center is international and specialized in IP and technology disputes, including growing number of sports-related disputes.
In this webinar, you will learn how to benefit from WIPO’s ADR services in order to reduce the impact of IP and sports-related disputes.
Who should attend this webinar? Sports goods manufacturers, sports organizations and federations, broadcasters and media companies, sponsors, athletes, business executives, other IP owners and their legal counsel.
