WIPO webinar on border measures
The third instalment in the WIPO Respect for IP webinar series takes place on Friday 29 July from 1.00 pm to 2.00 pm CEST.
It is on ‘The Role of Border Measures in IP Enforcement’.
This webinar will address the role of customs authorities and border measures in the effective enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPRs).
IPR infringing goods, and especially counterfeit trademark and pirated copyright goods, harm the economy of the country of destination and threaten the health, security and safety of its population. The detection of IPR infringing goods originating from abroad, and suspending their release into free circulation at the point of entry is therefore crucial.
The session will also present IP border enforcement from an international perspective, specifically focusing on international cooperation among customs authorities.
The speakers are Ms Alaina van Horn (Chief, IP Enforcement Branch, US Customs and Border Protection, USA) and Mr Maurice Adefalou (Technical Officer IPR, Health and Safety Programme Manager, WCO).
The webinar will include a Q&A.
