WIPO Roving Seminars: coming to England and Scotland

Are you looking to take your business overseas but not sure how to protect your intellectual property rights? Or do you represent businesses and want to hear about the latest developments in global IP systems? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes", you will be pleased to know that MARQUES's friends at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) are working hard not just to produce the answers but to take them to the people who need them.

The mechanism chosen by WIPO for this purpose is its current highly popular and successful series of Roving Seminars, three of which have been planned for locations across the United Kingdom.

In this one-off series of events, senior WIPO representatives will lead an interactive programme of discussions that are sure to be of interest to anyone involved in the international protection of IP rights. The half-day events will provide an introduction to WIPO services and initiatives, including international systems for the protection of IP rights, alternative dispute resolution, and infrastructure for the exchange of IP information. There will be plenty of opportunity for debate and discussion, as well as interaction with the UK Intellectual Property Office and local business representatives.

A full programme will shortly be made available. Meanwhile, Class 46 can tell you that dates and venues for the three seminars have already been confirmed as follows:

  • 6 October 2014: British Library, London
  • 8 October 2014: Central Library, Manchester
  • 9 October 2014: Mitchell Library, Glasgow

To register your interest, just email with the subject heading ‘WIPO Seminar Registration – London/Manchester/ Glasgow' (delete as appropriate), giving a contact email address and phone number. Space at the seminars is strictly limited so early registration is strongly encouraged if you want to avoid disappointment.
