Master the Hague Agreement with us!
"Mastering The Hague Agrement: From Asia to the USA, through the EU" is the title of an event coming up on Tuesday, 25 April 2017 at the Platzl Hotel Munich, Sparkassenstrasse 10, 80331 Munich, Germany, and hosted by Meissner Bolte. It's part of a series of local events which MARQUES is holding in collaboration with our friends at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
According to the ever-informative MARQUES website:
The Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Design offers the possibility to obtain protection for industrial designs in over 80 countries by a single application filed with WIPO. The international application replaces the filing of multiple local applications with different national or regional offices and, thus, helps to save time and money. However, the Hague Agreement only provides for a centralized and standardized registration mechanism at an international level, not for a uniform design law. Therefore, whilst individual formal requirements are set aside, the different substantive requirements in examining jurisdictions may continue to have an impact on the registration process under the Hague System and thus need to be considered at the time of filing.
The objective of the Seminar, run by MARQUES in collaboration with WIPO, is to give users the opportunity to learn more about the functioning of the Hague System and how to use it in practice. Particularly, the Seminar will focus on the recent experience in respect of designations of Japan, the Republic of Korea or the United States of America to provide European users with some feedback and guidance.
