MASTERING THE HAGUE AGREEMENT
Thursday, 6th June 2019
Bugnion S p A, Viale Lancetti, 17, Milano, Italy
Part of a Series of local events –
hosted by MARQUES in collaboration with WIPO
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, hosted 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.
The cost of this seminar is €75
Please note some sections of this programme will
be conducted in English, please refer to the programme for more information.
