The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) organizes a Seminar on the Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs at its headquarters in Geneva, on October 31, 2013.
The aim of the event is to increase awareness and practical knowledge of the Hague system among existing and potential users, whether in industry or in private practice. The needs of independent and in house industrial property agents (paralegals, as well as attorneys) who both file applications for and administer international industrial design registrations will also be addressed. All aspects of the Hague system will be covered, including legal and practical matters (the main features and advantages of the Hague system, different procedures, etc.), as well as the latest trends in the field of international industrial design registration.
