Live webinar


The latest installment in our Lifecycle of a Smart Idea series will shine a light on global trademark cancellation strategies. Specifically, panelists will explore how to defend against / avoid cancellation brought against your marks, as well as how to use cancellation proceedings offensively to remove potential problematic marks. The panel will also discuss what evidence needs to be gathered, the limits of differentiating marks, and circumstances that may excuse non-use.

Post-webinar breakout rooms

Immediately following the webinar, we invite you to join our panellists in virtual breakout rooms where you will have the opportunity to ask direct questions and participate in a discussion with other attendees.

This is the 17th installment in our Lifecycle of a Smart Idea series, dedicated to helping you maximise opportunity and minimise risk when taking innovative ideas to the global market. Watch more from the series »
