Joint JIPLP-GRUR event: A Distinctive Mess? Current Trade Mark Law and Practice in the EU and UK

Since January 2013, the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP), which I co-edit with Stefano Barazza, Marius Schneider and Sarah Harris, has partnered with the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (GRUR) to exchange content between JIPLP and GRUR Int., as well as organising events aimed at IP enthusiasts - wherever based!

On Friday, 24 November 2017, JIPLP and GRUR are organising an half-day event devoted specifically to the latest trade mark developments and trends in the EU and UK.
