Benefits and Challenges of International Trademark Registrations
About this Program
A company’s corporate trademarks are the key to its business success and filing for U.S. trademark protection is a given, but when should corporations also file international trademark registrations. Intellectual Property practitioner Nicholas Wells will provide an overview of International Trademark basics including strategic considerations, international filing process and assisting non-US clients interested in U.S. trademark protection. With special focus on the multi-national methods of filing (Community Trade Mark and the Madrid Protocol) Wells discusses the costs and best practices for these different methods and provides a comparison of these methods to that of the direct filing. After watching this program, you will be able to counsel your U.S. and foreign clients on whether or not their trademarks warrant U.S. and international protection and the exact procedures to successfully register their intellectual property.
