POF seminar: From import to export – trade marks and the supply chain

Please note that this event has already occurred. Go back to events to see upcoming events.

Counterfeit products, grey market goods and the misuse of trade marks are some of the problems Australian companies face due to largely off-shore supply chains. Trade mark registration and enforcement are just two of many tools used to preserve supply chain integrity and guard against IP theft. In this seminar, we will discuss:

  • how, when and where to seek trade mark protection overseas;
  • tips to minimise IP violations within the supply chain; and
  • how enforce your rights including working with Customs.
