Trade mark disputes and alcohol brands – a ‘Case and Taste’ twilight seminar with networking drinks
At this seminar, we will focus on trade mark disputes in relation to alcohol brands as we discuss a number of trade mark case studies that highlight the do’s and don’ts of alcohol branding as well as the repercussions of coming under the influence of the courts. There will also be an opportunity to sample the beverages discussed in the case studies.
Specifically, the presenters will cover:
- Shapes as trade marks (Oyster Bay)
- Geographic references in trade marks (Barossa Valley, Tanunda Hills)
- Keeping your opposition evidence on the straight and narrow (Wayward)
- Remedies and enforcement: the consequences of hitting the wrong note on wine labels (Brookland Valley’s Verse 1) or when wine unexpectedly stomps on beer (Lion Nathan’s Barefoot Radler)
- Plus helpful tips on selecting and protecting registrable trade marks
The seminar will be approximately 1 hour.
