  • Inclusive Leadership: Recognizing and Defeating Our Unconscious Biases

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 05/21/2017

    All of us have unconscious biases—attitudes and stereotypes that we may not even be aware of or agree with, that can affect how we view and work with others, and act as potential hurdles to successful leadership and teamwork.

    Pre-recorded from INTA's 2017 Annual Meeting. 

    This interactive session will explore how to recognize, and overcome, the negative effects of such biases, and foster a more inclusive and effective teamwork environment. In addition, the speakers will explore how diverse teams can deliver better results.

  • Anticounterfeiting Resources: Recordation Tools for Brand Owners

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    A valuable anticounterfeiting tool is customs recordation systems. INTA believes that these systems are a basic need for customs officials to easily identify counterfeit goods. The ability to record trademark rights, methods of identification of genuine goods, and contact information of the brand owners will make it easier for customs officials to work with the private industry to protect their borders.

    This webcast will highlight two such tools to get your brand’s information to the most officials possible through the World Customs Organization’s (WCO) global Interface Public-Members (IPM) platform and the European Union Intellectual Property Office’s (EUIPO) regional Enforcement Database (EDB).

    The Interface Public-Members (IPM) platform is WCO’s web and mobile platform allowing rights holders to share relevant product information and the only global security solution gateway allowing customs officers to verify the authenticity of products online. IPM allows brands operational data to be communicated directly to customs officers, facilitating the identification of counterfeit goods.

    The IPM service was quite expensive in the past, but now is more affordable for rights holders. A special discount will also be given to INTA members. WCO’s Bob Peeters will tell you more about the IPM tool and give you more information about the discount.

    Developed and run by the EUIPO, the EDB contains information on products that have been granted an intellectual property right, like a registered trade mark or design. Police and customs officials of the 28 Member States can access this tool to view information and product details, making it easier for them to identify counterfeits and take action.

    Any IP right owner can be part of the EDB; you just need to enter information about your products into the database and connect it to your IP rights. The EDB is free for all trademark owners. EUIPO’s Blanca Arteche will show how EDB works and why every trademark owner should participate.

  • Where Am I? Transporting Your Trademark Career to a Different Country

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 05/23/2016

    It is often said that the world is a global village, and in the world of trademarks this is now truer than ever. This session highlights the benefits to corporations, service providers and law firms of having expats, with their unique skills and experiences, on their team.

    Pre-recorded from INTA's 2016 Annual Meeting. 

    It is often said that the world is a global village, and in the world of trademarks this is now truer than ever. This session highlights the benefits to corporations, service providers and law firms of having expats, with their unique skills and experiences, on their team. It will also address the feasibility of transferring licenses to practice in other countries and ways to continue your career without a local license. Expats who have successfully transferred their careers cross border will share their experiences. Challenges and pitfalls to such a professional move are all part of the journey and will also be discussed.

    The panel consists of a lawyer from the US who started his own firm in Brazil, an Australian lawyer who immigrated to the US and worked initially in law firms and now is with an international legal service provider, a lawyer from South Africa who is now in-house counsel in Europe and a New Zealand lawyer who is now partner in an international law firm, with her office located in Dubai.

    Discussion points will include:

    • What are the unique skills that expats bring to corporations, firms and service providers?
    • Transferring and applying “local” trademark knowledge to a career in a different country.
    • Must one obtain a local law license to work in the trademark field in a country other than where they initially qualified?
    • Ethical considerations in being subject to two separate and possibly conflicting ethical guidelines.
