Arbitration of Trademark Disputes: Why Brand Owners (And Their Counsel) Should Use It and How It Works
Recorded On: 11/30/2022
Please join us for this program hosted by the International Trademark Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee (through its Arbitration Subcommittee). You will hear from seasoned IP attorneys experienced in resolving trademark disputes through arbitration in key jurisdictions, including the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Each speaker will give a brief overview of arbitration practices in their territory, followed by a moderated discussion.
Topics to be addressed include:
1. How trademark arbitration works—the nuts and bolts of the process.
2. Arbitration agreements in international and domestic trademark licenses.
3. Cultural differences in trademark arbitration from the perspective of the arbitrators and the parties.
4. Evaluation of the benefits and limitations of arbitration in trademark disputes.
Who should attend: Brand owners, trademark licensees, in-house counsel and outside counsel seeking tips and recommendations on why they should arbitrate (not litigate) trademark and licensing disputes—with a focus on cross-border scenarios—and how to make the process work for them—whether in-person, virtually, or a combination of the two.
