Join us for this webcast to hear two prominent IP judges from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, from two different court jurisdictions, as they discuss their experiences deciding cases involving trademark invalidation and infringement issues while working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The judges will discuss the following issues:

  • The difference of Court jurisdiction when requesting invalidation or arguing infringement;
  • The possibility of a suspension of an infringement lawsuit because an invalidation lawsuit has priority;
  • Recent trademark decisions;
  • Legal and procedural adaptations to continue working in full compliance with the guidelines from World Health Organization.

This webcast is brought to you by INTA’s Enforcement Committee’s Judges Workshop Task Force. 

(This webcast will be 75 minutes in length.)
