Title:

EUTM courts: the distinctive functioning of a characteristic court

Level:

Intermediate

Language:

English

Speakers:

Elisabeth DAEM - DLA PIPER

Alexis FIERENS - DLA PIPER

Description:

In the European Union, unitary trademarks valid throughout the EU have been established through the EU Trademark Regulation (EUTMR), which has its own jurisdictional regime. The EUTMR does not establish a separate court system, but for infringement actions it grants international jurisdiction to certain specified courts, the EU trade mark courts, which are national courts functioning as EU courts in the adjudication of disputes involving unitary EU trademark rights. In this webinar, an overview and evaluation will be given of the establishment, the (international) jurisdiction and the procedure to follow before these courts in disputes concerning the validity and infringement of EU trade marks.
