Enhancing TM protection on e-commerce marketplaces: workshop
Representatives from e-commerce marketplaces and the EUIPO will meet in Alicante on 25 February for a first exploratory workshop.
The workshop will focus on EU trade mark (EUTM) rights, and will be structured around three main issues — information resources on trade mark rights, access to the IP protection programmes of e-commerce marketplaces and exchange of information, all with the aim of enhancing trade mark protection on e-commerce marketplaces.
This first gathering will pave the way for a broader event and discussions with IP owners, and will centre on the discussion of opportunities and concrete actions to jointly develop the EUIPO’s initiatives envisioned in its Strategic Plan 2025 to adapt its services to the growth of e-commerce.
The workshop will also offer an opportunity for the EUIPO and e-commerce marketplaces to present information resources and initiatives, and explore how they could develop cooperation to promote and facilitate access to trade mark rights with e-commerce focused SMEs.
Representatives from e-commerce marketplaces interested in participating are invited to contact email@example.com
