Cooperation with Lithuanian Patent Bureau


A senior expert from the EUIPO’s Observatory attended the third training session on the fight against counterfeiting, co-organised with the State Patent Bureau of the Republic of Lithuania.

Among the speakers were well-known Lithuanian experts and prosecutors, as well as a Dutch criminal judge, a Greek prosecutor and a film industry investigator. The Observatory expert gave two presentations on the state of IPR violation and on virtual currencies and the darknet. Around 70 participants from Lithuania (judges, prosecutors, police officers and customs officers) attended this very successful two-day training session, co-organised by the SPB and the EUIPO’s Observatory.
