WIPO Seminar on Industrial Designs
4th November, 2011, Geneva
The World Intellectual Property Organization is organising a seminar on the Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs in Geneva on 4th November, 2011.
The seminar aims at increasing awareness and practical knowledge of the system among actual and potential users. The seminar will also focus on the needs of independent and in-house industrial property agents who file applications for international industrial design registrations and who administer such registrations. It will cover all aspects of the Hague system, including legal and practical matters like main features and advantages of the system and procedures as well as the latest trends in the field of international industrial design registration.
The Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs enables users to obtain protection for their industrial designs in several territories by means of a single application made with the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). At present, 57 States, as well as the European Union and the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI), are members of the Hague system.
