Event type: Webinar
Date: Friday 3 July
Time: 10:30 AM (CEST) - 3:30 PM (ICT) - 3:00 PM (MMT)
2. Programme Synopsis:
Protecting your Intellectual Property (IP) should always be a priority and it’s even more important in uncertain difficult times like the current one, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Myanmar has gone through some radical changes in the IP law frame during 2019, however, the process is not completed yet. This poses an additional challenge to IP owners who want to register and protect their IP in the country.
Join our webinar on "Counterfeiting and Brand Protection during Covid-19 in Myanmar", co-organized by the European Chamber of Commerce in Myanmar (EuroCham Myanmar) and the South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk, to understand how you can protect yourself according to the current law and practice. How can you register your IP when there is no IP office? What is the impact of the pandemic on the number of fake goods?
Ms. Yuwadee Thean-Ngarm, External Expert of the SEA IPR SME Helpdesk; and also Director of Tilleke & Gibbins' office in Myanmar will guide you through these questions and will be happy to address more concerns and questions after the presentation.
