This live session is part of a series of webinars which aim to highlight the importance of intellectual property (IP) in the development of businesses in today’s world. Particularly, the focus will revolve around the relationship between businesses and the Internet. We will analyze how companies commonly sharing market interests over trademarks, copyrights, geographic indications, industrial designs, patents, etc. can benefit from or be damaged by digital channels. Furthermore, we will discuss opportunities and challenges when it comes to IP protection online.
