HGF Complete webinar: comparison of registered and unregistered design rights procedures before the EUIPO and UKIPO

March 2022

Event date: 19th May 2022

HGF is hosting a series of HGF Complete webinars this Spring.

Our expert speakers will discuss trade marks and designs in the EU and the UK. We will compare and contrast the EUIPO and UKIPO and share our views on Benelux IP Office and German IP Office practices.

Comparison of registered and unregistered design rights procedures before the EUIPO and UKIPO

A comparison of the registered and unregistered rights available for the protection of designs in the United Kingdom, Benelux and Germany. We will compare and contrast the rights which are available to design owners in those states and the EUIPO. What is the evidential burden in proving such rights and practical tips on enforcing them? We will also have a discussion of how unregistered design rights can be established in the EU and whether first disclosure is needed in the EU for such rights to be established.

Speakers

Alexander Hagen – Partner & Trade Mark Attorney

Pieter de Ruijter – Partner & Trade Mark Attorney

Jan Robert Naefe – Partner & Patent Attorney

Alastair Blake – Senior Patent Attorney
