Annual Brands Seminar - Combatting IP Crime

Thursday, 16 November 2017
17:30 pm - 19:30 pm
London

IP crime is estimated to be worth USD 461 billion annually worldwide (OECD/EUIPO): for some businesses this means substantial loss of revenue. What practical steps can you take to tackle IP crime? What impact will regulatory changes (including Brexit) have on IP crime? How do you address IP crime while maintaining a coherent IP strategy?

On 16 November we will be hosting a seminar that will look to answer some of these questions.
