"Fakes in Transit": advance notice

Mark your diaries for Tuesday 27 September 2011, when JIPLP will be holding an afternoon seminar, "Fakes in Transit", on the issues arising from the need to control the movement of counterfeit and infringing goods as they cross the territory of the European Union on their way from manufacturer to ultimate destination.

It is expected that this seminar will discuss, among other things, the Court of Justice rulings in Joined Cases C‑446/09 Koninklijke Philips Electronics NV v Lucheng Meijing Industrial Company Ltd, Far East Sourcing Ltd, Röhlig Hong Kong Ltd and Röhlig Belgium NV and C‑495/09 Nokia Corporation v Her Majesty’s Commissioners of Revenue and Customs, in which the Advocate General's Opinion was published last month.  The main speaker is JIPLP Editorial Board member Marius Schneider (pictured, above right), who is co-editor of Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights trough Border Measures - Law and Practice in the EU, with Olivier Vrins (Oxford University Press, 2006).

The seminar, which will be free and is expected to offer CPD points, is kindly hosted by the London office of Olswang LLP.  Refreshments will be provided.

Further details will be posted on this weblog once the full programme is available. If you'd like an email notification of the programme details once they've been finalised, email me here with the subject line 'Transit seminar'.
