Abusive Trademark Registrations
June 24, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm
Michael Jordan, Donald Trump, and many other famous brands have encountered problems with trademarks for a range of goods and services that had been filed in China in advance of their legitimate owners. Over the past several years, the Chinese Trademark Office and the Chinese courts have taken significant steps to address the problem of abusive trademark registrations within the context of China’s ‘first to file’ regime, including reforms required by the “Phase 1” Trade Agreement (January 15, 2020).
This panel will consist of leading authorities from the Chinese and US trademark offices, as well as practitioners, who will introduce us to the problem of abusive trademark registration in China and the steps being taken to address it.
- Moderator: Prof. Eric Priest, University of Oregon
