This webinar is aimed at those that don’t routinely work in trade marks. It will provide a refresher on some core aspects of trade mark law and the law of passing off and how these overlap with other rights such as design rights and copyright. It will also touch on some recent cases involving the protection offered through the law of passing off for packaging and 3-dimensional products.
