    Event Synopsis:
    The growing number of signatory countries to the Hague Agreement depicts the treaty's efficiency in protecting design patents across the globe. The Hague Agreement is an international treaty that provides a design protection registration system for designated member countries and intergovernmental organizations. The design protection can be obtained by applicants by filing a standardized international design patent application with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

    While the system successfully provides US and foreign applicants with new cost-effective means and opportunities to protect their designs, the risks in design filings are still waiting around the corner. Thus, it is with great importance that counsel and patent practitioners fully understand the international design application (IDAs) process to ward off potential pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to the Hague Agreement and Design Filings. Speakers will also offer best practices in maximizing the benefits of the design protection system while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    • The Hague Agreement - An Overview
    • Intricacies of Hague Design Filings
    • Benefits and Pitfalls
    • Critical Issues and Legal Hurdles
