    Event Synopsis:
    A trademark is a recognizable sign, symbol, and/or design that is legally registered or established to represent a company or product. Trade dress, is a type of trademark and a form of intellectual property that refers to the overall visual appearance, packaging and design of a product. Just like a trademark, trade dress is regulated under the Lanham Act and can be registered to signify the uniqueness of a certain product. A registered trade dress entitles the owner a nationwide constructive use, a notice over the trade dress that prevents others to use or register your trade dress and a 5-year "incontestable status", thereby, eliminating the possibility of someone challenging the owner's registration.

    However, due to lack of uniformity in the treatment of trade dress infringement claims, it is highly recommended for trade dress owners to carefully consider how courts address issues concerning trade dress and ensure a robust defense and remedies against possible risks and threats.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamental aspects of Trade Dress Rights Protection. Speakers will present the important issues and enforcement actions with respect to this significant topic.

    Key topics include:
    -Trade Dress Rights
    -Bases and Standards for Trade Dress Protection
    -Enforcement of Protectable Trade Dress
    -Requirements for Trade Dress Infringement
    -Pre-Filing Issues and Considerations
    -Addressing Trade Dress Infringement Claims
    -Best Practices for Enforcing Trade Dress Rights
