BMM Autumn meeting 2020

Turbulent times: Between bad faith registrations and online hassle

Friday . 27 November 2020

Welcome to the website of the BMM Autumn Meeting 2020: “Turbulent times: between bad faith registrations and online hassle”. The event will be held online on Friday 27 November 2020. During the event we will be ‘surfing’ from the traditional CJEU case law overview (which partly deals with judgments related to IP in an online context) towards a journey through competence and applicable law with respect to online IP infringements. Last, attention will be paid to the impact on our trademark future after the high-profile CJEU Sky vs. SkyKick judgment. On this website you will find all necessary information about the conference, including the online subscription form.

We hope to welcome you at this special online edition of our BMM Autumn Meeting!
