> Webinar on “Effective design protection in companies”

On 06.10.2020 at 12 o’clock a webinar (zoom) will again be organized by the Institute for Information, Telecommunication and Media Law (ITM) – civil law department, Prof. Dr. Thomas Hoeren. All interested parties can take part in the ca. one-hour seminar free of charge.

The guest will be Ms. Hanna Karin Held, attorney at law and specialist for intellectual property rights. She has been working in the field of intellectual property for almost 15 years and has a focus on design law. As a lawyer, she has worked in various law firms as well as legal departments of international companies.

Ms. Held will give a lecture on the effective protection of designs in companies:
Design rights are valuable assets for many companies, which are often underestimated. The cooperation between designers and the legal department often resembles a balancing act. To achieve effective design protection, it makes sense to establish a design process in the company in which designers and lawyers work hand in hand. The avoidance of pre-publications that are detrimental to novelty, the search for previously known forms and the coordination of international applications play an important role in this process and will be the subject of this lecture.

To participate, please send an e-mail to Oliver Lampe (o_lamp01@uni-muenster.de) by 27.09.2020. You will receive the registration data for the webinar after the registration deadline. You are welcome to ask questions about the topic in advance.
