INTA: African Trademark issues highlighted

Managing Intellectual Property's roving INTA reporter Eklavya Gupta had this to say on yesterday's panel discussion, chaired by Chris Job, on African Trademark Issues at the INTA annual meeting in Berlin highlighted by Afro-Ip here in March: "Trademark enforcement can be quite a slow and tedious process in Africa, but with the trademark registration process becoming much easier, there has been an increase in registrations and multinationals are beginning to invest more money on the continent".

Afro-Ip attended this very informative session and hopes to provide readers with a link to the speakers' slides as soon as possible.

A few hours later, co-blogger Jeremy and Olswang hosted a very successful "4th Annual Meet the Bloggers" session on a rooftop terrace with views across Berlin.
