Recently, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) organized a training programme namely, JPO/IPR Training for IP Protection Lawyers in Tokyo. The training session which saw the presence of several IP lawyers from Brazil, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, Malaysia, China and India took place from October 4 to October 24, 2015.
Managing Associate Advocate, Mrs. Lucy Rana from S.S. Rana & Co. participated in the training programme wherein she interacted with IP protection lawyers from other countries and discussed on myriad IP related topics like trademark infringement remedies in different countries, the scope of protection, advantages and disadvantages of the measures adopted in cases of trademark infringement and the scope of improvement in the existing system of IP protection in different countries.
Mrs. Rana also presented a recent case study dealing with the issues of trademark infringement, well-known trademarks and deceptive similarity of marks. According to Mrs. Rana the training session on IPR organized by JPO was very educative, interactive, collaborative and certainly helpful in incorporating changes and adopting best practices for making the present IP protection system in India more conducive and beneficial for IP holders.
