IP Key China, in partnership with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), supported by the Delegation of the European Union to China and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), organised the Seminar on the Latest Developments in the Field of Trade Marks on 16 March 2022.
The Seminar focused on the legislation and practice of bad faith trade marks as well as on the protection and assessment of well-known and reputed ones.
