Sydney, Australia – October 13-17, 2017












The world congress offers the chance for delegates from around the world to come together and not only discuss important developments in the world of Intellectual Property but also provides a great opportunity for networking, education and professional development.

Both Wayne Slater and Mark Metzeling represented IP Gateway this year by attending the Annual World Congress of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI), hosted this year in Sydney, Australia.

Mark was appointed as the Australian panellist for the session “Funny, bad taste or out of order? Morality and public order in trademarks”, which took place on Monday, October 16, 2017 – 14:00-15:30

This panel session canvassed decisions refusing or invalidating trademarks on different grounds
across jurisdictions, illustrating differing cultural or religious values and exploring when
trademarks should be refused or invalidated on such grounds.

If you have a Patent, Trade Mark or Design that you’d like to be protected or you want to discuss how to secure protection for your Intellectual Property with qualified award winning experts, please contact IP Gateway Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys on 07 38083566 or email us at mail@ipgateway.com.au
