CIIR member in UK panel discussion on protection of innovation

Ass. Prof. Timo MinssenAss. Prof. Timo Minssen, will participate in a panel discussion on Secondary Protection of Innovation with leading UK and German attorneys. The seminar marks the cooperation between the prestigious UK and German journals JIPLP (Oxford University Press) and GRUR Int. (Max Planck Institut/Verlag C.H. Beck) and will be held at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP in London on Tuesday 22 January 2013.

The presentations and discussions will probe the scope of protection accorded to innovations by the German Gebrauchsmuster, its advantages and disadvantages, its attractiveness to Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises ('SMEs') and its possible role as a model for adoption elsewhere in Europe. Regard will also be had to the experiences of other jurisdictions in which innovation patents, utility models and petty patents are available.
