The Role of Border Measures in IP Enforcement

July 29, 2022 Virtual (English)
13:00 - 14:00 Geneva time
This webinar will address the role of customs authorities and border measures in the effective enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPRs).

The detection of IPR infringing goods originating from abroad, and suspending their release into free circulation at the point of entry is therefore crucial.
