The World Sport Law & IP Forum is the premier event supporting creative partnerships in the sports industry through patenting, licensing, distribution and investment. The event is bringing together the most influential brand owners, IP owners, consumer goods manufacturers, licensees and licensed goods retailers and sport legal professionals. Sports are becoming the subject of economical exploitation in the last two decades and it is not surprising that IP rights now play an important role in financial transactions.
The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in brand owners struggling to protect their IP rights. The attendees will gain an in-depth understanding regarding the most important topics of the sport industry in order to alter and strengthen your legal strategies and tailor your techniques to the latest challenges.
The forum is the meeting place to identify sport trends or network with the right people in the industry. Find the right partners to expand, protect your brand and your IPR.
As Prof. Jacques de Werra says: If intellectual property has something to learn from the sports industry, it can conversely be considered that the sports industry may have something to gain from the assimilation of the key values of IP law
