Gibney IP Partner Angelo Mazza recently spoke the webinar entitled “The Tools of the Italian System for the Protection of Intellectual Property and the Fight Against Anticounterfeiting in the US”. The webinar covered the many brand protection options, public and private, that exist under the American system. Angelo directed his comments, in Italian, to the importance of law enforcement training as part of an overall approach to brand protection.
Sponsored by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, the Italian Trade Agency and the Guardia di Finanza and conducted in English and Italian, the webinar was aimed at Italian brands interested in entering the US market for the first time and the use of laws to protect their products and intellectual property. Other speakers represented National IPR Center, Guardia di Finanza, the IACC and the Italian Trade Agency.
