Head of our IP Practice Peter Dernbach was recently interviewed on IP Fridays, a weekly podcast covering intellectual property topics hosted by Ken Suzan, of counsel at Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Minneapolis, USA, and Dr. Rolf Claessen, partner at Patent Attorneys Freischem in Cologne, Germany.
In the twenty minute interview, Peter discussed the upcoming International Trademark Association (INTA) Annual Meeting being held in Orlando 21-25 May, which Peter will be co-chairing together with Rick McMurtry of Turner Broadcasting. Peter said he is most excited about the substantive programming, as he knows how much work went into planning it and is confident that a range of diverse topics will be on offer to interest the nearly 10,000 trademark professionals expected to attend. Peter was also asked about the issues facing trademark lawyers and brands in recent years, and said that while progress has been made on several fronts, intellectual property rights in the digital world remains a significant challenge.
