The future of non-traditional marks in Taiwan

The International Trademark Association’s (INTA) Asia Roundtables Project Team and Winkler Partners are proud to present a round table discussion on “The Future of Non-Traditional Marks in Taiwan”. Join us for good food and a lively discussion on the issue at the Formosa Regent on Friday, July 9, 2010.

Three-dimensional, color and sound trademarks currently enjoy protection under Taiwan’s Trademark Act. Proposed amendments to the law, however, would extend registration to other non-conventional marks such as motion, hologram, and scent marks. In this round table discussion we will examine the proposed changes and consider what the future holds for brand owners in the areas of trademark development and protection in Taiwan.

Discussion leader:

Peter J. Dernbach
