EUIPO-OBI regional seminar on Registered Community Designs

    The EUIPO and the Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation (OBI) are holding a Regional Seminar on Registered Community Designs in Athens from 10 to 11 June.

    Over two days, experts from the EUIPO and OBI will raise awareness of the protection provided by the registered Community design (RCD) system and the Greek national design system through experience-sharing sessions, as well as through demonstrations of the DesignView and DesignClass tools developed under the European Union Intellectual Property Network.

    The seminar will also facilitate discussions on common practices in designs for the benefit of users, conflicts between trade marks and RCDs, the issue of 3D printing, as well as a panel discussion on the review of industrial design protection in Europe.

    The objective of the event is to bring together professional representatives in Greece as well as staff from the IP Offices of Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, the Candidate Countries (Albania, Montenegro, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey) and the Potential Candidate Country, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
