Bristows’ Jeremy Blum will be attending the 31st MARQUES Annual Conference on 19 to 22 September 2017 in Prague.
The 31st MARQUES Annual Conference will look at how brands are shaped by cultural, political and social influences. IP rights are today more prominent worldwide, and consumers are more engaged. That results in growing tensions between trade marks and other IP rights, on one hand, and free speech, cultural sensitivities and political considerations, on the other. These tensions will be explored over the three days of the Conference.
