Webinar: Sky vs SkyKick - don’t panic, but prepare!

Webinar hosted by Alan Potter

In Sky v SkyKick, both the Advocate General and the CJEU considered whether a registered trademark can be invalidated if the specification lacks clarity and precision.

Although the CJEU didn’t go as far as the Advocate General recommended, trademark practitioners need to be prepared for a new wave of attacks on trademarks for specifications that lack “clarity and precision” and expect that IP offices will tighten up on their acceptance of acceptable goods and services terms.

In this webinar - the third in our ongoing series, Alan Potter talks about the SkyKick case, the implications for today's world and how you can prepare for them.
