IP crime is estimated to be worth USD 461 billion annually worldwide (OECD/EUIPO): for some businesses this means substantial loss of revenue. What practical steps can you take to tackle IP crime? How can you tackle IP crime as part of a coherent IP strategy? What impact will regulatory changes (including Brexit) have on IP crime?
On 16 November the brands team at Hogan Lovells will be hosting a seminar in London that will look to answer some of these questions.
