Expanding into Southeast Asia can be a vital—and profitable—step for many businesses. However, the trademark laws in the region are as varied as the cuisines. In this webinar, Mary Thomas, a trademark attorney in both Singapore and Malaysia, will provide an overview of trademark laws in the region. Specifically, she’ll discuss requirements in The Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. She’ll walk you through the countries’ filing and use requirements, examination procedures, priority determinations, and other important factors—and quirks—you’ll need to know about when applying. Among other topics, she’ll address:
- Use requirements and Madrid filings in The Philippines
- Indonesia’s first-to-file priority, including how to protect against squatters
- Standard characters and their implications in Thailand
Everyone who’s registered for this webinar will receive an email with a link to the recording.
