It will also identify the five bases for filing a US trade mark application and outline the differences between use-based common law rights versus registered rights. Attendees will develop their understanding of the differences between remedies, jurisdiction and the likelihood of confusion standards in the US trade mark office, in comparison to civil court proceedings.
