Trademark Attorney Yoko Miyamoto Attended INTA Annual Meeting
Yoko Miyamoto, one of our trademark attorneys at Sakamoto and Partners, recently attended the INTA Annual Meeting that started on May 19, 2018 and was held in Seattle, Washington, USA.
The INTA Annual Meeting is the world’s largest trademark event with more than 10,000 trademark practitioners from more than 150 countries joined together to listen to intellectual property experts speak, and to learn more about the trademark laws and application statuses from other countries.
This year the main focus of the Annual Meeting was on how to best protect brand designs and also on increasing the number of members that are part of the Madrid Protocol.
Also during the session of the TM5 (The Patent Offices of Japan, the U.S. Europe, China, and South Korea) shared information on case studies related to non-traditional trademark examination practices in each country.
