The Finnish AIPPI Group will organize in co-operation with FACG its triennial symposium on the topic of “Trade Dress Protection – A Land of Confusion?” on 31 March – 2 April 2011. The Symposium will be held in Lapland, Finland, at the Levi ski resort.

Most speakers of the Symposium are brand owners’ – such as Google’s and Nokia’s – representatives, but attorneys’ and academics’ perspectives on the topic will be covered as well. The Symposium will provide you with an excellent opportunity to meet IP attorneys, in-house counsel, brand managers and other experts within the field of IPR in an informal setting.
