> LIDC webinar with Ms. Held, attorney at law, on “Effective design protection in companies”

On October 6, 2020, attorney Hanna Karin Held gave a lecture on “Effective design protection in companies” at the invitation of the ITM (Münster) via Zoom. She had also invited the German Association for Competition Law and the LIDC. Ms. Held is a lawyer and specialist in intellectual property law who has been working in the field of intellectual property for almost 15 years and has a professional focus on European and international design law. She has worked as a lawyer in various law firms and legal departments of international companies.
In her one-hour lecture, Ms. Held emphasized the constantly growing importance of European design law for companies and therefore first of all explained the legal foundations of EU design law in the context of copyright law, unfair competition law and trademark law to the approximately 100 listeners. In the main part of the lecture, she then gave a comprehensive presentation of how the design process can be shaped in companies. The whole thing was illustrated by numerous example cases and a concluding quiz.
We would especially like to thank Ms. Held for the interesting lecture as well as the numerous participants who also diligently took part in the interactive surveys.
The next LIDC webinar is already planned: This will take place on 24.11.2020 with Prof. Dr. Peter Chrocziel on the topic FRAND
