Speaker: Andrew J. Clay, Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP
This talk will summarise the current law on parallel imports, explaining how the concepts of exhaustion, consent and legitimate reasons for opposing further dealings in branded goods have been developed into a complex but flexible body of legal rules. The recent criminal parallel imports case of R v C and others will also be considered. The session will conclude by considering how different Brexit scenarios (Hard Brexit, Brexit Light etc.) may impact on the rights which trade mark owners have in relation to goods moving into and out of the UK from the other 27 EU Member States.
