The Bar Council Intellectual Property Committee (“IPC”) welcomes you to our seminar entitled “Sniffing Out Trouble: Trademark Infringements and the Trademarks Act 2019”, a riveting event that delves into the intricate world of trademark law in Malaysia. After witnessing the Trademarks Act 2019 in action for the past three years, this seminar aims to examine the implementation and application of the provisions under the new Act as compared to its predecessor, the Trade Marks Act 1976. This seminar will host an in-depth discussion and an interactive case study on this topic, and unravel the complexities of trademark infringements in the modern legal landscape. Stay ahead of the curve, gain valuable insights, and sharpen your legal acumen as we navigate this evolving terrain together.
