This seminar was jointly organised by the AL-INVEST Verde IPR project, the Intellectual Property Directorate of the Supreme Court of Paraguay and the National Directorate of Intellectual Property of Paraguay (DINAPI), with the collaboration of the International Trademark Association (INTA).

The activity consisted of 2 full days and will cover:

  • specific case studies of trade mark infringement;
  • exchange of experience and good practice in resolving cases;
