Are there specific registrability requirements for pharmaceutical trademarks?
Students of the G. Benzi masters degree in regulatory affairs of the University of Pavia are to find out on 4 October 2019 when we hold our yearly lecture on the subject.
Our trademark attorney Barbara Besati will explain first of all which requirements a sign must meet in general in order to be registrable as a trademark as well as what kinds of registration are available, before focusing on pharmaceutical trademarks in particular.
Barbara will review the notions of strong and weak trademark, the criteria for the assessment of novelty with regard both to the registration of pharmaceutical trademarks and to the marketing authorisation, and explain the notion of trademark lapse for lack of use.
Year after year, it is always stimulating to engage with the students of the G. Benzi masters and contribute to the training of professional figures in regulatory affairs that are in high demand both by the private sector and by public bodies dealing in the health and industrial sectors.
