Are there specific registrability requirements for pharmaceutical trademarks?
Students of the G. Benzi masters degree in regulatory affairs of the University of Pavia are going to find out on 3 July 2020 when trademark attorney Barbara Besati holds our yearly lecture on the subject (this year, the lesson will be held on line).
Barbara will focus first of all on the requirements a sign must meet in general in order to be registrable as a trademark as well as on what kinds of registration are available.
Moving on to 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 rewarding to engage with the students of the G. Benzi masters. We are proud to contribute to the training of professional figures in regulatory affairs that are in high demand both in the private sector and in public bodies dealing in the health and industrial sectors.
