The speakers will discuss partial designs in their respective jurisdictions and will highlight the different approaches to partial designs in their countries. 

Not all jurisdictions allow the registration of partial designs

Not all jurisdictions allow the registration of partial designs, so FICPI's Study & Work Group on Designs (CET 2) conducted research amongst their members around how their jurisdictions face this matter. 
The research developed into a Position Paper, with different point of views of the PTOs around the world. 
The webinar will debate the importance of partial designs protection, and how it works in each represented jurisdiction (with speakers from Europe, USA, Canada, and Japan, and the moderator from Brazil).

This event is part of FICPI’s “Connect, Share & Grow” webinar series focusing on topics from FICPI’s Work and Study Committee and the Professional Excellence Committee. We hope you will join us for some or all of our 16-part free webinar series running into 2021, that will showcase the active role that FICPI takes in promoting the IP profession around the globe.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions throughout this interactive session.
