Intent to use a trade mark in the United States and Europe and whether it matters – IP Think Tank podcast 27 Apr 2009

Welcome to the IP Think Tank podcast for Monday 27th April 2009.  In this week’s call, regular panellists Jeremy Phillips and Duncan Bucknell are joined by John Welch to discuss:

  • Intent to use in the United States and Europe, by foreign and local trade mark owners;
  • The doctrine of fraud in US trade mark matters;
  • Declarations of use for trade marks in the United States; and
  • Whether lack of use is a major practical problem anywhere.

We hope you enjoy this week’s show, and as always, we look forward to your comments and feedback.
