Don’t forget to register for the ECTA webinar “Slogans..but made for branding. A new threshold for registrability of slogans after Oatly?” - 18 May 2021 (14.00-15.30 Brussels time)
ECTA Second Vice-President Carina Gommers

(Zaborski, Morysiński Law Office, PL), Luc Suykens
(UBA,BE), and Bart ten Doeschate
(Heineken International, NL).
How easy is it to register slogans, should they be registered, and what can be done to ensure their protection? After an overview of relevant EU judgements, including the last ‘milky’ case, our speakers will discuss the degree of distinctiveness required and whether it will be easier to register slogans as trade marks. They will also provide insights from a marketing perspective, such as how a slogan is practically developed as well as address in-house legal challenges around this topic.
The webinar will be held in English
