This on-demand webinar shines a light on global trademark cancellation strategies. Specifically, panelists explore how to defend against / avoid cancellation brought against your marks, as well as how to use cancellation proceedings offensively to remove potential problematic marks. The panel also discussed what evidence needs to be gathered, the limits of differentiating marks, and circumstances that may excuse non-use.
