How does investment law affect intellectual property protection?
At the seminar, you will learn what international investment treaties (IIAs) mean for the protection of intellectual property (IP). Modern IIAs cover IP as a protectable investment. New important arbitral awards have been recently issued in investor-to-state dispute settlement concerning trademarks and patents.
