About Scan the Globe Webinar Series

Scan the Globe is a series of webinars launched as part of the 125th anniversary activities, which began in 2022 and will run through 2023.

The purpose is to give AIPPI members access to information about IP laws and practices around the world, especially regarding lesser-known jurisdictions/regions in terms of developments, and share recent litigation cases to show the implementation of the law and where certain decisions made during IP prosecution can affect later enforcement abilities.

This series will strengthen our internal relationship and engage with national associations within the region.
