Professor of Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law
University of Oxford
Graeme Dinwoodie, Professor of Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law at the University of Oxford, will speak at noon in the Law School's Moot Court Room. The title of his lecture is "Global Marks in Local Markets: Territoriality in EU and US Trademark Law." Professor Dinwoodie’s visit is part of a new initiative of the Center for Intellectual Property Research to bring distinguished international IP scholars to campus on a regular basis.
The Smith Lecture draws on a distinction I have previously made between trademark law's intrinsic territoriality, and its political territoriality... Markets are expanding beyond political boundaries, placing pressure on traditional territorial limitations on trademark rights. Yet local cultures and institutions persist, suggesting that those traditional limitations will remain important. The Lecture asks how these conflicting pressures may be reconciled, and looks to current EU and US trademark law for some potential, alternative, answers.
