The CTM Advisory Initiative e.V. (CTM AI) is an initiative of Munich Attorneys for promoting the knowledge of the Community trademark. The CTM Advisory Initiative consists of experienced Attorneys from Munich who have decided to promote and proliferate the knowledge of the Community trademark based upon their practical experience gained since the CTM Office opened in 1996.

The International Trademark Association (INTA) together with united domains (Germany) will host a Roundtable on the new gTLDs:

Date / Time: Thursday, 21 June 2012 - 2.00 - 4.00 pm

Place: Hotel Sofitel, Munich (Germany)

It is an astonishing figure - and not many people realize this: But, on average, approx. 46% of a company's value is made up and derived from trademarks - and that is one of the major reasons why companies should protect their brands - and register them.

As a brand owner, it is extremely important to understand the value of a trademark - and that and why it needs to be protected - it is one of your company's most valuable assets!

National patent case law remains important: As of May 2012 it is still not known when the EU Patent will actually come into force and when and where the EU Unified Patent Court (note: London, Paris and Munich are the "hot" candidates) will be established.

We thought we should share this great video on BRANDING with you. It was produced in 2011 by MSc Brand Leadership team at Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia.

In essence, a BRAND is a "stamp of ownership" - making people aware that it is "YOURS".

Visionary inventors have and will continue to revolutionize our world with their outstanding ideas. Curiosity, knowledge and determination of individuals are the basis for every great innovation.

As an IP boutique firm headquartered in Munich, Germany - home of the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO) and the European Patent Office (EPO) - we take the opportunity to help support and promote this year's IP Day.

Copyright laws - among others in Germany - and the great difficulties to know and assess what is allowed - and what is not.

Stars like Elvis, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Lady Gaga are musical icons and partly already legends of music history.  They are everywhere in our daily lives – on the radio, in commercials and we find their fashion in lifestyle and VIP magazines.

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) together with its intitiative "Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy" (BASCAP) has launched a unified consumer awareness campaign against counterfeiting.

The campaign was officially launched by BASCAP and its global partners from around the world - incl. Germany's Anti-Counterfeiting Organization APM  who want to improve consumer awareness regarding the harms of counterfeiting and piracy. The aim and objective is to help consumers understand that counterfeit products are a real threat to health and safety, jobs and the economy.

ANSWER: Intellectual Property (IP) Rights - including trademarks, designs, utility models & patents.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) just recently published its World IP Indicator 2011 Report.
