Successful 4th edition of the International IP Enforcement Summit

On 22 and 23 June 2021, the digital 4th International IP Enforcement Summit gathered key actors to discuss ways to improve the protection and enforcement of IP rights globally in both the online and offline environments. Hosted by the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) the summit highlighted strategic and practical guidance and shared good practices. It was also an opportunity for participants to learn more about how the fight against counterfeiting and piracy could contribute to a healthier society, a more sustainable environment and a stronger economy.

The two-day online event boasted a fully packed agenda of high-level talks spanning topics such as IP enforcement as a tool to protect sustainability investments, new tools to trace IP infringements online, or the potential use of blockchain technology to combat counterfeits.
