(M)ad Men – the legal do’s and don’ts of comparative brand advertising

Is comparative brand advertising a legal no-no, a perfectly legitimate tactic – or something to be approached with care? Spoor & Fisher partner and highly respected IP litigator Charles Webster will provide answers to this question in a public lecture on “Comparative Brand Advertising: the legal do’s and don’ts” to be presented by the Chair of Intellectual Property Law at Stellenbosch University.

Listed among the world’s leading IP practitioners and co-author of the authoritative standard reference work on the South African Law of Trade Marks, Charles is superbly qualified to offer an informative, up-to-date and engrossing overview of the topic. This lecture will be of interest to anyone involved in the advertising and marketing fields, irrespective of whether or not they have any knowledge of IP law.

Spoor & Fisher is pleased to be associated with this event, which will take place on Thursday the 25th of August 2016 at the JC de Wet Hall of Stellenbosch University. If you would like to attend, kindly follow this link for further details.
