In the past twelve months, South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal has handed down four judgments concerning trade marks. Adams & Adams Partner and Chairman, Gérard du Plessis, provided insight into the repercussions of those outcomes for trade mark owners at this year’s Crammer™ event. Watch the video presentation, along with other interesting discussions below.
Crammer is an annual Adams & Adams event that has been running for a decade. Its aim is to digest legal developments and issues of the year into a morning’s session by providing short, sharp insights with practical tips, and is designed for busy inhouse legal practitioners, executives, C-suites, and managers.
This year the general theme is based around the concept of RE.VISION – a review and future looking event analysing trends such as blockchain, AI, disruption and the law. Tech guru, author and broadcaster, Simon Dingle, opened this year’s event with an enthralling look at the origins and dynamics of cryptocurrency, debunking myths surrounding Bitcoin and blockchains, and an outline of what the new era of money means for individuals and for business.
This was followed by an compelling panel discussion exploring current insights on the effect of technology and changing consumer dynamics in the provision of legal services – with interesting perspectives from industry, technology experts, and legal service providers.
