Cayman promotes its new intellectual rights regime in US

(CNS): Officials from the Cayman Islands Intellectual Property Office (CIIPO) are heading to Florida this week to promote the country’s new regime. Deputy Registrar General Donnell Dixon said the invitation to the International Trade mark Association (INTA) Leadership Meeting was recognition of how important Cayman is in this market, despite only just having passed a slate of new laws.  The meeting will feature more than 1,200 intellectual property (IP) experts. “This is an opportunity for us to promote Cayman’s IP framework to some of the leading minds in the industry,” he said.

“The timing of this gathering is phenomenal as the Legislative Assembly just passed a new trade marks law, revised patents law, and new design rights legislation in October that will encourage more international companies to do business in Cayman,” he added.

CIIPO only publicised Cayman’s IP protections at INTA’s Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, in May so receiving the invitation less than six months later “speaks volumes to CIIPO’s significance in the minds of brand owners from major corporations”, he added.
