The Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre is working with several partners to support scholarship using the empirical study of trade mark data. The first event, a workshop co-sponsored with ETH Zurich, INNOTEC, the Engelberg Center for Innovation Law and Policy, New York University School of Law, The Office of Harmonisation for the Internal Market, the US Patent & Trademark Office, and the University of East Anglia, took place at the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford in December. The workshop brought together scholars from law, economics and management to discuss this growing area of research. Participants included scholars from a number of countries, as well as the Chief Economists of each of the Office of Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM), the World Intellectual Property Organisation, the United States Patent & Trademark Office and the UK Intellectual Property Office. A follow-up conference hosted by the United States Patent & Trademark Office and New York University School of Law is being planned for September 2013.
