Parallel Importing

Parallel Importing

The Law Faculty at Tel Aviv University is holding a seminar on parallel Importing in memory of Dr Amnon Goldberg.

The event will be held on 4 May 2017 from 4:oo PM to 7:30 PM (16:00 to 19:30 for those who prefer 24 hour clocks.

Professor Michael Birnhack will give the opening speech, and then there will be a round table chaired by Dr Amir Khoury.

The courts have ruled on parallel importing several times. In 2014 the Supreme Court discussed the issue in-depth in Tommy Hilfiger. More recently, Optika Halperin was sued by Luxvision for importing Zeiss lenses directly from a licensed producer in India.

No doubt this conference will address open issues and discuss the relative merits of licensees and the public good.
