Symposium: "Best practices in the fight against counterfeiting & piracy – NFTs not your cup of tea? Well, they should: NFTs as a new way of fighting counterfeiting and piracy"

04.07.2022 | Event, Piraterie
Date: Thursday, 15 September 2022
Time: 10.00 – 17.00
Location: University of Neuchâtel

More and more companies are jumping on the NFT bandwagon and selling various NFT items. But what actually are non-fungible tokens? Why are Swiss companies using this new technology? And what role can NFTs play in the fight against counterfeiting?
The event will also focus on the following topics relating to combating counterfeiting and piracy: the situation regarding counterfeit medicines in Switzerland and the EU, illegal online streaming services, and experiences with enforcing “Swissness” in Switzerland and abroad.

The STOP PIRACY association and the Intellectual Property and Innovation Research Centre [PI]2 of the University of Neuchâtel will attempt to shed light on these topics at the conference.
