High quality and luxury brands are under threat as never before. The traditional challenges posed by copying and counterfeiting have grown exponentially as result of the wild west of the digital world. Frederick Mostert will be talking about the dangers that these political, economic, social and technological trends present to established brands and how the risks and damage can be mitigated and countered.
Frederick Mostert is a lawyer, scholar and internationally recognised authority on intellectual property issues as well as a member of the ACID (Anti Copying in Design).
Mostert is a past President of the International Trademark Association and is the former Chief Intellectual Property Counsel and Chief Legal Counsel of Richemont. He has been on the boards of both, as well as those of Net-a-Porter, the Walpole Group and the European Union Intellectual Property Office. He has also provided pro bono legal assistance to President Nelson Mandela.
