What restraints can firms place on the reimportation of products?
Tuesday, November 16, 2004
12:00-1:45 p.m. EST
Washington DC and satellite sites
A panel of experts will discuss the rationale for and legality of import restraints that are imposed by US manufacturers on their foreign customers that prevent these customers from reselling product that they purchased in foreign countries in the US. Restraints involving products that contain substantial intellectual property rights, such as pharmaceuticals, will receive particular attention, as well as ongoing cases. The discussion will cover both US and EU law.
