Ira Cohen, Esq., Partner at Henkel & Cohen, P.A., of Miami, Florida, attended INTA's Special Conference October, 2017. The Conference was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in beautiful Bocagrande, Cartagena, Bolivar, Colombia.

The International Trademark Association gathered intellectual property (IP) experts and thought leaders from across the region and around the world in Cartagena, Colombia, for its “Changing Landscape of Latin America Conference.” Conference speakers and participants explored the unique economic, social, and political changes in the region and their impact on IP, and shared advice on business engagement and investment in the region. The educational program included sessions covering Latin America’s legislative and regulatory landscape and touched upon the increasing challenge of balancing IP rights with regulatory restrictions affecting businesses. Panelists also shared ideas for best practices for collaboration between IP counsel and entrepreneurs as they balance the need to protect their IP with growing their businesses. Other key topics of discussion were data protection and IP enforcement, as well as how to combat online counterfeiting; opportunities and challenges presented by social media; and how to protect and enhance their brand conversation on the social media platforms.
