Wine and Health Law Prognosis
“Plain packaging, mandatory health warnings, prohibitions against health claims, pregnancy warnings, wine in moderation statements, nutrition statements”
Are WTO/FTA Panels Useful?
“How to advise your client: are WTO and FTA panels useful and /or enforceable?” Can companies “use” countries to promote their interests? Nomination of panelists and appellate body members”
Remedies: flexibility for a modern era? How far can Judges go?
Interprofessional organisations and their Benefits
“Have Interprofessions outlived their usefulness or are they excellent role models for the New World?”
A very brief history of interprofessions, including their legislative base, how they operate, where their funding comes from, what they can achieve that private associations joined voluntarily can’t achieve and whether they are relevant today and why? This position will be contrasted with the new world model and their local “equivalents”, such as voluntary winemakers’ associations, and what their limitations are and whether they could gain by becoming more like an interprofession.

IP panel – Non-Traditional IP and Fame
(1) non-traditional and unusual wine-trademarks and other IP; (2) protection of fame and famous wine marks; (3) “relatedness” of goods
Such non-traditional trademarks would include Veuve Clicquot’s yellow
Shapes – the registration of various bottle shapes , bottle embossing - like the Chateauneuf-du-Pape embossed Papal keys on bottles, label shapes, attempts to protect general get-up, closures – (such as Supreme Corq’s synthetic corks) and the patent for wine in a can
Famous marks in the wine sector and their enforcement – What constitutes “fame” and how to prove it in, say, half a dozen lead markets - EU, USA, etc. How long does such a finding of fame “last” or remain in force?
The interesting question when registering wine trademarks of the “relatedness” of goods
Wine in E-Commerce
“The many aspects of alcohol-related e-commerce”
“Cross border investments in viticultural land and wineries”
Brexit, the Geneva Act and other international topics
