Together with foreign counsel Dr. Georgina Busku and panel moderator Francesca La Rocca, Kilian Schärli will be holding a discussion about sponsorship and licensing.

The goal of the event is to convey peculiarities and strategies adopted by outstanding protagonists of the sport field in the protection and exploitation of intellectual property, opening a dialogue on the points of contact and divergences in legislation among the different jurisdictions. The program is divided into three sessions, on topics such as ambush marketing, licensing and sponsorship. The new frontiers of sports in the virtual world and the metaverse will also be a subject.
