Successfully protecting FIFA’s intellectual property assets during 2018 Football World Cup

As Panama celebrated its first time ever at the 2018 Football World Cup, Arias, Fábrega & Fábrega advised its client Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in multiple brand protection and ticketing enforcement cases against unauthorised reproduction of its trademarks.

In a very busy year, the firm worked with FIFA and with FIFA’s law firm in Germany regarding anti-counterfeiting or lawful use of their trademarks such as FIFA, WORLD CUP 2018, RUSSIA 2018; designs (both registered and unregistered) and copyright as subsisting in works such as the Official Poster, Emblem, Mascot and Look artworks.
