Each Forum is a one-day roundup of the latest key
issues in China, Japan and Korea - presented by specialists
from each country and aimed at European practitioners (both
in-house and in private practice).
Topics on the agenda include: trade mark protection in
China; IP enforcement in China; damages; effective protection
in Japan; understanding Korea's legal framework; dealing with
IP infringement; and IP commercialisation and
The latter is particularly topical in the light of
Microsoft's recent sale of 1,500 patents to Xiaomi.
The Forums will provide an opportunity to find out about,
and discuss, a range of issues from the impact of the TPP in
Japan to the implications of the recent SPC Judicial Interpretation on patent
litigation in China.
Many practitioners in China in particular have commented on
developments in patent litigation, driven by the specialised IP
courts and the increasing engagement of IP owners (both
domestic and foreign) in litigation, so I expect that will also
be a popular topic for discussion.
We will also get an update on court reforms in Korea,
including the new opposition system.
I know last year's IP in Asia Forums were well received and
provided great opportunities for both learning and networking,
so don't miss out!
Registration is free for in-house IP and patent counsel,
academics and R&D professionals.
