For a seventh year running, the MIP International Patent Forum attracted interest from over 300 patent and IP professionals from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia, making 2017 the Forum's biggest meeting to date. 

A swathe of IP developments, spurred on in no small part by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, saw IP experts faced with numerous challenges and changes for 2017 and beyond. As ever, the Forum addressed these issues and provided practical insights on how they could best manage their patent portfolios. 

Delegates were able to:

  • Join analytical discussion on the implications of Brexit on the Unified Patent Court
  • Examine how the uncertainty of patent eligibility affects filing and enforcement strategies in major markets
  • Understand the practical implications of the Nagoya Protocol
  • Evaluate the merits of trade secret protection versus patent protection
  • Discuss whether China is now a safe environment for IP owners
  • Listen to essential developments in European patent law over the past year
  • Find out how close we are to a unified definition of Frand using practical case studies
  • Learn how to use intangible assets as security


Key takeways from the event will be made available shortly. Event photos can be viewed here.
