Protecting Japanese IP across Asia – MIP's Japanese Buyers' Guide 2022 launched

Editorial cover image.jpg

Managing IP has partnered with leading IP experts to share analysis of the IP landscape in the Asian markets that are significant for many Japanese companies

Managing IP’s Japanese Buyers’ Guide provides insights for Japanese businesses seeking to learn more about the legal terrain of other Asian markets. Together with firm profiles from across the continent, the guide includes thought leadership articles relating to India, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand, written by expert practitioners. 

With India’s penchant for creativity and entrepreneurship, the demand for IP advice remains high, and three chapters in the guide relate to developments in the country. Anand and Anand’s article explores whether there is a need to quantitively measure whether a trademark is ‘well-known’ and looks at how measurements may be possible.

Patent application filing and processing in India has showed good buoyancy even amid the ongoing pandemic. The article from Remfry & Sagar looks at the government’s commitment to steadily improving the standards of patent governance, and analyses the impact of changes in practice and policy. In addition, the authors from Obhan & Associates examine the purpose of experimental data in Indian patent applications, while considering the relevant provisions of the law and the nature of the process.

The team at Hechanova & Co reveal answers to frequently asked questions on protecting industrial designs in the Philippines. The authors consider the procedures for acquisitions, compliance against design infringement, and recent court decisions on the area.

The significant increase in patent applications across the fields of digital healthcare and biomarkers in South Korea forms the crux of FirstLaw PC’s article. In response to the convergence of cutting-edge technologies and the surge of 4IR technology applications, using case studies, the author discusses how the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) has acted to support and facilitate the examination of digital healthcare applications.

The article by Satyapon & Partners evaluates the pros and cons of filing new trademark applications in Thailand using the Madrid Protocol, when compared to direct filings. As both options offer their own distinct advantages, it is imperative that applicants plan their brand protection strategy accordingly.

Also included in this supplement are IP Stars’ patent rankings for a number of jurisdictions, including China, France, India, Mexico and the US. The rankings are based on thorough and detailed research. These tables will be very helpful for Japanese practitioners seeking assistance from firms in countries with which they are not familiar.

As business bounces back across Asia, opportunities for Japanese investors will grow considerably in the coming year. We hope that you enjoy hearing from the IP experts leading the evolution in our guide.
