Managing IP’s Japanese Buyers’ Guide provides insights into the recent developments and legal framework shaping intellectual property (IP) in significant Asian markets that Japanese businesses interact with. Expert practitioners from India, China, South Korea, and the Philippines draw on their experience to enhance Japanese companies’ knowledge, complemented by firm profiles from across the continent and IP Stars patent rankings for several jurisdictions.

The protection and monetisation of IP is gaining prominence in India, and three of the articles focus on this increasingly important jurisdiction. The authors provide answers to the following questions:

  • Which institution could be a game-changer in Indian IP resolution?

  • What is the missing link in Indian patent procedure?

  • How can patent applications be amended in India?

Remfry & Sagar presents the High Court of Delhi as an example to follow across India because of its moves towards efficiency and streamlined IP jurisprudence. The firm notes that any delay in the protection of rights or the settlement of disputes can threaten the economic value of an intellectual asset.

Anand and Anand argues that the lack of a notice of allowance provision in the Indian patent system is leading to uncertainty for patent applicants, particularly regarding the timing of decisions. The article compares the Indian system with that used in the US, European Patent Office (EPO) jurisdictions, and Australia.

Keeping the focus on Indian patent procedure, Obhan & Associates details the limited conditions under which a patent application can be amended. The contributors explain what applicants should look out for when making changes.

Liu Shen & Associates reports on China’s initiatives to incentivise foreign companies’ research and development. Foreign companies with Chinese subsidiaries, or those establishing a base in the country, need a sound understanding of the employee invention system.

FirstLaw PC analyses the statistical trends since the introduction of the ex parte patent revocation procedure in South Korea in 2017. Japanese patentees comprised the majority of the foreign entities that instigated patent revocation cases, while the procedure has been most commonly used in the chemistry/metallurgy field. Electronics is the next most active sector, which indicates Japanese companies’ influence in this area.

Hechanova Group presents the main questions regarding the registration of trademarks in the Philippines and answers them in a systematic manner. The registration procedure is conducted either through a direct filing with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines or via the Madrid System, and the article helps applicants to navigate either route.

The Japanese Buyers’ Guide answers many other IP-related questions and is a valuable resource for Japanese businesses with IP considerations involving other Asian jurisdictions.
