Asia-Pacific IP Forum: speakers named

Managing IP’s 8th Annual Asia-Pacific IP Forum takes place on September 29th at the Kowloon Shangri-La in Hong Kong, with more than 200 in-house counsel, officials and advisers expected to attend

Ada Leung, deputy director of intellectual property at the Hong Kong Intellectual Property Department, and Albert Ho, head of the Intellectual Property Investigations Bureau at Hong Kong Customs, will be keynote speakers at the 8th Annual Forum.

The conference will cover IP enforcement strategies across the region, with focus sessions on enforcement in China, India and Southeast Asia.

Speaking on the China enforcement panel will be Oliver Lutze of Bayer alongside Elliot Papageorgiou, He Fang and Fabrice Mattei of Rouse. They will share insights on where and when to litigate as a plaintiff, how to prepare as a defendant in patent litigation, and comparisons between the China and Asean patent litigation scenes.

On the Southeast Asia session, Chew Kherk Ying, Celeste Ang and Adolf Panggabean will discuss the legal landscape in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, focussing on the impact of regional IP agreements on enforceability in the region.

Anuradha Salhotra and Doyel Sengupta of Lall Lahiri & Salhotra will look at enforcement strategies in India, dealing with Customs and local authorities, and the advantages and disadvantage of remedial options in India.

In addition to these topics, Joe Thymian of Melbourne IT will lead a session on new gTLDs. He and Dennis Cai from the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre will explain how to apply for a new gTLD, provide tips for protecting against cybersquatters, and debate how to succeed in a gTLD dispute.

Finally, the last session of the day features an in-house panel discussion on strategies for managing investigations. Managing IP's Peter Ollier will pose questions to the panel, including Mayank Vaid of LVMH, on how best to work with investigators, local authorities and law enforcement.

Managing IP would like to thank the Forum sponsors: Lall Lahiri & Salhotra, Mayer Brown, Melbourne IT, Rouse and Wong & Partners, and supporting associations: APICC, Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association and the Intellectual Property Rights Protection Alliance.
