About the Programme
This e-Masterclass with Michael Chu – Partner, McDermott Will & Emery, aims to advance on your knowledge towards specialised and integrated understandings about Intellectual Property (IP) practice in ASEAN+6 contexts. It will examine key strategies and good operating practices for protecting and enforcing IP rights in ASEAN+6 contexts.
The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) of the 10 ASEAN countries plus 6 free-trade partners (ASEAN+6) seeks to promote free trade amongst its member countries and a desire to cooperate, including the establishment of regional intellectual property platforms and infrastructure. However, IP is not harmonised, and not all IP rights have the same success levels for protection and enforcement through the region. As more and more global and regional organisations base their operations, or part of their operations, in Asia, the correct domicile, protection and enforcement of important intellectual property rights becomes a key consideration for business.
This e-Masterclass provides an overview of the various IP rights, the relevant protections in ASEAN countries, and then takes a deep dive into a number of key areas of IP and dispute resolution. Throughout, you will be presented with case studies which will be used to prepare advice.
