About the Programme
For practitioners and litigants, disputes surrounding IP are traditionally dealt with by the Courts or before the respective IP Registrars. With the new Intellectual Property (Dispute Resolution) Act coming into force in 2019, IP disputes are now definitively arbitrable.
It is timely to consider mediation’s place in the resolution of IP disputes. Is the mediation of IP disputes any different from the mediation of any other type of disputes?
This webinar aims to:
- Discuss the practical realities and examples of how pure IP disputes can be resolved to the benefit of all parties, through time and cost effective mediation.
- Provide an overview on the mediation process, the advent of online mediation and the commencement of the Singapore Convention on Mediation. Explore how these impact a party’s or counsel’s consideration in selecting a most appropriate dispute resolution mechanism for your IP disputes.
- Provide an overview of WIPO Mediation for IP and technology disputes, including the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center’s recent experience regarding the use of technology for meetings and hearings and the referral to mediation of IP cases pending before national courts and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore.
