Join the Webinar: WIPO ADR Options for Inventors
IFIA and the WIPO Center actively collaborate to raise awareness and promote the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution for IP disputes. As such, a webinar is planned to be specifically held for IFIA members on 13 July 2017.
In today’s economy, intellectual property (IP) rights represent valuable business assets. The commercial exploitation of IP rights through licensing, patent pooling, technology transfer and R&D agreements can trigger substantial benefits. However, IP rights are only valuable as long as they can be efficiently enforced.
With the multiplication of international IP transactions, the number of IP-related disputes has also grown. IP disputes can have a strong impact on innovation processes and business transactions. Although such disputes can be brought before national courts, litigation is not always well equipped to deal with the particularities of this type of disputes because the conflicts are often complex and require specialized expertise. Litigation may also be time consuming and costly, especially for SMEs, startups and inventors.
To address these issues, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center offers time and cost-efficient procedures, such as mediation and arbitration, specifically tailored to resolve IP disputes, without the need for court litigation.
IFIA encourages all the members to join the webinar and learn about:
- How to benefit from WIPO’s time- and cost-efficient alternative dispute resolution
- procedures for IP and technology disputes – Global trends in IP and technology dispute resolution and case studies
- Special fees for PCT users
