The 4th IPR Seminar Comparison & Analysis of IPR Licensing Guidelines of Several Competition Authorities, in an International Context, Friday, June 10th, 2011

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol


2011 ICR Law Center Special Seminar Series

Regulations over Intellectual Property Rights Licensing

 

The 4th IPR Seminar

Comparison & Analysis of IPR Licensing Guidelines of

Several Competition Authorities, in an International Context

 

Date:  Friday, June 10th, 2011 1:30 pm ~ 6 pm

Venue : Kangnam-Gu Yeoksam-Dong KIPS Center Intl Conference Room (19th Fl)

 

The Innovation, Competition & Regulation Center (the “ICR Law Center”) specializes in expert research on theoretical and practical issues that arise in the context of Competition, Regulatory, Communications and Intellectual Property Law. We began our work in September 2010. Since then, we have launched a successful line of seminars, conferences and lectures that has inspired comprehensive discussion on the most current issues.

On this note, the ICR Law Center has kicked off a new series of seminars on “Regulations over Intellectual Property Rights Licensing”. This seminar series comes into place as concerns over abuse of Intellectual Property rights have grown lately. The ICR Law Center realized that while the need for a more coherent legal scheme is urgent, there is a dearth of reliable research on the subject in Korea. In particular, there is a pressing demand for interdisciplinary studies on the theoretical and practical issues that lie in the junction between Intellectual Property Law and Competition Law.

The June seminar shall conduct a comprehensive comparison and analysis of IPR Guidelines in an international context. Previously, the March seminar touched on IPR issues in the Software industry, the April seminar on IPR issues in the IT industry and the May seminar on IPR issues in the Pharmaceutical industry.

As we wrap up the IPR seminar series with this June seminar, we hope our efforts to gather premier experts in the field of Intellectual Property and Competition laws to discuss the legal issues as well as economic perspectives have provided a balanced base for policy-making appropriate in a Korean context. We also appreciate the great amount of positive feedback that has valued our interdisciplinary approach on both theoretical and practical issues.

            We plan to invite the best international experts from academia, regulatory institutions, international organizations, business and law firms. We welcome all within the professional community to join our efforts to foster international exchange and elevate the integrity of our legal systems. Finally, we thank our sponsors at the law firms of Kim & Chang, Lee & Ko, Shin & Kim and Yulchon for making this event possible.

Comments

If you own a patent, but you do not use the patented invention in a product or service, you are still entitled to enforce your patent. You are known in the world of patents and patent enforcement as a "non-practicing entity" or "NPE" -- or more rudely put, a "patent troll."
