WIPO & IPOS Bring Easier Patent Disputes

HAPPY WORLD IP DAY!

From the Straits Times;

Companies and entrepreneurs will have a new option for settling patent disputes from April 1 onwards.

The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (Ipos) is teaming up with the World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Centre (Wipo AMC) to offer a new option for patent disputes filed at a national IP office.

Under the new option, parties in a patent dispute will be able to submit the matter to an expert of their choice for an assessment, IPOS said in a March 31 statement.

"Patent disputes such as inventorship or entitlement disputes, or patent revocations, often involve complex technical or scientific issues."
