Japan-Korea-China IP Symposium Held

December 13, 2016

On December 9, the Japan-Korea-China IP Symposium was held in Odawara, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, co-hosted by the Japan Patent Office (JPO), the State Intellectual Property Office of the People's Republic of China (SIPO), and the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO).

The Symposium was attended by judges, scholars or experts in the field, and government officials from Japan, P. R. China, and South Korea. At the Symposium, speakers gave lectures on the latest trend of intellectual property litigation, and a panel discussion was conducted under the theme of how to interpret “product-by-process claims.”

It is highly expected that the Symposium would facilitate mutual understanding of the protection of intellectual property through administration and judicature in Japan, P. R. China and South Korea.
