Mock International Arbitration - Toward Early Dispute Resolution of Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) in the 5G Era

Announcement

Disputes simultaneously arise over Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) that are required for implementing international standards in multiple countries where such international standards are implemented. Whenever parties concerned are involved in international disputes at the court in each country in order to solve such disputes, it takes a long time to settle the disputes and requires large sums of money.

On the other hand, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes including mediation and arbitration are designed to settle disputes involving many patent rights in multiple countries in an integrated manner. Especially in arbitration, compulsory execution may be enforced internationally under the New York Convention. Thus, international disputes are expected to be resolved expeditiously and effectively.
 

Under these circumstances, the Japan Patent Office will hold mock international arbitration in Tokyo aiming to show a potential for settling disputes over SEPs through international arbitration. The JPO also aims to introduce arbitration options available in Tokyo where prominent arbitrators may carry out arbitration processes.

Former Chief Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Randall R. Rader, as well as other leading experts in intellectual property dispute resolution from around the world, will be invited as arbitrators to this mock international arbitration to demonstrate international arbitrations under the assumption that we have entered the Fifth-Generation Mobile Communications System (5G) era. We intend to show in detail how disputes over SEPs can be resolved through international arbitration.
 

We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to learn about international arbitration.
