greetings / ご挨拶

It has become increasingly clear over the past few years that we live in challenging times full of changes. The WTO rules seemed set in stone and with it basic principles in the IP world. However, today the political climate has become very volatile and many things that for a long time were taken for granted may no longer apply. So far the world of Intellectual Property has not been in the focus of rule changers, but we also see a loss of certainty.

In both Europe and the US, the challenges associated with prosecuting and enforcing IP rights relating to new technologies are still to be dealt with. To prevail over the competition it is necessary to have a clear perspective and develop sophisticated strategies based on thorough knowledge and a deep understanding of present court and patent office practice.

On the first seminar day (November 13) we will update you on the latest political developments in Europe and the US and provide you with useful tips for your strategy in patent prosecution and litigation.

For the first time in the history of the CPPC seminar, the second day (November 14) will be dedicated to aspects of IP in the field of new technologies.

As in the past years, in addition to comparative views of the situation in the US and Europe, expert comments from a Japanese perspective will be provided.

Simultaneous interpretation into Japanese will be provided throughout both days.

On the evening of November 13, all seminar participants are invited to the CPPC Reception at the Roppongi Hills Club (51st floor).

私たちはここ数年、変化に満ちた時代を生きています。今まで確実だったものが不確実になり、基本的な価値観であったはずのものが突然疑問視されるというチャレンジングな時代です。WTO下のルールは、知財の基本原則とリンクする不動のものと考えられていました。しかし、今や政治情勢は激変し、これまで当然であった多くの事が、そうでなくなる可能性があります。 知財の世界も同様で、ここでも不安定な状況が生じつつあります。





両日を通じて講演には日英の同時通訳をご用意しております。 なお、11月13日には、セミナー後にレセプションディナー(会場:51階六本木ヒルズクラブ)をご用意しております。多くの皆さまのご参加をお待ちしております。
