It may be just another Thursday, but that shouldn't stop you from finding out about interesting IP news, events and opportunities!

Reduced copyright dispute mediation costs in Singapore

IPOS (Intellectual Property Office of Singapore) announced on Wednesday 7th August 2019 that businesses and creators will now have access to reduced mediation rates to resolve copyright disputes in Singapore, at the World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO Center). This collaboration is driven by IPOS with WIPO Center, to strengthen Singapore’s position as the region’s alternative dispute resolution hub.

Currently, parties with an existing dispute before IPOS involving patents, registered designs and trade marks enjoy reduced rates when they choose WIPO Center as their mediation provider. Now, with the reduced rates extended to copyright disputes, stakeholders in the copyright and creative industries stand to gain access to more efficient and cost-effective routes to resolve their copyright disputes, including those relating to collective management and orphan works. More information is available here.


On 25th September 2019, the International Trademark Association (INTA) will be holding a workshop in New Delhi (at The Leela Palace, from 9:30am to 6:30pm), focused on trade mark-related trends and opportunities in India. INTA’s full-day workshop will consist of four educational sessions that will bring attendees up to speed on these robust changes and explore emerging trade mark protection and litigation trends in India, the need for a National IPR Centre, graphical representation in nontraditional marks, and the impact of artificial intelligence and blockchain on the practice of IP law. More information can be found here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
