The 15th Global Digital Encounter organized by Fide Foundation and TIPSA (Transatlantic Intellectual Property Academy) will take place on 8 September 2021, under the title Towards A More Predictable Legal Framework for Cross-Border Intellectual Property Disputes.
It will discuss the main lines of the Kyoto Guidelines on Intellectual Property and Private International Law drafted by a group of 36 renowned scholars from 19 jurisdictions under the auspices of the International Law Association.
Intellectual Property controversies and disputes become more and more cross border in the context of the IV Industrial Revolution and the enforcement of IP rights in this global environment raises new and complex challenges to the traditional models of solving conflicts through national courts. Issues like the rules for adjudication of international disputes (jurisdiction), the applicable law and the cross-border recognition and enforcement of judgments involving IP claims still differ widely from country to country, fostering therefore the development of an environment deprived of legal certainty which severely affects the enforcement of IP rights all over the world. Consequently, the adoption of model provisions on the private international law aspects of IP which could be used as guiding for national and international legislation has become an urgent matter.
The panel, composed by Marketa Trimble (University of Nevada), Toshiyuki Kono (Kyushu University) and Axel Metzger (Humboldt University of Berlin), will be moderated by Pedro de Miguel Asensio (Complutense University of Madrid).
