  • Recently, as the number of patent infringement actions filed by foreign companies against Korean competitors has increased, Korean companies have responded aggressively with counteractions in multiple countries, frequently including Korea.

    With recent cases such as the Apple v. Samsung disputes, Osram v. LG Innotek & Samsung LED and the “Viagra case” between Pfizer and Hanmi Pharmaceutical, having a clear understanding of the South Korean legal framework and enforcement practice becomes crucial in successfully protecting your patent portfolio and other forms of IP rights.

    Whether you, or your clients, face litigation in Korea, or will potentially be facing it in the future, this webinar will help you understand the essence of Korea’s legal framework, analyse different enforcement options, and give advice on effective counter-measures.

    Recently, there has been a rise in allegations that the high costs of the patent litigation system in the US are being exploited to reach settlements even on low-value patents. This has led to concerns from technology companies as well as end-users that the patent system is impeding business development and innovation.

    Key to this debate is the question of damages in litigation: How are they awarded? What is proportionate? Are any changes in the law needed? In this webinar, our panellists will look at the issues raised by the troll debate, what strategies plaintiffs and defendants can adopt and what changes, if any, are needed.

    Whether you, or your clients, face threats from trolls, or will potentially be affected in the future, this webinar will help you understand the essence of the problem, how existing laws can already face these challenges and the consequences of new legislation on the issue.

    Speakers include:
    • James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    • Eric E. Bensen, intellectual property author and independent consultant
    • Bryan W. Butler, IP Counsel, IBM
    • Charles R. Macedo, Partner, Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP

    The webinar will focus on patent trolls and damages, covering:
    • What is ‘troll-behaviour’, and what is acceptable?
    • How can existing laws be utilized to tackle the problem?
    • What is being done to change the situation, and will these initiatives be effective or harmful?

    With the troll issue being discussed around the world, there is still a lack of definition and clear understanding. This webinar will provide an invaluable guide for patent owners who are affected by this problem, or might be in the future, as well as their advisers. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.

  • Foreign Investigations: A Case Study Recorded: Oct 4 2011 70 mins
    With the widely-reported increase in FCPA enforcement by the US Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the new UK Bribery Act recently taking effect, corporations are increasingly required to conduct anti-bribery due diligence and investigations across the globe. Yet EU data privacy laws often seem to be in direct conflict with US regulator’s expectations for credible investigations. Complying with US and EU requirements can require creative solutions and a strategic legal and technical partnership to gather and review the necessary data and documents.

    Attend this webcast, co-presented by Kelly Garrett Thorman of Fulbright & Jaworksi and Craig Earnshaw of FTI Technology, to learn both the legal and technical perspectives on:

    • Data privacy requirements as they relate to investigations;

    • Practical steps and considerations for large-scale international on-site document collection, processing and review;

    • Best practices from a recently completed European investigation.
  • Impact of New Dodd-Frank Rules - Whistleblowing & Corp Compliance Recorded: Jun 15 2011 64 mins
    The recently released Dodd-Frank rules on whistleblowers will impact how allegations of federal securities law violations are reported, reviewed, and investigated and require corporations to consider compliance program changes to meet the challenges created by the new incentives and protections.
  • Inherent Conflicts - U.S. Investigations & E.U. Data Privacy Laws Recorded: May 5 2011 61 mins
    From whistle blower allegations, government inquiries and subpoenas, to corporate due diligence, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) violations, and financial fraud – corporate counsel must collect and produce greater amounts of data from around the globe. Besides basic logistical issues, various tiers of data privacy restrictions complicate the process, requiring an in-depth knowledge of data storage technology and practices, multinational data transfer regulations, and general e-discovery best practices. For example, if data is required in response to a regulatory request in the United States, yet the custodians are based in France and Germany, how can the data be collected and reviewed in a defensible manner in compliance with EU as well as French and German data privacy laws? This program will outline the key considerations and best practices for collecting and assessing data in a defensible and secure manner.
