Counterfeit medicines cause an estimated 170,000 deaths a year, with the WHO estimating more than 120,000 people a year die in Africa as a result of fake anti-malarial drugs. This is also having an incredibly harmful impact on the brands and companies who are being imitated.
Emerging economies, particularly in South East Asia, present a real challenge for companies who are keen to expand internationally while defending their brand and products against counterfeiters. A robust brand protection strategy is required, but distance, culture, technology, and different levels of intellectual property protection can create an extremely difficult environment in which to operate.
Brand protection is still a niche activity, but companies are starting to realise that brand protection offers a real chance to materially affect the bottom line of their business, show their respect for consumers and deliver the consumers’ expectation of products.
Joel Stobart is Chief Technology Officer at Custodian Solutions; a novel brand protection company that uses cloud-based software to re-think and re-design the way brand protection is carried out, joins us alongside Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL; a Global Intelligence consultancy who manage investigations and provide solutions to clients brand protection issues worldwide – for this webinar on brand protection strategies for intellectual property owners operating in South East Asia.
Contracts are the backbone of an enterprise. Blockchain technology will have important implications when it comes to contract management. Blockchain is becoming a new area of interest, from governments creating secure databases of land titles to consortiums of leading financial institutions working together to design new distributed ledger technologies.
It is a brave new world and a lot of conversations are going on. Where will it go? What will the impact be? What will blockchain bring to contract management?
In this webcast, we’ll answer these questions and more with two of the industry’s leading experts: Gartner Research Director, Nigel Montgomery, and Monish Darda, CTO and co-founder of Icertis.
In the webcast, Nigel and Monish discuss:
- The opportunity seen by enterprises, working together, to design new distributed ledger technologies
- What will be the impact of blockhain related technologies?
- What will blockchain bring to contract management?
A well-managed patent portfolio can generate significant revenue for patent owners. But as a portfolio grows, so too does the annuity bill.

China is becoming one of the major technology and patent generators and are already filing more patents than the US and Europe. It is essential for intellectual property owners to understand the truth and the myths surrounding IP in China, and this webinar is essential listening for any individual or company looking to better understand intellectual property rights in China.
In this webinar, you will learn that IP and its enforcement in China is much more advanced than most people realise:

2. The quality, cost and timeliness of the “rights” (patents and trademarks) granted to foreign firms under Chinese law compare well with the rest of the world.
3. Enforcement of patent rights is much cheaper and faster than in most developed countries. The courts, including the IP Tribunal of the Supreme Court, are handing down some very sophisticated judgement.
4. About 95% of the foreign companies litigating their patents in China win their cases
To dive deeper into this topic, we will be joined by our guest speaker, Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing.

With cross-border enforcement on the rise, companies must consider what information, if any, to provide to various regulators. But that’s only the start of the challenge. Having decided to provide information, companies must carefully consider how to protect their privileged and otherwise protected information, including information subject to data protection law.
This GIR Live webinar will break down these challenges as well as looking at various strategies that companies can take to protect that which is privileged or protected when interacting with regulators around the world.
In the GIR Live style, the webinar will aim to be highly conversational and will include time for a question and answer session with the presenters.
Issues to be addressed include:
•How to protect privilege and data privacy during an internal investigation in response to a regulator.
•How to interact with regulators while preserving privilege and data protection rules.
• How do legal privileges and data privacy protections vary between key jurisdictions?
•How does increasing cross-jurisdictional cooperation between regulators impact these considerations?
•What recent developments should practitioners should be aware of?
