  • 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. Under this changing environment, the quality and size of the Korean patent portfolio plays a critical role in balancing the overall positions between the disputing parties.

    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.

    Speakers include:
    • James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    • Mr. J. Kenneth Oh, vice president, head of IP division, LG Display Co., Ltd.
    • Mr. Duck Soon Chang, partner, Kim & Chang
    • Mr. Stephen T. Bang, partner, Kim & Chang

    The webinar will focus on South Korea’s legal framework and patent enforcement practice, covering:
    • Enforcement options in South Korea
    • How to utilize the bifurcated court system
    • Effective counter-measures to an invalidity defence
    • Analysis and discussion of South Korea’s most notable patent infringement cases

    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.

    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.

  • Facilitating a Global IP Market: OT’s Newest Transaction Platform Recorded: Nov 6 2008 54 mins
    Currently, there are few viable options for easily transferring IP. The Ocean Tomo Patent/Bid-Ask (P/B-A) platform was created to address this problem. P/B-A is the first web- and voice-enabled marketplace that allows buyers and sellers to submit offers to buy (“Bids”) and sell (“Asks”) any of the 33 million plus patent assets, or any combination thereof, across 81 countries and patent-issuing authorities in a completely transparent fashion.
    This discussion explores how P/B-A:
    -Provides an alternative method for transferring IP assets
    -Increases transparency on a global basis for IP transactions
    -Reduces legal expenses involved with transactions
    -Allows for flexible deal structures
