Thought leaders share IP insights with PitchMark at AIPPI World Congress

The International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, known as AIPPI (Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle), is the world’s leading non-profit association dedicated to the development and improvement of laws for IP protection.

Based in Switzerland, it has over 8,000 members from 131 countries, and works to promote the protection of IP both internationally and nationally. This year, PitchMark is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of the AIPPI World Congress, the organisation’s annual event for its members to discuss issues related to IP law.

On October 13, we will be sharing an exciting line-up of online video content with AIPPI World Congress attendees, featuring insights from thought leaders in the legal world.

Deep dives on developments in different regions

How is recent guidance from the European Commission, as well as recent and pending judicial decisions, impacting the implementation of the European Union’s 2019 Digital Single Market (DSM) Directive? Ted Shapiro will share his thoughts on this topic.

For those interested in Asia, John Eastwood elaborates on how the jurisdictions of Taiwan and the People's Republic of China align (or don’t) in cases of cross-border IP infringement.

Lam Chung Nian discusses the driving forces behind Singapore’s Copyright Bill, the most sweeping amendments to Singapore’s Copyright Act since its enactment in 1987; while Singapore's Adrian Tan sheds more light on how IP lawyers can better understand the creative mindset as they help innovators to protect their ideas.

How the digital landscape is shaping IP protection

Michael Williams will speak about the present state of online enforcement in Australia when it comes to internet service providers whose networks are used for infringing copyright.

Jay Jhaveri also explores the growing prevalence of artificial intelligence in law enforcement, and other pertinent AI applications.

With e-commerce enabling a new era of IP piracy and counterfeiting, what can rights-owners do to protect their IP? Bharat Kapoor has some answers, as does Andrew Bradshaw, who speaks on the subject of fighting counterfeiting from an Asian perspective.
