Intellectual Property Mediation Conference

Wednesday, 29th May 2014

The conference will take place in OHIM&acute;s home city of Alicante, Spain, and will bring together a wide spectrum of stakeholders and will be led by top names in the mediation world.&nbsp;A full conference programme is available&nbsp;<a id="aui_3_2_0_1131" style="color: #0077ac; text-decoration: none; cursor: pointer" href="" target="_blank">here&nbsp;</a>.<br /><br />The conference brings together world-class mediators, practitioners and experts in the mediation field in what promises to be one of the most dynamic and interesting events of its kind.<br /><br />Mediation is a fast-growing discipline within IP, and for some years now, has been developing into a significant instrument of dispute settlement. The EU Mediation Directive (2008/52/EC), which aims to promote mediation, especially in the context of civil and commercial disputes, has already been transposed into national law in many member states.<br /><br />This conference focuses on mediation as a practical tool in day to day IP work. We look at how mediation is practiced at international, EU and at national level, with experts from WIPO, the EPO, OHIM, the UK IP Office and the Portuguese IP office, amongst others. We bring in input from key user associations such as ECTA and INTA, as well as experts from private practice, and offer real-world examples of mediation in action.<br /><br />We also look at issues like the comparisons and synergies between mediation, negotiation and arbitration; how to maximise the mediation experience; psychology and mediation techniques and how to create value through mediation.<br /><br />The conference features breakout sessions, which concentrate on issues ranging from mediation and new technology and role playing techniques, allowing participants to fully engage with hands on mediation practices, and to learn about new ways of working.<br /><br /><p>Registration will open here soon.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Programme link: </p><p></p>
