Technology Transfer Webinar 27: Patent Enforcement in Japan – How to efficiently utilize your patent rights

27-05-19 | 10:00 h - 11:00 h

The number of patent applications from Europe filed at the JPO was over 20,000, which accounts for more than a third of the total number of patent applications filed at the JPO from overseas (2017).  Even if your patent is successfully granted, are you ready to enforce your patent rights in an efficient way?  If your patent is infringed, how should you counter this?  How should you take proper precautions in order to prevent infringement?  We will introduce these measures based on the practice and systems in Japan from the viewpoint of designs and trademarks, in addition to patents.  During this webinar, we will especially focus on preliminary injunctions, which are expected to be efficient for enforcement in Japan. We believe this will be helpful and easily comprehensible not only for patent holders who already have patent rights in Japan, but also for people who are considering filing a patent application at the JPO.
