Global Digital Encounters: The role of IP in a new post-crisis world


The COVID-19 pandemic has raised many questions: Join us in our quest to discover and establish The role of IP in a new post-crisis world.




Global Digital Encounters: The Growing Role of Intellectual Property in the Post-Crisis Landscape

THE ROLE OF IP IN A NEW POST-CRISIS WORLD

Global Digital Encounters

Introduction


FIDE (Legal and Business Research Foundation) and TIPSA (Transatlantic Intellectual Property Academy) join forces to organize a serial of digital encounters to be scheduled along the year 2020 around the topic “The role of IP in a new post-crisis world”. All online encounters are opened to any interested person and speakers have been selected among the most relevant IP scholars and professionals all over the world.
 

The situation we live in has highlighted and made unstoppable something that we already knew: we are heading towards a world in which intangible assets are going to be key in a society oriented towards artificial intelligence and the data economy, where Industry 4.0, Biotechnology and Biocomputing will be the keywords for the future.
 

So, the question is served:  if intangible assets are increasingly important, how is the Intellectual Property system duly equipped to respond to the needs of this new world?
 

Let us address this fundamental issue with courage !!!
 

Participation is free but places are limited, therefore early registration is encouraged.
 

The Global Digital Encounters form integral part of the solidarity projects run by both organizations to support the international, European and national plans to overcome the sanitary and financial consequences of the COVID-19

Towards a Post-COVID Changing Game

September 25th, 2020
4:30pm-5:30pm CEST

Objectives:

The post-COVID Crisis environment is marked by an exponential use of Artificial Intelligence and a further digitalization of society, permitting mankind to overcome major limitations linked to the pandemic, and proposing new options for many activities necessary to the business, consumers, and the entire society. As a consequence, the relation between patents and software protection gets further re-visited choice. Speakers from three continents will provide a broad picture of the increased, but also, changing the role of patents in software and AI in a profoundly transformed post-crisis environment.

Encounter 4: IP Arbitration In A Digitally Enhanced World
July 22nd, 2020
*|END:WEB_VIDEO|*

Objectives:

 

The post-COVID Crisis environment is marked by a major breakout of IP legal disputes on contracts that were / are deeply affected in all parts of the world, with a considerable amount of contract breeches. This means a rapid surge in litigation, and fast-increasing interest for Advance Disputes Resolution, both arbitration and mediation. At the same time, this complex new environment brings new challenges and opportunities to arbitration and mediation, in particular on online operations, distance-based operations, small business access to arbitration and mediation, enforceability of arbitration, information and transparency on arbitrators' choice. Speakers will provide a broad picture of the increased, but also, changing role of IP Arbitration and Mediation in a profoundly transformed post-crisis business environment.
