IFIA And WIPO Held Their Joint Webinar About IP Disputes on November 30th
Both in developed and developing countries, disputes over intellectual property are unavoidable. Accordingly, in consequence of the cooperation between IFIA and WIPO, it was time to familiarize the inventors of IFIA member countries with the valuable services of WIPO Alternative Dispute Resolution.
For this purpose, Mr. Bijan Nasiri Azam, IP Office Manager of IFIA, executed “IFIA-WIPO Webinar: How to Resolve IP and Innovation Disputes Using WIPO Mediation and Arbitration” on November 30th, where the officials of WIPO ADR Center described the relevant services to all IFIA INV members, and the audience asked their questions and obviated their ambiguities in this event.
Intending to support independent inventors in international intellectual property disputes, IFIA has partnered with WIPO’s ADR section to help the invention and innovation society benefit from WIPO facilities in this matter.
As we know, filing international claims and lawsuits in all areas, especially intellectual property, can be extremely expensive and time-consuming. But different options can be used by the parties to help resolve conflicts quicker and less costly, such as arbitration.
So, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center offers time- and cost-efficient alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options, such as mediation, arbitration, expedited arbitration, and expert determination to enable private parties to settle their domestic or cross-border commercial disputes. So, the WIPO Center specializes in IP and technology disputes. In this case, IFIA wanted to introduce WIPO’s potential to you inventors, and we hope that you can use the solutions when needed.
Moreover, IFIA plans to hold “IFIA-WIPO Webinar: How to Resolve IP and Innovation Disputes Using WIPO Mediation and Arbitration” in a more specialized way in some countries, in other languages. So, if you want IFIA to hold this event in your country, contact the IFIA offices in your region.
Lastly, IFIA thanks Mr. Marco Matias Aleman, Assistant General Director of WIPO, and Mr. Bijan Nasiri Azam, The IP Office Manager of the International Federation of Inventors Associations, for holding this webinar and helping IFIA expand and develop the invention and innovation ecosystem.
