Merpel impersonates a defendant's
voluntary infringement evidence....
The announcement states that:
"Proving infringement of patents in complex technologies is increasingly challenging. Often the key evidence is in hands of another party and may be highly confidential. The court procedures of the key jurisdictions of Japan, France, Germany and the UK have developed a variety of approaches to deal with these challenges, and continue to evolve. The UPC rules of procedure have adapted a number of these approaches.
The Japanese court and legislature are also reforming evidence gathering. This event provides an insight from judges and patent litigation lawyers from these key jurisdictions involved at the forefront of the development of the law. The evidence gathering challenges which patentees and defendants face in the current systems and in the future will be brought to life by a mock trial format
The event is supported by the European Patent Lawyers’ Association (EPLAW) which represents patent litigators across Europe. Leading Japanese IP associations are co-sponsoring the event and have been involved in the reform of Japanese evidence gathering reform."The event, which is also promoted by JETRO, Japan Intellectual Property Association, Japan Patent Attorneys Association, the Japan Federation of Bar Associations and the IP Lawyers Network Japan, kicks off at 9:30AM with Kat friend Penny Gilbert (President of EPLAW) introducing the day. The evening ends with drinks at 6PM. Tickets are €150, but includes lunch and evening drinks reception.
