In recent years there has been an increased focus on the importance of intellectual property. Technology giants have engaged in global litigations pertaining to their technology, online shopping platforms are facing increased scrutiny with regards to the products they offer, and the Park Administration has adopted the “Creative Economy” paradigm to foster innovation. It is clear that Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) simultaneously create opportunities for some and barriers for others. In order to gain a competitive edge, it is of utmost importance to have IPR duly protected and adequately enforced.
It is with great pleasure that we can hereby inform you that on October 22, 2015 ECCK will host the 2015 Korea-EU IPR Conference at the Conrad Hotel in Seoul.
