The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center is pleased to share that effective April 1, 2016, parties to Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) proceedings can benefit from the IP Mediation Promotion Scheme. Introduced by IPOS, the Scheme will fund the parties’ mediation costs up to SGD 5,500, regardless of the outcome.
Under the collaboration with IPOS, the WIPO Center has since 2012 provided mediation services for IP disputes pending before IPOS. Examples of successful WIPO mediation cases for IPOS proceedings can be found here.
We hope that many of the parties to IPOS proceedings can take advantage of the Scheme and achieve win-win solutions by amicably settling their IP disputes with the WIPO Center.
Answers to FAQs about the Scheme are available here.
The WIPO Center remains at your disposal for any inquiry you might have in referring your dispute(s) to WIPO mediation. Please feel free to contact Ms. Jessica Park, WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (Singapore) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
