Visit by JIPII Seminar Participants

On April 4, 2018, ten participants (lawyers and other legal experts specializing in IPR from Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand) in the Japanese Intellectual Property Law Seminar (Patent) held by JIPII (the Japan Institute for Promoting Invention and Innovation) visited the IP High Court.
The party observed proceedings in the courtroom, followed by an explanation from Presiding Judge Makiko Takabe and Judge Masaru Yamakado on the outline of IP-related litigation. The party participated in an active question and answer session on various topics including litigation procedures in a case where a foreign corporation is engaged as a litigant, methods for collecting evidence by parties in infringement litigations, the average time intervals from commencement and disposition of a case, and utilization of settlements in IP-related litigations. At the end of their visit, they toured the facilities of the court building and received an explanation from a judicial research official on the role of judicial research officials in IP-related litigations.
