Tokyo International Symposium: “Intellectual Property and International Civil Litigation”


The Copyright Group, the Industrial Property Right Group, and International Civil Procedure Group all working within the “Transparency of Japanese Law” Project are jointly organising the international symposium on the ever more challenging issues arising in the field where private international law meets intellectual property law. The sessions are classically divided into three parts: jurisdiction, applicable law, and recognition and enforcement. The presentations will focus on the CLIP proposal and the counterpart Japanese proposal, whereas the ALI Principles will be generally described in the introduction. The symposium will be held on 8 and 9 May 2009 in Tokyo, Japan.
