The Global Series - In General

Global Series sessions, part of an on-going dialogue, address topics of global significance at a senior level of discussion. Working closely with government representatives, adjudicators, corporate leaders, litigation leaders, academics, and others in the global community, the Series responds, in real time, to emerging challenges. The on-going Series includes participants from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States, the People’s Republic of China, Canada, Brazil, and other countries.

Although global systems share many common challenges, 2018 trade and intellectual property communities confront fast-paced and extraordinary global policy developments. These affect not only systems but also societal betterment. Among these are trade and trade agreements and their legislative implications. In the midst of these challenges, the 2018 Session will weigh: corporate perspectives on innovation, quality, and enforceability; on trade, barriers, economics, and intellectual property; trade agreements; and commercial predictability. The Series builds upon accomplishments of Global Series Special Session London (2017), Global Series Europe Paris, October, 2016, addressing challenges in intellectual property adjudication (the global judges’ views); adjudicatory change; patent litigation challenges in various countries; patenting strategies; licensing considerations (including antitrust, standards essential patents, and international exhaustion); and, the globally most challenging issues (e.g., injunctions, damages).
