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).
