AIPEC Summit 2012

Beijing, China
30 May 2012
Hosted By: the Asia Intellectual Property Exchange Council (AIPEC)

The Asia Intellectual Property Exchange Council (AIPEC) hosted its second annual summit in Beijing on 30 May - 2 June 2012. The summit brought together 300 IP professionals and IP owners to explore collaboration opportunities within Asia's IP commercialization platforms. NERA Vice President SĂ©bastien Gonnet delivered two presentations: the first focused on damage evaluation in patent litigation, and the second focused on the economic framework for valuing patents.

Asian countries -- notably China, Taiwan, and Korea -- host a growing number of large R&D intensive companies that file an increasing number of patents and employ aggressive strategies of buying, selling, and licensing large portfolios of patents. IP litigation has also been surging in China in recent years. With this in mind, Mr. Gonnet discussed the situations in which an accurate IP valuation is necessary, and described the techniques to be employed for valuing IP in both a litigation and non-litigation context, drawing from the vast experience and intellectual capital of NERA's IP Practice in the US. The recent publication in Chinese of NERA's book, Economic Approaches to Intellectual Property Policy, Litigation, and Management was well-received by the audience, given the relative lack of literature on the subject in China.
