International IP Mediation

According to the WIPO website, "The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is dedicated to developing a balanced and accessible international intellectual property (IP) system, which rewards creativity, stimulates innovation and contributes to economic development while safeguarding the public interest."

This all sounds interesting. But what I really like about WIPO is their Arbitration & Mediation Center which "was established in 1994 to offer Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options, in particular arbitration and mediation, for the resolution of international commercial disputes between private parties. Developed by leading experts in cross-border dispute settlement, the procedures offered by the Center are widely recognized as particularly appropriate for technology, entertainment and other disputes involving intellectual property."

Sound interesting? Relevant to the work you do or are interested in? Click here to go directly to the WIPO Arbitration & Mediation Center to learn more.
