Patent Information Annual Conference (PIAC) of China 2014

Location: China National Convention Centre, Beijing

Date: Friday September 12 2014

Conversant’s Hiroyuki Takahori has been invited to be a featured presenter at the Patent Information Annual Conference (PIAC) of China, being held September 11 and 12, 2014 in Beijing.

Takahori-san will lead a conversation about principled patent licensing, including discussion of some key best practices based on Conversant Intellectual Property Management’s groundbreaking set of guidelines for ethical patent licensing practices. The presentation will explore Conversants belief that a small handful of patent owners is threatening innovation and needlessly raising costs, particularly for small businesses and inventors. Takahori-san will demonstrate how principled patent licensing is a two-way street that requires licensors and licensees alike to conduct themselves ethically and responsibly in order to achieve mutual economic benefits.
