Second Global Forum on Intellectual Property 2009

Following the success of its inaugural Global Forum on Intellectual Property in August 2006, the IP Academy Singapore now organises the second Global Forum on Intellectual Property 2009 (GFIP 2009) on 8 and 9 January 2009 at the Raffles City Convention Centre in Singapore.

According to Chairman David Llewelyn, GFIP 2009 is "shaping up to be the foremost multidisciplinary IP conference in the Asia Pacific region for 2009". The theme of GFIP 2009 (which is expected to draw about 500 delegates from various IP related fields around the world) is "The Evolving Intellectual Property Ecosystem: Conflicts or Consensus?".

Finance issues feature prominently in the provisional program: on day one there is a session on IP and Intellectual Asset Management (for example featuring a panel discussion on maximising IA revenue from a tax perspective) and on day two there is a session planed on IP & Finance.

More information on the GFIP 2009 and the value of IP assets is available here and here; more information on the IP Academy Singapore – established in 2003 as part of a national initiative to develop Singapore into an IP hub - here.
