The CEIPI is pleased to announce the release of a new publication in its new collection dedicated to Monographs.
- Frédéric Benech, Guillaume de La Bigne (dir.), La médiation au service de la propriété intellectuelle, Collection du CEIPI, Les Monographies, 1, 2023.
The field of intellectual property, just like that of business law in general, has been opening up to mediation for several years, known as one of the alternative dispute resolution methods (DRM). This method has already been developed in Anglo-Saxon countries and by international organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
Under the aegis of a mediator, this method allows the parties to dialogue and seek an amicable solution to their conflicts, thus enabling them to avoid the hazards and costs of litigation, and even to maintain their business relationship.
If there is currently no book in French specifically dealing with mediation in the service of intellectual property, this book remedies this imbalance by giving the floor to practitioners, all of whom are professionals in intellectual property and also experienced mediators, trained in particular at the Institut de Formation à la Médiation et à la Négociation (IFOMENE).
