Resolving governance gaps to counter IPR infringements

Paris, 12 and 13 June 2019

Following the IP Enforcement Summits in London in 2014 and Berlin in 2017, the third International Forum on IP enforcement will bring together key European and international decision makers, enforcement agencies, multinational companies, and other private actors as well as relevant stakeholders to discuss, trends and alternative enforcement techniques for intellectual property both at EU and international level in a prospective and dynamic setting.

The International Forum on IP Enforcement 2019 seeks to promote evidence-based policy making, to reinforce cooperation between all international actors involved, to facilitate building a common, coherent and effective strategy to support IPR enforcement and address governance gaps within the EU, the OECD countries and internationally. The forum will bring together high-level representatives and stakeholders, focusing on policy-making to combat IPR infringement.

The event will take place at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) headquarters in Paris.

The programme:

Panel I. How international organisations can help in IPR enforcement
The main objective of this panel is to identify and explore how international players can align their strategic planning and collectively improve IPR enforcement governance at international level. Governance of Free Trade Zones, dealing with enforcement challenges related to dangerous counterfeit goods and trying to find synergies and enable information exchange for better IP enforcement will be among the topics to be discussed in the breakout sessions.

Panel II. The role of technology and intermediaries when countering trade in counterfeits
During the second panel efforts will be made to identify opportunities for strengthening IPR enforcement in trade. How to address copyright infringements, intensify the fight against the sale of counterfeits and new technologies for better IP enforcement will be among the topics to be discussed in the breakout sessions.

Panel III. New alliances and partnerships for better IP enforcement
The panel will share experiences and discuss new opportunities for better IP enforcement.

IP Forum Hosts & Keynote Speakers:

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is a global economic forum working to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. It provides a space in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.

The European Commission has responsibility for ensuring that appropriate mechanisms of protection and enforcement of IP rights are in place in the EU. It also works to improve their protection and enforcement in third countries.

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is the EU agency responsible for managing the EU trade mark and the registered Community design. In 2012, the Office was given the responsibility for the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights which works to support the protection and enforcement of IP rights.
