The world’s rising patent powerhouse: new IAM Special Report released
IAM has today released our latest quarterly Special Report – ‘The World’s Rising Patent Powerhouse: A window into the key drivers and developments shaping the Asia-Pacific IP landscape’. In the report, we feature some of the region's preeminent voices and take a close look at the data underlying the top patent portfolio owners in China as well as the movers and shakers on the secondary patent market.
Our first chapter, ‘Spotlight on the Market’, sees Xiaomi’s former IP strategy head Paul Lin, now managing director of Eagle Forest, sit down with IAM to talk dealmaking strategy in the licensing and patent acquisition space and share his top tips for negotiation. Meanwhile, Mark Cohen from Berkeley Law offers a US perspective on lesser-known aspects of the challenging relationship that exists between the global powers of China and the United States.
IAM also spoke with the top figures at leading corporations in the region about their IP strategies. Head of IP strategy Ran Xu offers his insights into Xiaomi’s journey in his own words, while Huawei’s IP head Alan Fan discusses how he bolstered the company’s patent strategy during turbulent times.
Elsewhere, ASICS’s IP lead Koji Shimomura talks IP strategy in the sporting goods market and how his company is leveraging its patents to compete on the world stage and Nutrition Technology’s Martin Zorrilla revealed how his company leverages its IP portfolio to achieve commercial success in a niche industry.
The report also tackles some of the major trends that the Asia-Pacific region is facing, including insight into the SEP landscapes in China and India as well as how South Korea is looking to amend its legislation to keep up with the AI inventorship debate and Singapore is looking increasingly friendly to non-practicing entities (NPEs).
IAM would like to thank all of the authors who contributed to the report.
