Azerbaijan pledges IP reforms, plain packaging in Singapore, and Ecuador plans mediation center: news round-up

Monday, 6th November 2018

"cuador to open IP mediation center – It was confirmed today that the Ecuador’s National Service of Intellectual Rights (SENADI) has signed a pledge to open a mediation center dedicated to intellectual property issues. WIPO general director Francis Gurry met with SENADI head Santiago Cevallos to sign a memorandum of understanding in regards to the implementation of such a center. According to the registry, the center’s objective will be for the “immediate solution of IP conflicts, avoiding the lengthening of the judicial processes with their high costs that sometimes take years without being able to be solved”. The first step will be for WIPO to conduct training to mediations that will be part of the center. The move should be seen as a positive, both for legal practitioners on the ground and for brand owners who can use such a place to quickly – and hopefully amicably and at less cost – resolve IP disputes in the country. (TJL)"
