ALI Project Prompts New Collaboration in Resolving International Intellectual Property Disputes

An ALI project on resolving international intellectual property disputes is now coming into its own. It was presented in January 2015 by two of the project reporters at a seminar in Geneva held at the headquarters of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

The project, Intellectual Property: Principles Governing Jurisdiction, Choice of Law, and Judgments in Transnational Disputes, was published in 2008 and provides a comprehensive framework for considering issues of private international law in intellectual property disputes. Serving as Reporters on the project were Rochelle C. Dreyfuss of New York University School of Law; Jane C. Ginsburg of Columbia Law School; and François Dessemontet of Lausanne University in Switzerland.
On January 16, Professors Dreyfuss and Ginsburg presented the American Law Institute’s work at a WIPO seminar in Geneva and collaborated with the International Law Association to consolidate the recommendations of the ALI project with similar work developed by the Max Planck Institute for the European Union and a consortium of Japanese and Korean intellectual property lawyers interested in streamlining Asian litigation.
