A Sneak Peek of what’s popular – from past GFIP series

IP Week @ SG 2018 – GFIP Plenary 2 – Anatomy of the Asian Unicorns: Intangibles Versus Tangibles*


  • Juliette Saly, Anchor and Reporter, Bloomberg Radio and Television
  • Chatri Sityodtong, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, ONE Championship
  • Lynn Fu, Director of Brand Protection Cooperation, Platform Governance Department, Alibaba Group
  • Martin Hartono, Chief Executive Officer, GDP Venture
  • Dr. Raymond Chen Pei, Director of Intellectual Property, Didi Chuxing

The value of companies is increasingly found in intangible assets, including technology, data and branding. Today, more than 80 percent of the value of S&P500 companies are in intangible assets, an inversion in focus when compared to 1975, where less than 20 percent were intangibles. This phenomenal growth in intangible valuation is also taking place in Asia. Between 2012 and 2016, the intangible assets value of companies in Indonesia, China and India has more than doubled. The capacity to innovate through harnessing and commercialising intangible assets is now key for the survival and success of any enterprise. This plenary discusses the advent of intangibles, and its implications for Asia's most innovative companies.

IP Week @ SG 2019 – GFIP Legal Track 3A: Judges Panel*

  • Mark Lim, Director, Hearings and Mediation Department, Chief Legal Counsel, IPOS
  • Judge Cen Hongyu, Judge of IP Court, Supreme People's Court of China
  • Judicial Commissioner Dedar Singh Gill, Supreme Court of Singapore
  • Hon. Denny Chin, US Circuit Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
  • Dty Judge Douglas Campbell, Deputy High Court Judge, IP Enterprise Court

In the area of IP law, judges are often confronted with difficult cases requiring them to balance many different competing interests. In this session, the learned Judges will be discussing the following key issues: (1) copyright: does the "first sale doctrine" apply to goods in digital format? (2) patents: what should be the test for infringement of a second medical use patent? (3) trade marks: in order to obtain trade mark protection, is it necessary to show that consumers rely on that trade mark as a badge of origin, or is it sufficient to demonstrate that consumers associate the trade mark with a particular source? The Judges will discuss these issues in the context of a recent judgment from each of their jurisdictions.

IP Week @ SG 2017 – GFIP Business Track 1B: Made in Singapore – A Vision or A Dream?*

  • Professor Gerry George, Dean, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, Singapore Management University
  • Peter Ho, Chief Executive Officer, Hope Technik
  • Steve Leonard, Chief Executive Officer, SGInnovate
  • Eric Lew, Executive Director, Wong Fong Industries
  • Lim Chee Kean, Chief Executive Officer, Ascent Solutions

In the current economy where competition is stiff and time-to-market is shortened, innovation and value creation is everything. Globally successful companies not only need to respond quicker to market needs, but also look ahead to anticipate future trends. What should Singapore companies do to stand out from the pack and establish ourselves in the global market? What are the multitude of issues that Singapore companies need to consider while venturing abroad? How should Singapore companies align their IP strategies with their business strategies to capture greater value from their innovative solutions? Join us as our eminent speakers from the tech and engineering industries, as well as the start-up community share their perspectives on continual need to innovate in order to realise their "Made in Singapore" visions.
