Professor Joy Xiang Invited to Present at Leading International Conferences and U.S. IP Programs
During November 1-12, 2021, Professor Joy Xiang was invited to participate in the latest WIPO-WTO Colloquium for IP Teachers as an observer and moderator. The Colloquium is a joint effort between the WTO and the WIPO to strengthen IP teaching and research capacities in developing countries and economies in transition. It is a two-week intensive program exploring key IP topics relevant to global trade and development. Professor Xiang’s one of the handful of professors invited to moderate the Colloquium. Per her specialties in global IP, patent law, and IP strategies, Professor Xiang was invited to moderate the discussion on IP Jurisprudence. In this discussion, we explored the implementation and reading of the WTO TRIPS Agreement by domestic institutions, the controversial anti-suit injunction practice in cross-border IP disputes such as SEP litigations, and national IP strategies by various jurisdictions. Professor Xiang also commented on international technology transfer based on her research. The Colloquium will publish Professor Xiang’s writing on Intellectual Property, Antimonopoly Law and Sustainable Development in China in a special edition of its peer-reviewed Colloquium Papers series.
On November 9, 2021, Professor Xiang was also invited to present at the 39th Annual Congress of the International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property (ATRIP), organized by University of Copenhagen this year. ATRIP subsequently invited Professor Xiang to contribute to its upcoming book “The Exploitation of IPR – Finding the Right Balance” with one of her upcoming writings on access to know-how.
Leading U.S. IP Programs also have invited Professor Xiang to present her scholarship. On September 30, 2021, she was invited to present the project Intellectual Property, Antitrust, and Access to Essential Technologies at the Annual Academic Roundtable at University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law (#4 Leading IP Program in the U.S.).
