China has been the world leader in patent applications for the past five years, receiving more than 1,100,000 in 2015 — more than the US and Japan combined.The country’s thirst for intellectual property is reshaping the global patent market via the emergence of patent hungry
state-owned entities and a burgeoning litigation environment. Following the NDRC’s landmark antirust ruling and penalty against Qualcomm in 2015, other regulatory agencies have initiated “copycat” investigations with an ever broader scope. The South Korean competition agency
followed up with even tougher penalties while Taiwanese and US antitrust enforcers have also launched probes of the chip-maker’s business model than threatens to have serious ramifications across the industry—Apple has launched billion dollar civil suits against Qualcomm in the US, the UK and China on the back of this enhanced regulatory scrutiny.

The 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds

HKIAC is pleased to be a supporting organisation of the 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds.

The Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB) is holding the 5th FDI Moot Asia-Pacific Regional Rounds with Center for International Legal Studies (CILS) and Seoul National University School of Law.

Increasing international investment, the proliferation of international investment treaties and contracts have contributed to the development of international law that defines obligations between host States and foreign investors and refers to internationalized arbitration procedures for resolving related disputes. The FDI Moot addresses such investment disputes.

The 2017 FDI Moot case considers how Mercuria, a State faced with a “greyscale” epidemic, has treated a foreign investor, patent-holder of the active ingredient in an effective greyscale treatment, by first breaching a supply agreement, which was the basis for the investor’s production facility investments in Mercuria, and failing to enforce the consequent arbitration award and by then granting a compulsory license to a state-owned manufacturer.
