The Korea Copyright Commission (KCC) and the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO Center) collaborate to promote the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to resolve copyright related disputes. As part of the collaboration, parties to international disputes can opt for WIPO Mediation benefitting from a reduced fee scheme and the international expertise of WIPO neutrals.
ADR procedures, such as mediation and arbitration, constitute alternatives to court litigation. ADR is appropriate for most intellectual property (IP) related commercial disputes, and especially between parties from different jurisdictions. ADR can enhance the parties control over the dispute resolution process and, if well managed, it can save time and money. The WIPO Center offers ADR options to enable parties to efficiently settle their domestic or cross-border disputes.
WIPO ADR procedures are organized to stimulate positive opportunities for party settlement. Almost 70% of the mediation procedures administered by the WIPO Center have settled. Even in arbitration, 40% of WIPO cases settle before any formal decision is issued.
Reduced administration and mediator’s fees apply to the cases referred to WIPO Mediation by KCC.
