Item description for Intellectual Property Law in Korea (Max Planck Series on Asian Intellectual Property Set) by Christopher Heath...

Although Korea is fully assimilated into today's international intellectual property regime, seekers of intellectual property rights in Korea may still encounter vestiges of both the system applied during the Japanese occupation (1910 1945), which was based on common law, and the subsequent civil codes designed to replace it. It is particularly in the areas of administrative and enforcement procedure that practitioners require specialized knowledge if they are to move confidently and ensure adequate legal protection in Korea of patents, copyrights, designs, trade marks, computer programs and other intangibles.

Intellectual Property Law in Korea provides this knowledge in considerable depth. Five Korean practitioners spare no pains to clarify all the essential details of practice and procedure in the major areas of intellectual property law in their country. For example, they include specific guidance on such matters as the following:

  • the "pipeline" protection available for certain chemical and pharmaceutical patents;
  • the domain or jurisdiction of various institutions administering intellectual property rights;
  • how a patent attorney qualifies for practice;
  • how infringement cases move through the Korean court system;
  • available remedies and defenses in infringement actions;
  • the limited interplay of civil and criminal actions;
  • the use of the Customs Act to prohibit importation;
  • technical evaluation of utility models; and
  • tax rules on transfer and license.

    The author's approach throughout is eminently practical, although legal rationales and underpinnings are fully explained when necessary. If a particular area of law has been significantly affected by a judicial decision (as in the important trade mark cases Chanel and Pfizer), the chapter covering that area provides a full and clear analysis. An appendix supplies the full texts of the major Korean laws in the field in force as of 2002. As one of the worlds leaders in the design and manufacture of semiconductor chips and other computer hardware and software, Korea accommodates a great number of intellectual property applications and registrations. Its intellectual property rights system is sound and well established, and offers excellent protection to those who come to it prepared. This book is an effective and substantial means to that end.
