BANGKOK (NNT) – The Department of Intellectual Property has introduced its online dispute settlement services covering intellectual property cases that it developed with the Thai Arbitration Institute.
The brand new service will be officially in operation from January 2021.
The online dispute settlement platform for intellectual property cases will assist with cases related to copyright, patents, and trademark infringements using digital technology.
The new system will allow cases to be filed online, enabling settlement sessions via online chats and video conferences, and allowing fully online formal settlement processes to achieve faster, more convenient agreements with less chance of confrontation between the two sides, and at a lower cost.
When settling disputes on the online system, the parties involved will have to agree to a mutual confidentiality agreement that forbids facts and evidence from being shared during the process and from being used in a court filing.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Commerce, Jurin Laksanawisit said today the settlement service will help reduce the burden on all parties from legal challenges.
Since 2002, there have so far been 621 disputes, with 331 cases successfully settled; recorded as more than half the disputes at 54%.
The new online settlement service will be available from January 2021 on the website www.thac.or.th
