It was attended by many in-house counsels and law firms from the region such as Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, China, India and even from United States of America namely the law firm of Adli Law Group.
The setting of the hall that took place for the event.
The participants chit-chat with each other.
The event was kicked off with a welcome address by Marta Federici of Marcus Evans to the participants of both summits and followed by an opening address by Chris Neumeyer, Senior counsel of Lite-On Technology Corporation.
The IP Law Summit followed suit with an interesting presentation by Andrew Marshall, the SVP Legal & Business Affairs & GC, ESPN Star Sports on how to craft forcefully defensive digital procedure to map, track and half online infringement. He shared on the use of the “IP Fingerprinting” technology to trace users who stream ESPN’s content online.
The entire event had plenty of sharing sessions by knowledgeable and experienced in house counsels from various well known organisations such as ASUStek, Ford, Seagate Technology, Fox Channel, Sony, Motion Picture Association International, Coach Asia, Starhub, eBay and so on.

The sharing session.
One of the main highlights of the event is the One-to-one meeting sessions. Participating law firms and in-house counsels are given to meet the law firms or counsels of their choice in a comfortable and private setting. There, practitioners could share their services to the counsels whereas the counsels can meet the firms of numerous jurisdictions relevant to their needs.
One-to-one meeting session.
Although the daily event officially ends after dinner, some participants took their night further at the bars of Marina Sand Bay Hotel for.
The event ended after lunch on the third day. Participants bade farewell to their new found friends with handshakes and some hugs. We hope that the new found relationships will blossom further into mutually beneficial business relationship.
Please look forward to their forthcoming similar event which will be conducted at Hong Kong in November 2012.
