Intro

 

“Anything under the sun made by man in Patentable” This is an insightful expression of the US Supreme Court’s patent in the 1980s. There was a background story for this statement.

General Electronic (GE) applied a patent for “oil-eating bacteria” to solve the oil spill incidents.

A Patent application was filed by GE but it was rejected. It was a general understanding that

living things were not patentable subject matter. GE appealed and finally got a patent.

This bacterium was made by transformed genes. US Supreme Court decided that

a patent should be granted under the statement of “living things can be a subject to be patent.

Subsequently, research and invest of bio-industry were increased enormously high. 

 

There are another interesting case at UK. World’s subway map were created and

referred to London underground tube map by Harry beck. On 1933,

Harry Beck thought there was a problem with subway map and he drew up the 45 degrees

both horizontal and vertical diagram subway map and got patent for it.

Now whole world is using his style map. 

For case of Korea, on year 1990, right after IMF crisis, ‘F-Killer’ of Samsung Pharm was sold to

Johnson & Johnson, Korea amount of 38.7 billion KRW. At that time, the factory value of

‘F-Killer’ was 9 billion KRW and the brand value was 29.7 billion KRW. Which means

brand value was 3 times bigger than factory value. 

 

Intellectual Property is to put creation into the bowl of law. The desire to create is enriched by

reasonable rewards. In a society where intellectual property is not guaranteed, creativity and

development cannot be expected. Creativity and development can be active when intellectual

property is guaranteed. However, guarantee of intellectual property is relatively weak in Korea.

Korea is well known for active intellectual property application based on patent application standards.

But also has a stigma of infringement on intellectual property in the standard of patent infringement.

 

Even one company has rough time to get patent, it is very comment for competitors to steal that

patents easily. Also this intellectual property compensation is pretty low. On year 2015,

World Economic Forum (WEF) announced Korea’s intellectual property protection is ranked

68th out of 144 countries. Especially SMEs are weaker than others. Korea Federation of SMEs

reported 51% of SMEs have higher chances to get into patent dispute and 41% are seems to be

defenseless on patent dispute. 

 

Intellectual property disputes are getting serious in worldwide. Samsung and Apple are one of the

good example. Google and Oracle, they had intellectual property dispute over Java-programing case.

In the United States, they are taking serious action by trade retaliation against China’s intellectual

property infringement at the national level.

 

Now it is important to create fair intellectual property ecosystem between countries and companies.

Intellectual property’s ‘opportunity to create’ should be equal and ‘application processes’ should be

fair and lastly the ‘protection result’ should be defined.

Therefore, Financial News and Korea intellectual property office are hosting ‘the 8th International

Intellectual Property & Industrial Security Conference’ at the Grand Ballroom of

Seoul Westin Chosun Hotel on June 7th, 2018.  In this conference, there will be discussion under

the main theme of ‘Requirements of innovation growth & fair intellectual property ecosystem’ with

industrial experts from domestic and overseas.
