                Singapore, 12 November 2019 – The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) saw its first successful multi-jurisdictional IP mediation under the Enhanced Mediation Promotion Scheme (EMPS), which was launched on 1 April 2019. The case involved a dispute over Singapore and foreign IP rights between an American company, Aftershokz, LLC and a Thai businessman, Mr Suravit Kongmebhol.

                美國公司Aftershokz與泰國商♂人⌒Suravit Kongmebhol之間的跨多國商標糾紛案。該案於2019年4月1日啟動調解程序,於2019年8月底順利完》成調解,是新加坡知識產權局首例調解成∑ 功的跨多國商標糾紛案。



                The dispute was resolved under the auspices of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Arbitration and Mediation Center, which has its only overseas office in Singapore. 




                Aftershokz, LLC and Mr Kongmebhol opted for mediation to resolve their disputes at IPOS over the registration of the marks “AfterSHOKZ”, “OPTISHOZ” as well as “SHOKZ”. Both parties further agreed to extend the scope of the mediation to foreign IP rights in Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand. The parties reached a win-win outcome after 19.5 hours of mediation, and ended with a settlement agreement after midnight into the next day. (See weblink for more details of the case)

                Aftershokz與泰國商人Suravit Kongmebhol的糾紛涉及商標“AfterSHOKZ” ,“OPTISHOKZ”和“SHOKZ”,涉及“越南、印度◣尼西亞、菲律賓、新加坡,馬來西亞』和泰國”等6個東南亞國家。 經過19.5小時的調停,雙方達成了雙贏的結果,並在以和解協議告終。



                Aftershokz was incorporated and founded in 2011. It is widely regarded as the global market leader in relation to bone conduction headphones. AfterShokz deploys bone conduction technology to transmit music directly from cheekbones to inner ears, thus bypassing the eardrum. This allows users to listen to tunes without tuning out to the rest of the world. Apart from headphones, AfterShokz also manufactures and sells a range of other accessories and related products, including without limitation portage storage cases, water bottles, sports towels and sports belts.

                Aftershokz於2011年成立,在骨∑傳導耳機領域處於全球領先地位。Aftershokz利用骨傳導技術,繞過耳膜將音樂直接通過顴骨傳導到內耳。此項技術使得用戶聽音樂㊣ 的同時,不受外☆界幹擾。另外,除了耳機,Aftershokz還生產出售一系列▼的配件和相關產品,包括搬運╲箱、水瓶、運動〗毛巾和運動帶。



                Alternative dispute resolution is becoming increasingly popular amongst businesses and individuals looking to resolve their disputes more effectively and satisfactorily[2]. Mediation offers a more cost-effective and swifter option to resolving IP disputes globally and further helps maintain relationships between the parties.




                Both parties expressed satisfaction with the process and its effectiveness. Mr Kongmebhol said: “I am very glad that mediation in Singapore has helped us resolve the existing disputes and achieved a win-win outcome for all parties.”IP Manager and Ms Daisy Gong, IP Consultant of Aftershokz, LLC said: “We are very satisfied with the mediation. The mediator was very professional and responsible, and made great efforts to ensure the success of the mediation. The professionalism and execution ability of our lawyers are extremely worthy of recognition and played a decisive role in the outcome of the mediation. The success of the mediation is very significant to us. Apart from settling existing disputes, the settlement ensured the protection of our company’s brand image and the rapid development of our business in Southeast Asia.”

                雙方對調解結果表示滿意。Aftershokz公司的知識產權經理及其知識產權顧問(五卐洲普華知識產權-龔霞女士)表示 :“我們對調解感到非常滿意。調解員非常專業且負責任,為確保調解成功做出了巨大的努力█。我們對律師的專業水平和執行能力非常認可,調解成功★對我們非常重要。除了解決現有的爭議外,和解還確保了公司品牌形象的保ㄨ護以及我們在〖東南亞業務的快速發展。”



                Ms Joyce Tan , Managing Director of Joyce A. Tan & Partners LLC, also the mediator for the case, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for mediation to do its magic! The happy outcome for both disputants could not have been achieved through conventional contentious proceedings. It covered multiple forms of trade marks across different countries and resolved contentious proceedings pending in several jurisdictions. Parties were empowered to take a pragmatic and commercially meaningful approach to concluding the matter, and were able to move forward in their businesses with certainty on where they stood relative to each other.

                此案的調解人(新加坡領欣律師事務ζ 所-陳淑卿女士)認為:通過傳統的訴訟程序可能難以讓當事雙方均滿○意,調解機制¤卻可以發揮這樣的魔力。



                Mr Mark Lim, Director of Hearings and Mediation Department in IPOS said: “With globalisation of trade and the increasingly international creation and exploitation of IP, disputes over IP rights often span multiple jurisdictions and involve sensitive information and dynamic relationships. This case is only one of others worldwide, where parties with IP issues were able to amicably resolve their differences through mediation. We are pleased that in this case, the parties, neither of whom are Singaporean, worked out an amicable settlement in Singapore for their IP rights in six ASEAN member states. To our knowledge, the EMPS is the first scheme in the world which directly reimburses parties’ mediation-related costs. Entrepreneurs and enterprises in Singapore, as well as foreign parties with disputes at IPOS can use this scheme for a business-oriented and cost-effective approach towards resolving their IP disputes globally.”

                IPOS(新加坡知識產權聆︽訊與調解司司長)聆訊與調解〖部主任Mark Lim(林方前)表示:隨著貿易♀的全球化以及知識產權的國際化,知識產權爭議通常跨越多個轄區。EMPS是世界上※第一個“調解補償計◥劃(給予調解雙方一定金額的補償)”。 新加坡的企業家和企業,以及在IPOS上有爭議的外國∮各方,都可以通過調解計劃來解決全球知識產權㊣糾紛。



                With Asia’s rise in innovation and the region accounting for more than two-thirds of global IP filing activity in 2018[4], Singapore embarked on legislative changes to its IP regime, providing innovation-driven enterprises with greater access to alternative routes for IP dispute resolution. In November 2017, the Mediation Act came into force, making it easier for mediated settlement agreements to be enforced, further advancing the attractiveness of mediation as a fair and cost-effective route. Singapore also led the Singapore Convention on Mediation, the first United Nations treaty to be named after Singapore, that provides a uniform international framework to enforce mediated agreements.

                2017年11月,新加坡《調解法》生效,這使調解的執行更№加順利,進一步提高了調解作為一種公平且具有成№本效益的途徑的吸引力。 《新加坡︾調解公約》於2018年12月20日在第73屆聯合國大會上通過,適用於調解產生的國際和解協議。《新加坡調解公約》確立了關於援用和解協議〗的權利以及執行和解協議的統一法律框架,是一々部便於國際貿易並促進將調解作為一種解決貿易爭端★的有效替代方法的文書。
