Michele Herman Added to List of WIPO Mediators. I am honored by WIPO’s recent invitation to join its Arbitration and Mediation Center’s List of Mediators. WIPO has a growing caseload of disputes it is helping parties resolve through its Arbitration and Mediation Center, and more importantly, a 70% success rate in settling disputes through mediation. See https://www.wipo.int/amc/en/center/caseload.html. Recently, WIPO and the USPTO signed a memorandum of understanding to: “Cooperate on activities that will lend efficiency and effectiveness to the resolution of disputed standard essential patent matters by leveraging existing WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center and USPTO resources.” See https://www.uspto.gov/about-us/news-updates/uspto-and-wipo-agree-partner-dispute-resolution-efforts-related-standard. I hope my unique experience involving standards essential patents and related FRAND negotiations, as well as software and patent licensing matters can be put to good use as a WIPO mediator.
