Support to the IP Circle
Saint Island, as a member of the professional IP group in Taiwan, commits to foster the healthy and steady growth of Taiwan’s IP laws. For the past four decades, we spare no opportunity to participate in formulating and implementing government policies, as well as shaping and improving our industrial environment. We pledge to serve as a bridge that helps Taiwan connect to the global IP world via our works with foreign professionals to procure and protect IP rights abroad for Taiwan entities. In the future, we will continue to take our responsibility seriously as a member of the IP circle and work actively alongside with government agencies, academic institutions, IP professional associations, industrial groups and right holders, to provide them with counselling and advice.
Support to Small and Medium Enterprises and Innovators
Saint Island started out with the mission to provide local SMEs and innovators with quality and professional services. We grow with them and understand their needs. We acknowledge that they do not have as much strong financial backing as big or international companies, and realize their needs from us to appropriate knowledge in respect of IP application and implementation, especially when they desire to create a global IP portfolio.
Henceforth, Saint Island will continue to maintain our initial mission to serve SMEs and innovators by providing them with comprehensive protections of their IP rights and with the latest international IP news. We hope that in this way our SME clients can sustain a continuing growth, which, in turn, will contribute to the development of Taiwan’s industry and economy.
Support to IP Learning of Professionals of Other Fields
Since 2007 through 2018, Saint Island has been providing IP law internship opportunities annually in line with an internship program initiated by the Academy for the Judiciary, Ministry of Justice that invites private firms to partake in instructing judge candidates, who under the law are required to take a two-year term training designed by the Academy before they pass the final exam of the Academy to become qualified judges or prosecutors.
Because IP law is a specialized law regime which not all of our guest judge candidates are familiar with, our patent attorneys and lawyers would meticulously prepare their lectures and course materials for the two-week course every year, with the objective of providing these future judges with a basic understanding of IP law practices and trends both here and abroad at the shortest possible time. Through this positive interaction, we hope to boost their interests in the area of IP law and such interests we believe would prove beneficial to their future judicial works.
