Recent patent litigation tsunami initiated by generic pharmaceutical companies in Korea

Pursuant to the Free Trade Agreement between Korea and the U.S., Korea has introduced a patent-product approval linkage system (so-called “Green List System”) in two stages (on March 15, 2012 and March 15, 2015). Immediately after said system went into full effect on March 15, 2015, Korean generic companies filed over 2,000 invalidation and scope confirmation actions to qualify for first generic exclusivity. Such patent litigation tsunami was attributed by the unique aspects of Korean patent law and litigation system.
