The Hellenic Copyright Organization (HCO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) on 14 December 2022 signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

The HCO and WIPO agree to cooperate on issues such as raising public awareness of ADR procedures in Greece. In addition, WIPO may offer, on a case-by-case basis, the use of WIPO's case management services and the use of the eADR online case management tool. Under the MoU, the HCO will implement various awareness and training activities regarding ADR.

Alternative Dispute Resolution is an initiative of the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center and includes cost-effective options such as mediation, arbitration, expedited arbitration and expert opinions that allow interested parties to settle domestic or cross-border commercial disputes.
