Topics will include a review of China’s laws and regulations that may affect how a business protects and enforces its intellectual property, how best to protect business assets to avoid intellectual property problems from China in the first place, how to recognize when an intellectual property asset has been infringed, what to do if infringement occurs, and what the U.S. government is doing to improve the intellectual property protection and enforcement environment in China for U.S. industry. Speakers at the seminar will include representatives from U.S. law firms servicing clients in China, Chinese law firms representing U.S. companies, academic experts on China's intellectual property system, representatives from various U.S. companies, Chinese government officials, and members of the USPTO’s China intellectual property rights team.
