Free Webinar: Protecting IPRs in China with Mark Cohen

Protecting Intellectual Property Rights in China
Friday, February 24th, 2006 8am US-Pacific/10am US-Central/11am US-Eastern/4pm London/ February 25th, 12am Shanghai

There may be no greater challenge to foreign investors in China today then protecting intellectual property rights (IPR). While China’s IPR legal framework is widely recognized as sufficient, enforcement remains a continuing source of disappointment. In the last six months; however, several long simmering IPR cases have been decided in favor of foreign investors in Chinese courts. The question is, are these isolated victories or the first harbingers of change?

Attend a special webcast organized by the US Council for International Business (USCIB), featuring Mark Cohen, Intellectual Property Attaché for the US Embassy in Beijing. After 20 years of experience in counseling on intellectual property issues in China, Mark has served as the US Government’s lead China-based advocate for improved IPR conditions in China since 2004.

If you can't attend the webinar, the check out "Inside China's Teeming World of Fake Goods," by Kristi Heim of The Seattle Times, "The Counterfeiting Paradox" from AT Kearney, and other links available at the IP Dragon.
