Doing business in China is becoming a norm and necessity for American businesses as the Chinese economy has become the second largest in the world. At the same time, transactions of intellectual properties are transforming the world’s business as a whole due to the advances in consumer electronics, medicines, precision machineries and medical devices. There is no question that China had a slow start in its protections of IP rights, but the Chinese has improved its laws, awareness and enforcements dramatically in the last few years.
This 90-minute CLE program aims to provide a brief introduction to the different types of intellectual property protections (i.e., patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret) in China as you consider entry to the Chinese market, as well as major differences between the American and Chinese court and enforcement systems as forums to protect your IP rights in China. This program will also offer some practical tips of how to avoid costly mistakes regarding IP rights in China.”
