Strategies for Intellectual Property Protection in China

May 9 | 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

We know despite success in the Chinese market, many U.S. companies have reported that two major factors – the infringement of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and China’s indigenous innovation policies have undermined their competitive positions.  U.S. companies reported losses associated with IPR infringement in China include losses in sales, profits, and license and royalty fees, as well as damage to brand names and product reputation. Given this, there is a need to better prepare U.S. companies in protecting their IPR when entering the Chinese market and we want to help our local companies on how best they can protect their most valuable asset, their IPR – specifically in China.

This program will deliver critically important information about intellectual property to audiences that need it most — start-ups, entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses, independent creators, manufacturers and inventors. The information is presented by experts from multiple government agencies whose missions advance stakeholders’ intellectual property interests.
