US and China have signed the Phase One Trade Agreement, in which intellectual property protection is a major part. China has committed to enhancing intellectual property protection and enforcement in the Agreement. Recent court decisions and police actions have showed that China is trying to fulfill its commitments. It's a good time for the US companies to take this opportunity and fight intellectual property infringements more aggressively as priorities shall be given to the US intellectual property owners in the coming months and hopefully years.
In this webinar, we will share with you some of the best practices in protecting trademarks and trade secrets in China. The enforcement system in China can be complicated and sometimes confusing to people who don't have a lot of experiences in dealing with the system. It would only work efficiently and effectively if you find the right approach and apply the best strategy. Our firsthand experience will help you understand what works and what should be avoided.
We would like to keep the webinar as inactive as possible, you will have opportunities to ask questions and get straightforward answers from the speaker.
Topics to be covered:
A general introduction on IP enforcement system in China
Trademark protection: administrative, criminal, or civil? Pros & Cons of different approaches
Trade secret: What can be protected? How to protect? What we can do when trade secret is compromised?
