Nordic Chambers Lunch Presentation “China IPR”

While China government was infamous for being lax on protection of IPR (Intellectual Property Rights), domestic companies now have recognized IP’s importance when they are restructuring their business from manufacturing to R&D and product branding. China authorities are revising IP laws constantly to cope with political and economic needs. China’s IP enforcement system is now vastly improved over what it once was. Foreign companies should understand the rules of game and formulate an IP strategy adaptive to China’s IP regime.

Topics to be covered:

* Importance of IPR Strategy Before/After Entering China and Government Master Development Policies
* China IPR Registration and Protection
* Corporate IPR Strategy in Practice / Trade Secrets
* China IPR Infringements and Enforcement
