We invite you to join our distinguished panel of intellectual property experts for this informative and interactive discussion, which will position you to preserve and enhance your company’s ability to protect and commercialize intellectual property in China’s rapidly changing IP environment.
U.S. brands have long been popular in China. Now Chinese brands are beginning to make in-roads into the U.S. But as the opportunities open up for Chinese businesses, so do traps for the unwary. There are significant differences between U.S. and Chinese trademark law and practice, and lawyers and business-people alike need to be aware of them. Decisions made in respect of U.S. branding but based only on a knowledge of Chinese trademark law are likely to result in serious problems in the U.S. – and many U.S. businesses have made that same error in China by adopting U.S. practices. Learn about some of the key trademark differences between the U.S. and China – both from a legal perspective and a marketing perspective.
