This program on the latest developments in intellectual property (IP) law in China is part of a series of quarterly updates from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on IP developments in China.

Between September and December 2021, China passed and implemented several IP-related measures. This one-hour program provided an opportunity for IP attorneys, businesses, inventors, and other IP stakeholders to get access to a unique and concise source of information, unlikely to be found elsewhere, including segments on:

  • patents
  • trademarks
  • copyrights
  • trade secrets
  • IP enforcement

These topic-specific segments were led by senior USPTO attorneys with extensive China IP experience.
