Business owners doing business in or with China may find their valuable intellectual property (IP) being infringed there. Even those not operating in China may find counterfeit versions of their products for sale there or in the United States, or their trademarks registered in China without their knowledge. At this free program on March 23 in Minnesota, experts from the U.S. government, IP attorneys, and local businesspeople will share insights on how U.S. rights holders can protect and enforce their IP in China and the United States.

Topics will include:

  • What small and medium-sized businesses need to know about protecting all types of IP in China
  • IP developments in China: Challenges and opportunities in a shifting IP environment
  • Enforcing IP rights, in both China and the United States, against infringement originating in China
  • U.S. government resources for U.S. companies
  • IP in China: The Minnesota experience

This program is one of a series of China IP Road Shows that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) conducts across the country. It has been organized in cooperation with the U.S. Commercial Service – Minneapolis. For more information about the series, visit the China IP Road Show homepage.

This is an in-person only event.
