China IP Road Show

Strategies for trademark protection in China

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s China Intellectual Property (IP) Road Show comes to Baltimore, Maryland, on November 1, with a free, half-day program that will bring together experts from the U.S. government, academics, IP attorneys, and local business people to share their insights on China and trademark issues that will benefit U.S. IP rights holders.

The road show is one of a series of such programs that the USPTO is conducting across the country. It has been organized in cooperation with the University of Maryland’s Francis King Carey School of Law and the U.S. Export Assistance Center in Baltimore.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What you need to know about protecting your trademarks in China
  • Creating and managing a trademark portfolio in China
  • Enforcing IP rights in China, including from an e-commerce perspective
  • IP in China — the Maryland experience
