Strategies for IP protection in China
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s China Intellectual Property (IP) Road Show comes to Austin, Texas, with a free, one-day program that brings together experts from the U.S. government, IP attorneys, and local business people to share their insights on ways that U.S. rights holders can protect their IP in China.
This program is one of a series of China IP Road Shows that the USPTO is conducting across the country. Topics to be covered include:
- Creating and managing your IP portfolio in China
- Enforcing your IP rights in China
- USPTO resources on IP in China for U.S. right holders
- Enforcing your IP rights in the United States
- IP in China — the Texas experience
The USPTO’s afternoon program on protecting IP in China is part of a day-long “International IP Event” being held at Cirrus Logic. It follows a morning session, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m., that consists of a presentation by senior officials from the European Patent Office. Separate registration is required for the morning session.
By arrangement with the State Bar of Texas, attendees are eligible to claim 3.25 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit.
