Slipshod intellectual property protections and subsequent infringements have been longstanding grievances of foreign firms operating in China. And while this space has become more tightly regulated in recent years, understanding how to navigate China's mercurial IP space and developing a comprehensive IP protection strategy remains critical know-how for any foreign company in China.
AmCham Shanghai is pleased to present a GPS workshop on how companies can better protect their IP in China. The workshop will begin with a presentation by Shanghai Intellectual Property AdministrationDeputy Director General Zhang Yongzhong giving a rundown of the IP protection regulatory environment in Shanghai (in Chinese). Following this, Chen & Co. Law Firm Senior Consultant Dr. Xu Zhao will outline strategies for MNCs to protect their trade secrets (in English). Finally, Dr. Zhao will join Johnson & Johnson Director of Global Security – APAC Colin Chen and 3M Greater China Area IP Manager Min Gao to discuss how their companies protect IP in China (in English). This session will be off the record.
This event is an AmCham Shanghai Government Policy Support (GPS) workshop. The GPS series brings together different voices to deep-dive into Chinese government policy and its effects on American companies in China. In 2019 the program is focused across three tracks: U.S.-China Relations; Supply Chains; and R&D and Innovation.
