China’s Intellectual Property System and American Companies: A Conversation with Experts and Practitioners

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) have been a longstanding concern for foreign companies operating in China, particularly concerning the relevant legal protections in place and effectiveness of enforcement mechanisms with the issue featuring prominently in bilateral trade discussions and even an entire chapter dedicated to IP in the Phase One Agreement. As tensions between China and the US continue to escalate, there has been increasing concern over a potential weakening of intellectual property protections for MNCs and retaliation for acts taken by foreign government or companies against China overseas. What does this mean for American companies and how can they best protect their IP and minimize other risks while operating in China?

On Monday, May 15th at 8:30 pm (EST), USCBC is pleased to host distinguished experts and practitioners Mark Cohen, Jill Ge, and Michael Mangelson for an engaging discussion about the current state and outlook on intellectual property rights in China. Our panel will be available to answer your questions to help your company better understand the IP landscape while operating in the PRC.

This event will be virtual and off the record.

The deadline to register for this program is on May 15 at 2:00 pm (ET). This event is for USCBC member companies and invited guests only. Registration is required. Please register using your work email.
