China’s Recent IP Changes and View From the Ground: A Conversation with USPTO

The Chinese government has recently taken several measures to strengthen China’s intellectual property rights system, including regulatory changes that address key concerns of US businesses. At the end of April, the National People’s Congress Standing Committee (NPCSC) approved amendments that address bad faith trademark activity, IP loss as a result of government inspections, and trade secrets protection. To understand these and other legislative changes, please join the US-China Business Council on Tuesday, May 14, for a discussion with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Elaine Wu, Senior Counsel for China, Office of Policy and International Affairs, USPTO, and several attorney advisors from the USPTO China Team, will provide an update on recent developments in China’s IP environment, and share insights from on the ground that will benefit US rights holders.

This event is for USCBC member companies and invited guests only. Registration is required.
