IP in the Trade War: Strategies for a New Normal

Please join us for a conversation with Mark Cohen, Senior Fellow and Director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology Asia IP project, on the role of intellectual property in the trade war. Mark has unparalleled public, private and academic experience in China’s IP environment. As a former US IP Attaché in Beijing and Senior Counsel to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Mark brings unique insight on how the US and Chinese governments approach IP negotiations. And having served as general counsel to major multinationals, Mark also offers a valuable corporate perspective for developing strategies to protect IP portfolios in evolving contexts.

As the trade negotiations draw to a close, how will structural issues such as IP be addressed? What may be the low hanging fruit? Will China’s recent IP improvements and legislative reforms have durable impact? And what does an emerging "fortress China" mean for your business?

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