Strategies and Resources for Protecting IP in China with the USPTO

Please join the US-China Business Council (USCBC) for a conversation on intellectual property rights protection in China with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) China team. The USPTO China team in Washington, DC, has recently gained two China IP experts. Mike Mangelson has returned to DC after several years in Shanghai where he served as IP Attaché at the US Department of Commerce. Mangelson will be able to share insights from his experience advocating US IP interests and assisting US businesses in China. Michael Diehl also recently joined USPTO’s China team, bringing extensive experience working on trade related innovation and intellectual property issues at the US Trade Representative and International Trade Commission. The next US IP Attaché in Guangzhou, Conrad Wong, will also join the session.  

In addition to providing an update on the full spectrum of IP issues—from bad faith trademark flings, utility model patents, to pharmaceutical patents and plant variety protections—USPTO would also welcome the opportunity to hear from USCBC members on priority issues of concern. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with USPTO and help inform their outreach efforts in support of US companies on the ground in China.

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