Posted by J Matthew Buchanan at June 13, 2006 03:46 PM

The United States Patent and Trademark Office is sponsoring a two-day, free program on "China's Impact on Intellectual Property: Protecting Your Intellectual Property in China and the Global Marketplace.” The two day event will be held on July 12-13 at the Grand Hyatt Seattle.

Topics to be covered at the conference include China’s laws and regulations that may affect how a business protects and enforces its intellectual property, how best to protect business assets to avoid intellectual property problems in the first place, how to recognize when an intellectual property asset has been infringed, what to do if infringement occurs, and what the U.S. government is doing to improve the intellectual property protection and enforcement environment in China.

Companies of any size, from those contemplating entering the China market to those with an established presence in the country should be particularly interested in attending the conference. In addition,those who simply want to know more about protecting themselves against IP theft from abroad will also find the sessions very helpful.

This program is part of the USPTO’s continuing commitment to increase public awareness of intellectual property rights and the enforcement of these rights in the global marketplace.

The conference is free, but seating is limited.  Register now.
