If you are doing business in China or are thinking of doing business in China and have a business that relies on Intellectual Property, the United States Patent and Trademark Office just announced that it is sponsoring a two-day, free, program on “China’s Impact on Intellectual Property: Protecting Your Intellectual Property in China and the Global Marketplace.” While this is short notice — the Program will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, April 6-7, 2011 at USPTO Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia — and the program details are available, USPTO programs are usually excellent. The USPTO indicates this program will feature IP specialists from the U.S. Government along with experts from the American and Chinese private sectors. Presentations will offer guidance on protecting and enforcing trademarks and patents in China and global intellectual property strategy for small businesses, including case studies illustrating principles in practice, and real world stories and practical tips from companies on the front line of IP rights protection and enforcement in China. Seating is limited. Registration closes April 5th.
