The panel will provide you with the following techniques and approaches to manage this threat:
- An appreciation of the alarming rate of increase in IP counterfeiting and associated crimes—and how it hurts the economies not only of industries, but of countries around the world.
- The internal steps your clients or company can take to protect their IP and corporate brands and the external measures needed to enforce their IP rights.
- The ways that the current Chinese trademark law helps counterfeiters, and how the new Chinese trademark law may help your company protect their IP.
