“Why bother?” is the typical response when speaking about IP protection in China - especially with respect to the manufacture of products. However, there are practical legal and business reasons to protect patents, trademarks and copyrights in China of which practitioners should be aware.
Join Tarter Krinsky partner Amy Goldsmith as she reviews the current state of the law from registration to enforcement by foreign rights holders.
I. Discuss the three classifications of patent protection and the impact of Chinese law on the nature and enforcement of patents
II. Grasp enforcement and importance of preventive measures
III. Review U.S. Customs Seizures of 2013
Successful, profitable businesses share certain characteristics: immediately recognizable brands, desirable products or services, and a strategic plan which minimizes legal risks. As co-chair of the Intellectual Property Group at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Amy B. Goldsmith partners with clients to provide practical legal advice and connections to grow their businesses. A strategic advisor, she guides clients in all stages of their development from idea conception and protection, to funding, manufacturing and enforcement.
She will advise you whether your trademark is available in the United States and globally, if patents should be a part of your strategy, and if your design team’s new product shares too many features of the competition’s copyrighted bestseller. She will design contracts that make sense. Amy will also guide you through the clearance process, whether the subject matter is books, movies or live action. If a dispute is on the horizon, she will be by your side until a fair resolution is reached.
Amy protects the global interests of national and international clients in a wide variety of industries, including fashion, cosmetics, pet products, publishing, medical devices, exercise equipment, web-based business applications and telecommunications platforms, and consumer and designer goods.
She is a Vice President of the New York Women's Bar Association. She is also a member of the American Bar Association and the International Trademark Association (INTA) and is on the Board of Directors of Savvy Ladies, a non-profit whose mission is to educate women to be financially savvy.

would like to see more lectures on China TM practice, commercial IP aspects and enforcement from experience on the ground.
Very good overview as long as it's still valid. Program dates from 2014 and China trade issues and practices change rapidly.
Great program with lots of substantive law and good practical advice.
Good overview of realities of IP protection in China.
This speaker knows exactly what she is advocating and shows her actual practice in this ever changing areas. I hope she develops more video presentations.
