The US has levied tariffs on Chinese imports, citing intellectual property violations. Join Amy B. Goldsmith, Co-Chair of the Intellectual Property Practice at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin LLP, as she explains intellectual property protection and enforcement in China, and the reasons for the current IP controversy. First, Ms. Goldsmith will discuss China’s membership in certain international IP treaties and conventions and the obligations of member states pursuant thereto. Next, patents, trademarks, and copyrights will be examined through the Chinese lens, including searching, filing, and maintaining any granted rights and the value of customs recordals. Third, Ms. Goldsmith will review how one deals with infringement in China of patents, trademarks and copyrights. Ms. Goldsmith will sum up by discussing tech transfer issues and why China is on the US priority watch list for intellectual property violations.

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. If knock-offs are all over social media platforms, Amy will help you take them down.
