Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Address China’s membership in intellectual property treaties and conventions
  2. Identify how and when to file for patent, trademark, and copyright protection, and recordation with the Chinese Customs authorities
  3. Review enforcement mechanisms in China, including administrative and court proceedings
  4. Discuss best practices regarding tech transfer
  5. Delve into China’s presence on the US watch list and the tariffs
