China offers invaluable business and growth opportunities and has become an important market for many US companies. However, concerns about intellectual property (IP) protection remain high (see Box 1 for a case study). This webinar will explore common IP concerns around trade- and contract-related issues. You will leave the session with tips and strategies to effectively protect your Pharma products in China.
This is a 60-minute moderator-led panel in Q&A format to explore and provide solutions to the following concerns:
Concern 1: China IP laws expressly favor domestic interests
Concern 2: Chinese companies do not respect IP
Concern 3: Chinese laws does not govern theft of third party IP
Concern 4: Trade-secret thefts are common in China
Concern 5: Chinese companies bear no liability in case IP or confidentiality is breached
Concern 6: Enforcing intellectual property rights (IPR) is very difficult in China
Concern 7: Foreign companies cannot control the future of invention discovered in China
Concern 8: Dispute resolution in China-which law to govern? US or China?
