Client just sent me a link to a United States Government internet “brochure” on “Protecting Your Intellectual Property Rights in China” [link no longer exists] along with a note saying “this is what you are always saying.” It is what I am always saying, and though this information appears to be about ten years old, near as I can tell, all or virtually all of it is still current and still on point. It provides a very clear, blissfully short overview of China’s intellectual property laws and then provides an excellent list of what it calls “major players” in China intellectual property. For anyone starting out in China and confronting the issue of how to protect your intellectual property (IP) there, I highly recommend this site.
We will be discussing the practical aspects of Chinese law and how it impacts business there. We will be telling you what works and what does not and what you as a businessperson can do to use the law to your advantage. Our aim is to assist businesses already in China or planning to go into China, not to break new ground in legal theory or policy. More
