China & Intellectual Property
Another interesting event tomorrow to which you cannot go because it, like the Kauffman affair, is full up – the Broadband Breakfast Club’s session on China and Intellectual Property, featuring Fuli Chen, IPR Attache for the Embassy of China and former Director of the International Law and IPR divisions at the Department of Treaty and Law at the Ministry of Commerce.
(However, this post is not completely an exercise in futility because Broadband Breakfast routinely makes webcasts of its events available quickly, so this one should be up before the end of the week.)
He will be introduced by Rep John Conyers (D-MI), and followed by a discussion among a panel of experts on international IP issues.
Long a manufacturing powerhouse, China has only recently emerged as a competitor in the realm of ideas and intellectual property. Intellectual Property Breakfast Club panelists will discuss how China is presently handling copyrights, patents, and trademarks through words and deeds, and then move into China’s plans for the future. How does China envision engaging and competing with international companies and governments on IP issues? What implications will China’s projected IP laws, policies and actions have on other countries’ abilities to do business in the Chinese marketplace? On China doing business in other countries?
The session is from 8:00 to 10:00 – register for the waiting list here.
