For many businesses, it makes commercial sense to manufacture your product overseas. But protection of IP in countries such as China, Bangladesh and India is a big concern for many clients, and understandably so. Stories abound of products being copied, and of factories making and selling a client’s product behind their back. If your clients are manufacturing their products overseas, it is vital that your clients take adequate steps to protect their IP rights.
This presentation will cover:
- Choosing the right manufacturer
- Protecting yourself contractually – emails and a handshake are not enough
- How to obtain copyright and design protections overseas, with a focus on China
- How to obtain a Chinese trade mark registration overseas
- The importance of choosing the right foreign name
- How to police the market once your IP is out there
This webinar is suitable for: Lawyers advising businesses of all sizes, in-house counsel
