About the Webinar

Clients are often keen to take their business to China. But how do you best protect their IP? China may be one of the largest markets in the world, but it’s also the home of counterfeiting. This session navigates what you need to do to ensure that clients can manufacture or expand their business into China, whilst maximising their IP protection. It covers:

  • Selecting a Mandarin or Cantonese name for your product
  • Applying to register your trade marks, designs and patents in China as quickly as possible:
    • understanding the registration process
    • first to register v first to use
    • what if someone else already owns your trade mark?
  • Manufacturing in China – key considerations:
    • signing an NDA prior to entering negotiations
    • what should your manufacturing agreement look like?
  • Enforcement issues – what if your IP rights are being infringed in China?
  • Practical case studies
