Business opportunities abound in China, both for TTOs looking for licensees and for university start-ups seeking cost-effective manufacturing options for their products. But BEWARE: Though the opportunities are significant and shouldn’t be ignored, neither should the fact that IP theft in China is still a huge problem — and universities and their start-ups need to protect their valuable IP.

Deals made in China can threaten IP rights not just in China, but in markets around the world. If you’re involved in the huge Chinese market or plan to be, it’s critical you understand China’s IP landscape and know how to manage key IP issues – and avert big problems that can demolish the value of your innovations.

That’s why we’ve created this information-packed webinar to provide you up-to-date legal advice on how to protect your technology and other IP interests from being counterfeited, pirated, or otherwise misappropriated by Chinese companies.
