How to get your Intellectual Property Protected in China

Sheffield China Business Seminars 2017 - 2018

Seminar Four

One of the biggest concerns from British businesses trading with China is the protection of their intellectual property rights. Some argue that it is inevitable to be copied if you are successful in the Chinese market, whilst others go through extreme to protect their IP by avoiding the market altogether. In this seminar, we invited experts in the fields to discuss with ins and outs of IP protection and Innovation in China.
