Trends in Intellectual Property Protection and Antitrust Enforcement in China

San Francisco, California
03 November 2010
Hosted By: NERA Economic Consulting

As China continues to grow in importance in the global economy, the creation and protection of intellectual property and the enforcement of its competition laws have received considerable international attention. Some US companies are concerned that their intellectual property is inadequately protected in China. Others may be unsure about whether a proposed investment or marketing program will face antitrust scrutiny. To address these issues, NERA hosted this seminar in San Francisco on 3 November 2010. Catherine Sun, Managing Partner of the Shanghai office of Foley & Lardner, led a discussion of the current trends in protection of IP in China. She was joined by NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Alan Cox, who also discussed IP litigation and damages in China, including updates to his paper "Intellectual Property Rights Protection in China: Trends in Litigation and Economic Damages."
