Intellectual property law in China is undergoing rapid change, with profound implications for the world. Following our successful 2020 launch of a multi-part series on Chinese intellectual property law, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology will present its second series of webinars, beginning October 6. The focus of this year’s series is on IP enforcement.

Leading experts from China and the U.S. will cover a range of topics, including China’s new specialized courts, venue and regional differences, use of empirical data, online platform liability, abusive trademark registrations, pharmaceutical IP, trade secret law, and US / European litigation involving Chinese rightsholders. Judges from Germany, the UK and the United States will be speaking. Other notable speakers include two former directors of the USPTO, as well as several current and former senior government officials, professors and prominent attorneys and experts.
