Foley invites you to participate in our Eye on China Roundtable Series program, Patent Enforcement in China: Sharing the Real Story. We are looking for companies and firms with first-hand experience acquiring and enforcing utility models and design patents as well as familiarity with enforcing invention patents to share with us the specific challenges you face using the administrative and civil judicial enforcement system in China.
The discussion will be moderated by knowledgeable IP attorneys from various private and public sectors, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Several topics will be addressed, including:
- Acquiring utility model/design patents
- Judicial impartiality and transparency
- Evidence collection and preservation
- Damages and injunctions
- Enforceability of court orders
- Administrative patent enforcement
