SwissCham Shanghai together with FBCS and SwedCham China are delighted to invite you to attend our seminar in cooperation with Luther Law Offices to discuss intellectual property protection for manufacturing companies in China.

Companies large and small in virtually every industry increasingly use and rely on intellectual property. In today's economy, the "intellectual capital" embodied in inventions and creative content can be as important to economic growth as traditional capital, goods and services. Thus, effective IP management has become a major criterion for international enterprises in successfully doing business in the Mainland and globally.

The seminar addresses a range of topics including:

  • IP protection and patent laws
  • Industrial design and copyrights
  • IP infringement

Best practices will be shared during the presentation to help you to navigate the corporate IP landscape to enhance the standard of IP management.

For the panel discussion, the speakers Raymond Kok and Yuemei Zhang will be joined by Sven O. Otten, General Manager of Tuenkers Automation, to discuss the legal issues and experiences from a corporate point of view.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
