Combining efforts in the fight against IPR infringement in China! – Göteborg


IPR protection, infringement and lack of strategy are all issues that need to be addressed when conducting business on foreign markets, both for companies already present but also for those entering the new market. PSU China and Thomsen Trampedach has teamed up to assist companies on the Chinese market. The cooperation covers IPR related investigations, combining Thomsen’s expertise in Brand Monitoring/Market Screening and methodology of takedowns from Chinese E-Commerce with PSU’s expertise in gathering evidence of infringement “on the ground” in China.

During this lunch meeting in co-operation with Business Region Göteborg, we will learn about some of the key changes  in terms of legislations around IPR in China (online and offline) recently taken effect. Some successful cases within IPR that has received public attention, the newest trends within IPR will also be showcased (both how these crimes have developed in terms of cause of action but also the changes we see within the business community). Included will also be some case studies from both PSU and Thomsen. 

If you are looking for a clear and efficient IPR strategy in China that actually provides a difference, whether your business is already established in China or if you are expanding to the Chinese market – you should definitely come listen to some valuable “does and don’ts” on May 15.
