If you are near Portland, Oregon, Prof. Eric Priest of the University of Oregon, Chief Judge Rader (ret) and I will be talking at the University of Oregon about our joint efforts with the US Chamber on China IP related matters. The program will be held form 12:00 to 1:30 on May 6th at the University of Oregon White Stag Building, 70 NW Couch Street, Portland, Oregon, RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org. Oregon CLE is pending.
On June 2, 2016 in Beijing, IP Key will be cosponsoring a program on Infringement of Intellectual Property Rights Online. Information is available here.
Another upcoming program on June 8 is in Alexandria, Virginia with the USPTO and George Mason University on licensing. Although not strictly speaking a China-related program, I expect there to be considerable discussion around China’s licensing environment. Amongst the speakers will be Director Lee of the USPTO, Commerce Deputy Secretary Bruce Andrews, FTC Commissioner Ohlhausen, and former USPTO Director David Kappos. I will also be speaking at this program. The conference agenda and a link to registration are available here.
