Come and join me this week on February 17 at noon EST for a discussion hosted by the Federalist Society on how the Biden Administration will handle China’s IP practices. I will be joined by Prof. Justin Hughes from Loyola Law School, who was also a former colleague of mine at the USPTO.
If your focus is on patents, you may want to join another webinar consisting of myself, Prof. Vivienne Bath from the University of Sydney, He Jing from the Genlaw Firm and moderated by Urška Petrovčič of the Hudson Institute. The program will be held on February 18 at 6:00 PM EST. The topic is “Patent Litigation in China: Navigating a Changing Environment.”
These discussions will contrast with a program next week on February 22 at 7 PM EST at Duke University on China’s emerging technology edge and IP, hosted by my old friend, Prof. Denis Simon, a leading scholar of China’s technology policies.
On February 25, 2020, I will be speaking at a webinar hosted by the University of California at San Diego, on “Weaponization of Intellectual Property Against China.” This program will look back at how the Trump Administration handled IP and tech issues with China and whether the Biden Administration should continue those policies.
Are you an optimist or pessimist on US IP relations with China? Do you prefer to view the issues through a focus on overall legal developments in China, trade relations with the United States and other countries, or China’s own domestic drive to innovate? Each of these discussions promises to have a different focus.
