Safeguard Your IP in China Seminar 11.07.2007 11:00pm How can companies combat the theft of their intellectual property when doing business in China?

Manufacturing products or franchising your operations in China can be a strategically advantageous business decision. However, China's reputation as a problem area for foreign intellectual property is well-known. U.S. firms have lost billions of dollars from Chinese piracy and counterfeit products. Trademark infringements have damaged the value of U.S. brands.

Please join Williams Mullen Maupin Taylor, in association with Hughes Pittman & Gupton, for a luncheon roundtable program where we will share the best practices for protecting your intellectual property in China.

Discussions will include:
• An overview of China's intellectual property rights regime
• How to conduct an audit of your intellectual property assets
• How to identify and prevent potential leaks
• How to minimize your exposure to intellectual property infringement

RSVP by November 5 to Toni Colon at 919.981.4092 or tcolon@williamsmullen.com.
