Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Issues in China brought to you by HiBEAM and UH Cancer Center ($27.37)

August 1st 3:00pm

Foreign IP owners and businesses are often wary of doing business in/with China because of the risk of IP piracy and loss of technology and trade secrets.  This fear has to be properly balanced against the golden opportunities that are open to all who venture into the Chinese marketplace.  While the protection of IPR in China has shown modest improvements in recent years, the vast majority of companies— 98 percent—still say IPR enforcement is a major concern for them.
