The ability to protect intellectual property in China is often misunderstood. However, today patents can be obtained in China, and Chinese patents obtained by US companies can be fairly enforced.

Learn how the Chinese IP system works directly from a Beijing-based Chinese IP attorney and discover how to protect your IP when doing business in China to create the greatest value for your company.

Nyemaster Goode, in cooperation with the Iowa State University Research Park and the Startup Factory, is proud to present a webinar with Stephen Yang, the managing partner and patent attorney with the Chinese law firm IP March. Stephen will explore the latest trends in IP protection in China. The session will be hosted by Todd Van Thomme, shareholder and patent attorney at Nyemaster Goode.
