Winning the Battle of “WANGLAOJI” Trademark is just the Beginning!

We’re glad to announce that Guangzhou Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited (GPHL) will join CIPF 2012 and deliver a speech lasting 20 minutes followed by a panel discussion tapping into the case from various aspects such as how to evaluate a famous trademark, effectively managing a famous trademark, maximizing the value of a famous trademark, tips for making trademark license agreement, etc.

 Inaugural China Intellectual Property Focus Awards!

The inaugural China Intellectual Property Focus Awards is designed to identify and reward those companies who have demonstrated an unparalleled ability to succeed and have continually set standards of excellence. Under the guidance of CIPS, we will set six prizes, aiming to recognize and honor the excellent efforts and accomplishments of IP law firms, IP consultancy providers as well as local best contributors in IPR sector.

Event Background

2012 is the fourth year since the release of the "National Intellectual Property Strategy Outline.” It has become essential to vigorously promote intellectual property strategies against the backdrop of economic globalization.
As the importance of the knowledge economy increases and economic globalization advances, intellectual property has become a key element in international competition. In recent years, Chinese enterprises expanding overseas have encountered an increasing number of IP disputes, which not only discourage local companies from competing in international markets, but also have negative effects on bilateral and multilateral trade relations.
Especially in the American market, Chinese enterprises have gotten involved in a lot of unfair IP prosecutions and investigations pertinent to Section 337. Lacking knowledge of Section 337 and familiarity of U.S jurisdiction principles makes Chinese companies more apt to give up protecting their rights.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of international companies have encountered IP litigation, especially in the trademark sector. Protecting the MNCs’ intellectual property and establishing comprehensive IP strategies and law systems have become a common concern for all parties.
Under the guidance of the Shanghai Academy of Social Science, we’re glad to launch our China Intellectual Property Focus 2012 this September 20-21 in Shanghai, China. You are invited to join the discussion with senior executives and experts from the State of Intellectual Property Office, The Supreme Court, as well as many in-house IP counsels.

Unique One-on-One meetings onsite!
To optimize your time and get higher ROI from CIPF 2012, we will arrange One-on-One business meetings onsite for our VIP speakers, sponsors and delegates, which will enable you be more efficient to networking with about 150 attendees onsite.
