TOPIC:  Amended PRC Trademark Law:  What Now?

Changes to China’s Trademark Law entered into effect on May 1, 2014, which offer a range of new tools for protecting trademarks.  The changes of most importance relate to civil and administrative enforcement as well as protection against bad faith registrations at the register.   The speakers will provide an overview of these changes and strategies for testing their utility in practice.
