The Nashville Bar Association is pleased to host the China Intellectual Property (IP) Road Show, with the participation of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Office of Policy and International Affairs and the USPTO Texas Regional Office.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of Principal Intellectual Property Laws in China   Enforcing Your Intellectual Property Rights in China
