By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) is organizing and presenting a series of “China IP Roadshows” throughout the United States. The event is intended to help U.S. businesses and inventors understand how to obtain and enforce intellectual property (IP) rights in China. The next scheduled stops are Detroit (July 10) and Grand Rapids, Michigan (July 12). The program is free and open to all, but space is limited.

USPTO China IP Road Show Registration: Detroit & Grand Rapids.

The presentations include general information about China’s IP system, brand protection, anti-counterfeiting measures and enforcing IP rights in the United States, along with issues of concern to the auto industry. The PTO has tentative plans to hold the program later this year in the following cities:

  • Salt Lake City and Denver: Early October.
  • Indianapolis and Chicago: Mid-October.
  • Seattle, Portland and San Francisco: Mid-November.
