About this product:
The allure of China is undeniable. Its rising incomes, growing middle
class and fast-growing vehicle market all frequently make the news in
the United States. Not all the news out of China is positive, however.
Almost weekly, there are stories about counterfeit goods with ties to
China. Counterfeit goods cost companies in the United States billions
of dollars a year. There is no denying that intellectual property
rights (IPR) protection is a problem for companies doing business in
China, be it sourcing products there or selling in the market. But that
doesn’t mean you should stay away from doing business in China.
SEMA-member companies that have done business in China have some advice
for fellow SEMA members eyeing the China market with anticipation but
also trepidation: Your products will almost certainly be copied, so
take steps to protect yourself.
