Dr. Lulin Gao: "US companies should feel comfortable filing patent litigation against Chinese companies in China"
On Monday, June 19 at IPBC Global in Ottawa, the Founding Commissioner of SIPO stated that US companies can feel comfortable filing patent cases against Chinese companies in China. This is a game-changer, and shows just how far China has come.
Full disclosure: Dr. Gao is the Founder and Chairman of my firm, Beijing East IP.
I invite you to take a look at my new article in IAM Magazine on "How to Win a Patent Case in China as a Plaintiff".
Below is a general outline of the content:
I just arrived in Ottawa for IPBC Global. Dr. Lulin Gao, our firm's Chairman and the father of the Chinese patent system, is also here along with my colleague Austin Chang. Dragon Wang, a VP and one of our top patent litigators arrives Friday night.
I would like to invite anyone interested in learning more about intellectual property, patents, and patent litigation in China to visit us. If anyone is also early (the conference officially starts on Sunday) please email (Erick.Robinson@BeijingEastIP.com) or call/text (+1 713 498 6047).
We will be in Ottawa through Wednesday, June 21. Please come by and let's chat!
