As the knowledge-based economy has become more prevalent in recent years, intellectual property protection is more crucial than ever. Although intellectual property (IP) is more commonly thought of as patents, trademark, and copyright, other intangible assets, such as trade secrets, human capital, and brands that hold immense value as well. In the last century, we have seen an astounding series of disruptive technology, from the telephone to the computer to the cloud computing. We’re now on the search for the new frontiers. Whereas the U.S. was leading previously in new technology like the electric vehicles or artificial intelligence, China is poised to take over in the next few years, if not already so. Then there are the exciting developments in next-generation drugs, fighting everything from cancer to superbugs, and medical treatments, providing advancements in new organ transplants to gene editing. There is innovation happening in every sector and every instance. Protecting your intangible assets and honing your intellectual capital must be an integral part of your organization’s business strategies to be competitive. Learn how you should leverage your IP in this knowledge-based economy, the effective strategic and operational actions to take to secure your IP and to minimize the risk of litigation, and the changing IP landscape. In this 10th anniversary of our annual IP seminar, please join us as we explore what is to come in the next century of innovation.

This event is co-organised by CUHK Faculty of Law, United States-China Intellectual Property Institute (USCIPI) and Asia Innovation and IP Society (AIIPS). We are pleased to have renowned experts share their insights and experiences in the conference. Attendance is free of charge but is reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.
