The featured speaker for this webcast is Dr. Jerry L. Hefner, Partner, at Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear LLP. Hefner will discuss crucial information surrounding protecting your company's IP in China.

China has recently made significant advancements in providing applicants with cost effective means for both securing and enforcing IP rights.

During this webcast, Hefner will provide valuable information regarding the types of IP protection that the Chinese system has to offer, cost effective approaches that non-Chinese entities can employ to reduce the likelihood of unauthorized exploitation of their technologies in China, how to control infringing activities through enforcement actions, and realistic expectations for enforcement outcomes in China.

"If you're even thinking about bringing your design to China, this webinar is a can't miss event," stated Rich Nass, Director of Content at UBM Canon and moderator for the webcast. "While the potential of producing a medical device in China comes with obvious benefits, it also has challenges that are just as obvious. During this webcast, we will cover vital information and explain realistic ways to secure and enforce your company's IP in China. Plus, there will be a live Q&A with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have."

The webcast will take place on Tuesday, December 6 at 1:00 p.m. CT (2:00 p.m. ET).  There is a minimal registration fee to attend.  The event will also be available archived for six months on the MD+DI website and in the Qmed webcast archive
