Following up on the discussions and engagement established during the EU-China online workshops that took place in November, IP Key China in cooperation with CAASA (the China Anti-infringement and Anti-counterfeiting Innovation Strategic Alliance) will organise an offline seminar on IPR protection online and innovation. The seminar will expand on the topics discussed during the webinars. Representatives from government, enforcement agencies, the IP legal profession, service providers, academia, the EU and Chinese industry, IPR owners, e-commerce marketplaces and social media platforms are anticipated to attend the event.
EU-China cooperation in this sector has been consistently active in recent years. IP Key China, as the instrument for partnership on IP cooperation between the EU and China, has had a longstanding collaboration with its key counterpart in China – CAASA. It resulted in the successful EU-China conference on IPR Protection Online and Innovation, which took place in Xiamen (Fujian, China) in 2018 and in Haikou (Hainan, China) in 2019.
