Be Smart Workshop: Doing Business in Asia: the importance of Intellectual Property protection and enforcement

View Calendar

Both South-East Asia and China are growth markets which provide ample opportunities for Hungarian businesses. Yet, the process of entering and/or remaining in foreign markets requires patience, perseverance and the right preparation, such as finding a trustworthy business partner and bridging cultural gaps. One of the elements that is often neglected, especially amongst SMEs is protection of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) (e.g. trademarks, patents, copyrights, trade secrets, industrial designs). These rights are your core business asset, and need to be protected not only within the confines of Hungary or the EU, but especially when entering foreign markets where your products might be at risk of being copied. A strong IP strategy and portfolio is a key to attracting investors, and a key to success.

In this event, China IPR SME Helpdesk expert Michal Klaczynski will introduce you to how to best prepare in terms of IPR when going to China and South-East Asia.

The following themes will be discussed:

  • Different types of IP (copyright, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, designs)
  • IP Regime in China and South-East Asia
  • Prevention and enforcement mechanisms
  • Practical do’s and don’t’s with regards to IP
  • Case Studies

Our expert could also be available for one-on-one consultations after the presentation.

The trainer will be Michal Klaczynski
