GIPC Highlights China IP Issues to Over One Billion Chinese TV Viewers

CCTV, China’s state-run television network broadcast to more than one billion homes, highlighted the U.S. Chamber’s U.S.-China IP Cooperation Dialogue in a recent segment that coincided with a new round of Dialogue discussions held in Shenzhen, China. The U.S.-China IP Cooperation Dialogue is a collaboration between Renmin University’s China Intellectual Property Academy and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and features two groups of IP experts – one from the U.S. and one from China – that engage in detailed discussions on the most complex and challenging IP issues facing China.

The segment featured two members of the Dialogue: U.S. Chair David Kappos, former Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and one of the world’s foremost leaders in the field of intellectual property, and Gao Lulin, former Commissioner of China’s patent office and newest member of the Dialogue team.

Kappos and Gao discussed the current state of China’s IP environment highlighting key concerns of the business community in China, and the importance of making improvements to encourage further innovation.
