As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, protecting intellectual property becomes more important than ever before. Intellectual property conferences provide an opportunity for professionals in this field to learn from experts, share their knowledge and experiences, and network.
This is not what we wanted, but something we should be prepared for. Trademark protection is going to be more expensive in the USA in 2024.
China is a nightmare for intellectual property specialists and attorneys. Why? Because Chinese Trademark Law is not “first to use” as in the US and Canada, but “first to file”. Thus, anyone who files your trademark in China before you has more rights to use it, no matter how popular it is in your country.
