Why Should You Attend:

If your company exports or sells its product or services in foreign markets, the risk of loss from intellectual property theft is far greater. Unlike the United States, some foreign nations do not have laws to protect intellectual property. Some countries have laws that make it easy to capture your intellectual property. Other nations feel the counterfeit market is essential to its local economy and therefore, do not always cooperate with law enforcement. The software, entertainment, consumer electronics, apparel, and pharmaceutical industries are particularly vulnerable. IP theft costs more than loss in sales.

This webinar will help attendees understand the related risks in protecting intellectual property overseas and how to overcome them with efficient strategies.
