The common perception is China presents a lot more challenges on IP than opportunities. But the amazing growth in tech sectors and content distribution in recent years has started something quite different, not to mention the ongoing policy emphasis on IP and innovation by the Chinese government. With establishment of more specialized IP courts, the Chinese IP judges has begun awarding much higher damages in patent cases. Injunctions are always available. The legal proceeding is shorter and the legal expense is a fraction of what a typical US patent litigation would cost. Rampant online piracy seems to be gradually displaced by monthly subscription model. What does all this mean to US investors and industries? Is China now pro-IP?
In this program, Mr. He Jing will share his insights from both perspectives as a practitioner and a legal policy advocate. Mr. He is a leading practitioner in China for years. He started his legal career in Palo Alto back in 2000 at Fenwick. He is now leading a fast growing China IP practice at AnJie Law Firm in Beijing, handling complex IP litigations and antitrust work. His unique policy consulting work, including those related to Renmin University/US Chamber’s US China IP Cooperation Dialogue in past years, allows him to contribute in multiple dimensions in China.
Mr. He has his undergraduate degrees from Peking University in physics and law. He also received his JD from University of Notre Dame. He is currently on George Washington University Law School IP Advisory Board and has been teaching in Notre Dame’s London Summer Program in 2015 and 2016.
