In just half a decade, China has reshaped its IP framework to facilitate and safeguard legitimate technology transfers. The Foreign Investment Law clearly bans forced technology transfers. Nevertheless, uncertainties persist. SMEs remain concerned about how to structure technology transfers when dealing with Chinese partners. During this training seminar the China IP SME Helpdesk will provide an overview of the newest technology transfer conditions as well as discuss the role of various contracts in protecting IP.
