About this talk

China has become a critical jurisdiction for patents in recent years, but many international companies are surprised by the different requirements for patent applications in China from the US and elsewhere. This webinar will compare the two systems, focussing particularly on inventiveness, where the differences are significant and can trip up international companies. Chinese law requires new inventions to possess prominent substantive features and indicate notable progress over the prior art, but the steps used to get to those thresholds have distinct differences from US analyses of obviousness. Join us to learn more about these distinctions, and how you can ensure your patent applications can be successful in both the US and China.
