Recent Progress and Persistent Challenges in IP in the Indo-Pacific Region: An Update from the IP Commission

March 29, 2021 • Webinar

Starts: 2:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 4:30 PM (EDT)

The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property (IP Commission) was launched in 2012 by the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) to track the scale and complexities of intellectual property (IP) theft, the driving forces behind it, and its consequences for the United States. Since its groundbreaking initial report in 2013, the IP Commission has met periodically to issue updates and new recommendations. Most recently, this included a memo to the Biden administration highlighting priority actions that should be immediately implemented to better safeguard U.S. IP and promote innovation in the United States.

This event will provide an update on the most pressing IP issues facing the United States today. Panelists will evaluate developments in the regulatory environment, the current state of IP and trade-secret theft, and key IP challenges in the Indo-Pacific region. Participants will also discuss and recommend potential policy actions to improve U.S. IP protections, better safeguard U.S. interests, and deter foreign companies from future theft of U.S. IP.
