Pathways for Cooperation and Engagement between the US and China
AmCham China, the European Chamber of Commerce, the United States Information Technology Office (USITO) and the Fordham University School of Law are pleased to invite you to this conference -- the last event in a series of intellectual property (IP) and innovation roundtables. Following a keynote address from Judge Denny Chin, three moderated panels will discuss China's Indigenous Innovation policy, provide insights and updates on China's patent data, explore how the US and China can cooperate in innovation and IP protection, and much more. As with prior programs, this is not a traditional seminar format, but is instead a series of moderated discussions among experts and with the audience. Every speaker is an expert on his/her topic, and many have recent publications and research reports that they will be sharing.
We are pleased to feature the event's keynote speaker, Judge Denny Chin. Judge Chin presided over some well-known cases, including but not limited to the 150-year sentence to financier Bernard L. Madoff for his Ponzi Scheme, and the Google Book settlement case. Judge Chin graduated from Princeton University and received his law degree from Fordham Law School. He is currently the only active Asian-American judge in the federal appeals court system, and as such has been considered by some as the first possible Asian-American candidate for the US Supreme Court.
Come with questions or suggestions for senior US and China officials and leading experts. This conference offers an ideal learning and networking opportunity. Speakers and panelists include:
