Shook, Hardy & Bacon Intellectual Property Attorney Tom Moga has been invited to a June 28, 2011, meeting in Washington, D.C., to discuss developments in innovation and intellectual property policy in China with representatives from the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

The meeting will focus on (i) the current status of U.S. government, academic and private sector efforts, “including recent concluded bilateral innovation dialogues, training programs of antitrust judges, IPR working groups, and how they relate to our knowledge and engagement on China’s innovation strategies”; and (ii) recent and ongoing research, including reports undertaken by the National Bureau of Asian Research and U.S. International Trade Commission.

The discussion will help solidify an agenda and establish a working group for a forthcoming George Washington University program on indigenous innovation and intellectual property in China.
