U.S. Patent Seminar, Midea Holding Co Ltd, Guangdong, China


Guangdong, China, 20 Sep 2006- As Chinese companies are increasingly pushing their own domestically designed products into the global market place, a strong interest in the particulars of U.S. and international patent laws has developed. Midea Holding Co Ltd, one of China’s largest home appliance manufacturers (expected 2006 sales volume of $6 billion) has set its sights on U.S. shores. Recognizing the potential complications involved with introducing new products abroad, the intellectual property department at Midea sought an all-day forum with Dovas Law, P.C., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Advance China IP, Beijing, China, to allow its in-house counsel and engineering staff the opportunity to interactively address U.S. and international patent procedures.

Dimitri Dovas of Dovas Law provided instruction on the subjects of U.S. and international patent prosecution, including costs and strategies. Also discussed were the conditions for patent infringement and the litigation process. Shelly Zheng of Advance China IP helped to provide insight into differences between Chinese and U.S. patent law from both a technical and cultural perspective.

As recognized by the management at Midea, evaluating benefits and pitfalls from an intellectual property perspective is imperative when considering the pursuit of sales in the U.S. or any foreign market. Law firms such as Dovas Law and Advance China IP recognize that companies with international interests have special needs, and therefore, they endeavor to accommodate such companies with intellectual property education and tailored solutions.
