USPTO Webinar: Understanding Utility Model Patents in China

The utility model patent (UMP) is a category of patent granted in China. It is meant to protect incremental inventions, demands a comparatively lower level of inventive step than those of invention patents, and generally takes less time from filing to grant. Compared to many foreign companies, however, U.S. companies do not often file UMPs in China.
For this two-hour webinar, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Office of Policy and International Affairs has brought together a group of five experienced private practitioners and in-house counsel to offer their expertise and practical insights on UMPs and how U.S. companies can best utilize them when doing business in China.
