• Editor’s Note A few words from Managing Editor Elizabeth Engdahl about the latest issue of IP.
FEATURES ♦ • You Can Protect IP in China Everybody says that China is the current big thing in world markets. Everybody also says that you can’t protect your intellectual property over there. For the globally minded company, the trick is to know when to listen to everybody and when not to. You certainly can protect IP assets in China — if you check out your local partners, learn the culture and the law, take reasonable precautions, and (ahem) hire the right legal advisers. by Catherine Y. Sun • Torn Between Two Laws No IP attorney can serve two masters. But litigation today may force you to try. Plan ahead so that you won’t get trapped between foreign privacy laws forbidding the release of data and an American judge ordering discovery. by David J. Kessler • Are You Injured Now? Last year, the Supreme Court shook up old ideas about injunctions in the patent context. Lower courts have been busy expanding that ruling to all intellectual property. But does it make sense for trademarks? by Stephen W. Feingold • A Word to Uncle Sam The friendly reminder to the foreign party didn’t work. The lawsuit there is dragging on. And local officials aren’t being helpful. When the usual means of protecting your intellectual assets don’t work overseas, consider asking for help from U.S. trade policy-makers. by Jon E. Huenemann and James B. Altman
IN THE NEWS ♦ • A Picture-Perfect Patent What keeps competitors from stealing the iPod’s sleek design? Legal Times talks with patent attorney Robert Katz about the IP rights that shield innovative ornamentation of shoes, cell phones, computers, and a host of other products. • We Can Drag It Out If We Want, Too Alleged infringers have come to see the value of the inter partes process, especially when they’re knee-deep in litigation. by Jessie Seyfer • The Kid Gloves Are Coming Off A pending copyright bill is pitting the purveyors of high fashion against the merchants of mass apparel. by Kellie Schmitt
