Information Industry in
NFAIS is organizing a one-day seminar - The Information Industry in
The main speaker will be Dr. James Chan, President, Asia Marketing and Management. Born in China, Dr. Chan started his independent consulting practice in 1983 after having served as China Area Manager and International Promotion Manager for Academic Press, Inc. Based upon his extensive knowledge and first-hand experience in dealing with the information market in China, he will provide details and practical advice on a range of topics – from current trends in the Chinese Information Industry, its challenges and opportunities, requirements for success, fighting piracy and more. In addition, Dr. Chan will address areas of interest and specific questions that were submitted to him earlier this year (Click here to see the list). All registrants will receive a written copy of Dr. Chan's answers prior to the seminar in order to provide fuel for even more questions during the session. Dr. Chan was rated as the top speaker by attendees of the 2008 NFAIS Annual Conference, so this is an opportunity you will not want to miss!
Our second speaker will be Jennifer Young, an International Trade Specialist from the Office of Intellectual Property (IP) at the U.S. Department of Commerce. Recently returned from a three-month stay at the U. S. Embassy in Beijing, China where she worked on a range of IP protection and enforcement concerns, Ms. Young will provide attendees with practical advice on the protection of intellectual property in China and an overview of the resources available to content providers for IP protection and enforcement. She regularly leads webinars on the topic for her U.S. Government colleagues and will be an invaluable resource for your IP questions.
