With piracy of software and intellectual property rights becoming increasingly problematic, the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, has developed a training programme on innovation and intellectual property rights.
About 20 judges, policymakers and enterprise executives from China have joined the China Innovation and Intellectual Property Rights Leadership programme, which will, among other topics, look at intellectual property case studies such as the Beijing Olympics.
Following the training, participants will gain first-hand experience as interns at high-technology companies, IP management companies, law firms and US courts.
The programme takes advantage of Berkeley’s collaborative, interdisciplinary approach, with faculty from the School of Information, the School of Law and Boalt’s Berkeley Center for Law and Technology joining Haas professors.
Plans for the programme include workshops and field studies for Chinese officials in China and the US.
