During this panel discussion we hope to talk about many of the standard problems startups face around intellectual property (IP) such as:
• How to prevent others from copying your products in China
• What to do when your product is held up by immigration because they believe your product violates someone else's IP
• Strategies on how to position your IP to improve your company evaluation to help you raise money
