Global supply chains have been greatly impacted by years of trade tensions between the United States and China, and most recently an unexpected pandemic. Products made over extended supply chains tend to be IP-intensive. With the economic recovery underway and an incoming new president in the United States, now is the time look at the IP implications of restructuring disrupted supply chains through licensing terms and asset relocation.

This webinar will begin with a short presentation of the Hinrich Foundation’s report ‘A techno-globalist approach to IP and supply chain disruption’ and continue with a discussion about best practices for protecting IP rights in disrupted supply chains and global networks, and about the impact of competition and government on reshoring or risk mitigation plans.
