Getting your international contract in order, in this case with China

As I have just come across a case where the importance of seals for signatures in China became an issue, I found a very to the point informative article on the subject, from Deshlaw in the US. Follow the link below for more.

Infringements in a new world order

The EUCJ decision in this case, where a company was originally denied access to information about the original infringement of its goods, marks a global need to find perpetrators and underlines the global aspect of copyright today.

Here a link to the article from William Fry on  lexology.com
