In an era of globalized production--trade secrets, copyrights, and patents often lay exposed to unscrupulous partners. The crucial question is how to develop and sustain productive relationships with suppliers while ensuring protections throughout a product’s lifecycle.  Safeguarding IP in the supply chain is about more than preventing losses and decreasing compliance risks; it gets to the heart of achieving the fierce but fair competition and widespread economic development promised by global trade.


In March 2012, The Conference Board partnered with the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade (CREATe), a nonprofit organization committed to driving responsible business practices globally, to launch a Research Working Group on Safeguarding Intellectual Property & Addressing Corruption in the Global Supply Chain. Top-level participants from DuPont, Microsoft, ARAMARK, Emerson, TE Connectivity, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, and others joined forces to examine the latest trends and best practices for mitigating supply-chain challenges caused by corruption and misappropriated IP. This collaborative effort resulted in a comprehensive research report, which will be released in December 2012.

Please join us in this webcast as we will discuss the outcomes from this group and examine how the key findings from the report will impact multinational corporations.

Audience: compliance attorneys, IP attorneys, senior international attorneys, supply chain and procurement professionals
