Beasley Discusses International IP Developments in CBLJ

May 09, 2017

O’Melveny counsel Tony Beasley was quoted in the May 9, 2017 issue of China Business Law Journal. In the article, “Trendsetter,” he explores international developments in intellectual property expected to have a significant impact on foreign investors.

Beasley noted that in 2016 the International Trade Commission (ITC) paid more attention to IP and business issues outside of patent infringement.

“Most commonly, the ITC investigates whether imported articles are infringing patents and harming a domestic industry as a result, but recently it has paid more attention to complaints regarding other types of alleged IP theft, such as, for example, trade secrets and trademarks,” he said.

Based in Los Angeles, Beasley focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation and has experience in many areas of technology, including semiconductors, graphic processing, memory, consumer electronics, medical devices, avionics, financial trading systems, and oil and gas drilling systems.
