Protecting Your Intellectual Property Internationally

Fred Rocafort is dedicated to helping businesses from around the world and across industries protect their brands.

GlobalAutoIndustry.com’s latest Audio Interview “Why and How to Protect your Intellectual Property Internationally” https://globalautoindustry.com/why-and-how-to-protect-your-intellectual-property-internationally/ features Fred Rocafort, who leads Harris Bricken’s intellectual property practice and is the coordinator of the firm’s international team. He is dedicated to helping businesses from around the world and across industries protect their brands as they grow.

Prior to joining Harris Bricken, Rocafort worked in China for more than a decade, in both government and private sector roles. In addition to his IP work, he advises clients doing business overseas on corporate matters, leveraging his proficiency in Spanish and Chinese.

In the 16-minute Audio Interview, Rocafort discusses the following questions:

  • Why is it important to protect your intellectual property internationally?
  • For a company that is just beginning to look at protecting its intellectual property internationally, what are the first steps it should take?
  • What are some common challenges businesses face when protecting their intellectual property internationally?
  • To what extent, if any, can intellectual property that has been registered in the U.S. help with international protection?

Many of Rocafort’s clients operate in spaces that constitute new frontiers for IP law, such as cannabis, psychedelics, and Web3. Prior to joining Harris Bricken, he worked in China for more than a decade, in both government and private sector roles. He is a regular commentator on brand protection matters and serves as an expert witness on IP-related cases.

In addition to his IP work, Rocafort advises clients doing business overseas on corporate matters, leveraging his proficiency in Spanish and Chinese. On any given day, he guides clients as they set up an S. de R.L. in Mexico, explore opportunities in Thailand’s budding cannabis market, vet potential business partners in Brazil, negotiate manufacturing agreements with suppliers in Colombia, and take down infringing listings from e-commerce sites in China.
