A focus on China

As international businesses settle into their long term China strategies, intellectual property becomes increasingly important. Download our China Focus for insights onto the increasingly mature but complex Chinese IP system

Both subscribers and non-subscribers download the pdf here or read on the Managing IP website here. This year, our contributors covered a wide range of topics that reflect the sophisticated mechanisms available to rights holders and issues that confront them.

For patent owners, we have articles covering issues such as how to determine novelty-conferring features, a comparison between US and Chinese disclosure requirements and tips on making third-party observations to patent applications.

Brand owners may appreciate reading about how to block counterfeit goods leaving China, how to protect retail spaces and a discussion on the ongoing controversy concerning whether original equipment manufacturing (OEM) in China constitutes use and infringement. And right owners of all types may be interested to read about issues of geographical jurisdiction in China, an increasingly important issue with the popularity of online shopping, how to maximise damage awards and a review of the top 10 IP cases in China in the past year.

These are just some of the articles in this year’s China Focus. For those who wish to read more about China, feel free to dig through Managing IP’s recent articles (available to subscribers and readers on a free trial), including our interview with Judge Chen Jinchuan of the Beijing IP Court and a review of China’s trade mark system since the revised Trademark Law came into effect last May.
