China has gradually become "most desirable" to resolve the dispute over international intellectual property
As the second largest economy in the world, the Chinese market is huge. Regarding the protection of intellectual property rights, China's position has always been clear and solid and treats both domestic and foreign companies equally and equally. International companies investing in China can achieve good results, and their intellectual property rights are equally well protected. Regardless of which holder of the IPR of the country decides to discuss in China, they can receive a fair judgment.
At the end of 2014, Intellectual Property Courts in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou successively created and creatively carried out their work, initially exploring a separate intellectual property patrol with Chinese characteristics. Since 2017, 18 central cities in Nanjing, Suzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Hefei, Fuzhou, Jinan, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Zhengzhou, Changsha, Xi'an, Nanchang, Changchun and Lanzhou subsequently set up intellectual property courts. On January 1, 2019, the Supreme People's Court's IPO was discovered, and the legal schedule of intellectual property rights was constantly optimized.
The protection of intellectual property protects innovation
The more perfect intellectual property system marks the rates of China's opening to the outside world. In the early days of reforms and opening up, some companies funded by foreign companies question whether their rights could be protected. In the past few decades, foreign-funded enterprises have witnessed the continued improvement of the Chinese intellectual property system. According to statistics, since the implementation of the Patent Law, foreign applicants applied for more than 1.77 million patents for the invention in China, an average annual increase of 11.24%, cumulative applications for trademark registration exceeded 2.19 million, on average an annual increase of 15.49%. More and more multinational companies choose to go to China to seek governance when faced with patent disputes. This aspect is due to the importance of the Chinese market, and on the other hand it emphasizes the trust of foreign-funded enterprises in the judiciary and the implementation of Intellectual Property Law in China.
At the seventh meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress, amendments to the Patent Law (draft) were submitted for consideration. It is understood that the draft will additionally increase the amount of intentional violations, forged patents and fines and will increase the costs of violations.
The practice has shown that the improvement of the intellectual property system is an important guarantee for encouraging innovation in enterprises. With the further advancement of various tasks, in 2020, the judicial system for intellectual property covering the whole country will be basically completed, and the court work on intellectual property of the People's Court will bring new opportunities and development. By the middle of this century, the People's Court will fully implement the modernization of the judicial system for intellectual property and trial and will become a model and leader of international judicial protection for intellectual property.
