CHINA TO OPEN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COURTS

On 6 June 2014, the Chinese government took a major step forward in the protection of IP.

As someone who is married to a card-carrying member of the Chinese Communist Party (the daughter of the Chairman of Dong Feng Motor Co, Liuzhou, no less), I take a special interest in these affairs.

As Chairman Mao famously said: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step…”.

China has voted to establish specialised courts for intellectual property rights.  The decision was endorsed at the third meeting of the Central Reform Leading Group on Comprehensively Deepening Reforms, a top-level decision-making and coordinating body established by the 3rd Plenum of the 18th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party in November 2013.

The introduction of a court which specialises in Intellectual Property is as a crucial step forward for the protection of IP rights in China.  It continues a process of started in 1993 when the first IP tribunal was set up within Beijing’s First Intermediate People’s Court.

A great leap forward – without doubt.
