Program on Latest on Developments of the Chinese IP Courts

[Arthur Tan-Chi Yuan]

Unfortunately, the program is cancelled due to the speaker not receiving timely travel approvals.  We will try to reschedule the program in 2017.

The first specialized IP court in Chinese was established in November of 2014 in Beijing.  Two others were shortly formed in Shanghai and Guangzhou.  These three specialized IP courts have somewhat changed the IP enforcement landscapes for Chinese domestic and foreign IP rights' holders.
