Chinese Patent Developments [01:03:29]

Even after becoming the largest national patent office in the world, the Chinese government did not slow down the pace of changes to its patent system to achieve the goals released in the ambitious plan prepared by China’s State Council at the beginning of 2017:  to increase intellectual property rights' quality, protection, and commercial usage during China’s current Five-Year Plan (2016-2020).  In this presentation, you will receive the latest and future changes planned by China's State Intellectual Property Office, both structurally (local IP bureaus, satellite offices) and legally (changes to Patent Examination Guidelines and the Patent Law).  You will also receive point-by-point comparisons between several areas of patent law that were much discussed in the U.S. system in recent years, and their counterparts in the Chinese system.  

Ms. Chien-Hale of the Institute for Intellectual Property in Asia will use examples and cases to illustrate the changes in Chinese patent system in the following three areas: 

  • Quality and  Scope:  accelerated examination, expanded protection for software and business method patents, and proposed changes to the Fourth Amendments to the Patent Law
  • Protection:   increasing efforts on administrative enforcement, reducing burden on evidence collection, increasing damage awards
  • Commercialization:  innovation-based entrepreneurship
