Companies with a significant intellectual property stake in China should put in place an effective protection and enforcement strategy against local and overseas competitors. The difficulties of patent enforcement in China are perennially in the news; many would say China has a checkered history when it comes to IP matters. The Chinese system is actually founded on different principles to the developed country system: civil law rather than common law.

Before a patent is officially granted in China, patent rights for that patent application do not exist. Therefore in the case of infringement, the applicant must wait until the patent is granted in China before they can take enforcement action against an infringing party. This is the case for all three types of patents.  

For invention patents, after the grant of a patent, the patent owner may request reasonable compensation from the infringer for any infringement that has occurred during the period from when the invention was initially published in the patent gazette, and the grant of the patent. Invention patents are published  in the patent gazette 18 months after the initial applications. However, there may be a significant time period before the invention patent is granted after substantive examination.

Generally, the best trademark lawyers will be in large cities or in pockets of high technology such as Shanghai. Inquire whether your trademark lawyer has experience registering trademarks in your industry. For example, a software company would be better served by working with a trademark lawyer familiar with technically complex products and how to appropriately describe the software in a trademark application.

This Shanghai Law Firm, is here to help protect your business and your name.  Don't trust your extremely valuable intellectual property to some discount website.  Your name, slogan or design is how you distinguish your products or services from those of your competition.  If you're already using your name, slogan or design, then you've already developed good will and brand recognition in the market, and if you haven't started using it yet, that's exactly what you need to develop.  Don't allow your competition to capitalize on your hard work and good name.  More importantly, don't cut corners when it comes time to secure your legal rights and protect your trademark.

We strive to maintain a registration for your trademark. Note that because of the nature of the trademark law, our trademark practice extends beyond Shanghai to other province or cities.

Most businesses separate themselves from the competition with a distinctive logo or trademark for which they have exclusive rights.

Our shanghai trademark lawyer reminds you to register your trademark in shanghai to protect your logo, brand and product in shanghai to prevent counterfeiting or illegal copying.

Preparation before registering a trademark in shanghai

Why get a trademark? There are many reasons businesses obtain trademarks. They include: 

  1. Develop an identity. Your trademark gives you a unique identity that no one else can use and helps people recognize your mark and associate it with your business or services.
  2. Legal protection. With a registered trademark, you can legally stop anyone from registering or using your mark or a similar mark. After five years, your trademark becomes incontestable.
  3. Internet protection. A trademark protects other businesses from fraudulently using your name on the internet and stealing business from you. In addition, no one can enter an internet domain address that in any way infringes on your trademark.

Now Let's talk about trademark filing

Filing for a trademark in shanghai has a number of steps and can be tricky. The following tips will help you to correctly file your federal trademark application: 

After a trademark application is filed, the shanghai Trademark Office conducts an examination of the application.  For example, if there is both an objection and a refusal to register the mark, then a response will be necessary to meet the objection and to overcome the refusal to register.  This happens frequently, and an experienced trademark attorney will likely know just what to do when writing the response.  

In our Shanghai trademark lawyer's experience, it pays to respond to every office action.  Many issues are within the range of discretion of the trademark examining attorney, and good legal arguments in support of the trademark may well be persuasive.
