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.
