Recent Developments in China's Patents Regime

28 Aug 2017


Since 2011, China has been the leading country in terms of the volume of patent applications among the world. This year marked the 4th Patent Law Amendment in China, which consists of joint infringement, patent misuse, partial design protection, extension of design protection to 15 years, punitive damages, and license of rights.

What do these changes mean to local enterprises who have entered or are entering the Chinese market, and what are the types of patent drafting and deployment strategies to practice in China after the new amendment?
