China, an Enforcement Roadmap

The UK Intellectual Property Office (UK-IPO) published a new guide ‘China, an Enforcement Roadmap’ (PDF file), which offers guidance to the Chinese Intellectual Property protection and enforcement system.

Aimed at businesses currently or intending to operate in China, the guide offers practical and effective help on how to protect and enforce intellectual property rights, using the current Chinese system.

Welcoming the launch at a business breakfast in Beijing today Andrew Cahn, Chief Executive of UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) said, “As the Chinese economy develops more business opportunities are emerging and increasing value is being placed on Intellectual Property (IP) rights. This new booklet helps prevent businesses from making costly mistakes by providing a better understanding of the Intellectual Property enforcement systems and key contacts in government and enforcement agencies.”
