IPR protection for a better business environment
China strengthened efforts on intellectual property rights protection for a better business environment this year.
The China Council for the Promotion of International Trade released commercial mediation rules for the settlement of foreign-related intellectual property rights disputes, the first of its kind in the country on Oct 29.
Taking effect on Nov 1, the rules detail regulations on applications, personnel, modes and fees related to the mediation of IPR disputes.
The rules are expected to play active roles in improving China's IPR dispute resolution mechanism, advancing commercial mediation development, and helping the country engage deeper in global IPR governance.
