Intellectual Property Rights
Intellectual property rights are important assets of a company. Both preliminary protection mechanism and post actions against any IPR infringement are important to avoid loss or other unnecessary issues when these assets appear in another jurisdiction. Like many other countries, China has a set of comprehensive regulations and mechanisms to protect IPRs; and Chinese government is more proactive than others whenever there is any IPR infringement arising. As a country with the largest population in the world, however, market situation and shortage of resources could make IPR protection more complex. Taking additional protection through professional advice is important to safeguard your assets from being infringed in a strange world.
