China IP: Quarterly legislation and case law update

Skyline view of Shanghai World Financial Center with words “China IP Webinar” written in English and Mandarin.

This program on the latest developments in intellectual property (IP) law in China was part of a series of quarterly updates from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on IP developments in China.

Between January and March 2022, China drafted or implemented several IP-related measures and decided several key cases. This one-hour program provided an opportunity for IP attorneys, businesses, inventors, and other IP stakeholders to get access to a unique and concise source of information, unlikely to be found elsewhere, including segments on:

  • patents
  • trademarks
  • copyrights
  • trade secrets
  • IP enforcement

These topic-specific segments were led by senior USPTO attorneys with extensive China IP experience.

Experts from the USPTO’s Office of Policy and International Affairs (OPIA) presened updates on China IP legislation and cases in this one-hour long event, which was the fourth in a quarterly series initiated in June 2021. Michael Mangelson, Principal Counsel and Director for China IP from OPIA, introduced and moderated the discussion.

  • Susan Anthony, senior trademark attorney (trademark developments)
