Seminar | New Patent and Copyright Laws – What the changes mean for SMEs

The German Centres in China in Beijing, Shanghai and Taicang and the China IP SME Helpdesk jointly organise this online-offline seminar to provide an overview of the main changes and what companies should know when operating in China’s market.

The new Copyright and Patent Laws entered into force on 1 June 2021. Both the copyright and the patent law underwent major and important changes introducing new concepts such as the patent linkage system and the open license system or the possibility of reversal of the burden of proof as well as increasing damages for infringements. To develop a comprehensive IP strategy for China’s market, enterprises should have a good understanding of the recent changes.
