IP Workshop | Design Protection in China, Session II on July 6th

The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) and its Intellectual Property Working Group (IPWG) with the China IP SME Helpdesk jointly organise a Two-session IP Workshop “Design Protection in China”. The last session will be on July 6th.

Design protection is often overlooked by European companies doing business in China, despite being a very useful IP right as it protects the appearance of products and allows enterprises to act against copycats offering lower-quality products by copying the design elements. Design protection is thus essential not only for the creative industry but also for manufacturers developing unique design solutions. Under the current regulatory framework, design protection primarily falls under the scope of design patent. However, there are also other available design protection measures.

During the first session, held on June 29th, our IP experts provided tips on how to protect design through design patents and practical examples of enforcement in case of copycats and infringements.

The last appointment of the workshop will focus on design protection through copyright and anti-unfair competition remedies.
