About Our Sponsor

By making patent search and analysis accessible and usable for non-IP experts, PatSnap provides scientists with a new source of information for use during research. Research conducted in the commercial sector is often not publicly available until a relevant patent is filed, so for a complete picture of the latest developments, patent data is essential and using citation information and plotting patenting in a given field over time, scientists can follow the multiple strands of previous research and so avoid wasting time on previously unsuccessful avenues.

The Chinese intellectual property legal system has matured rapidly. Just 40 years ago China did not have a patent system, and today the country is aggressively using patent policy to create an innovation pathway to the future.

From improvements in the scope of allowable patent subject matter to enhancements of litigation options, a strong desire by China to be seen as having a level playing field for all parties, China deserves a second look by those doing business in Asia, as well as those who never considered a China strategy.

And while many continue to think that foreign companies are discriminated against in China, new research shows that conclusion is unfounded. In fact, foreign companies enjoy a slightly higher rate of success proving both infringement and obtaining injunctions when compared to their Chinese counterparts.

It seems the Chinese understand the very close link there is between patents and encouragement and incentivization of innovation and invention in a way that the U.S. seems to have forgotten.
