Navigating the Patent and Innovation Landscape in China

View Session Speakers

Less than two generations 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 allowable patent subject matter to litigation reforms, there is a strong desire by China to be perceived as a level playing field for all parties.

The massive volume of filings at the Chinese Patent Office exceeds the filings of the next four most active patent offices combined. And while the growth of Chinese applications is attributed to domestic patent filings in China by Chinese citizens and Chinese corporations, this filing surge signals that China is on course to become the center for many leading-edge technologies that will enable the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This webinar will address: (1) The substantial changes ushered in by the fourth amendment to China’s patent law, including the creation of a patent linkage system; (2) Increases to statutory patent damages and maximum punitive damages; and (3) How Chinese start-ups are outpacing U.S. start-ups in Artificial Intelligence funding/research.
