CHINA NEW IP COURT SYSTEM STARTS WITH THE FIRST IP COURT IN BEIJING
Improved intellectual property (IP) enforcement in China took a leap forward last year when the Beijing IP Court opened its doors and accepted its first case. The Beijing IP Court was the initial IP Court of first instance established and IP Courts in Guangzhou and Shanghai became operational shortly thereafter. The introduction of these specialized IP Courts is enabled by the October 2014 pronouncement by the Chinese Supreme Court clarifying the jurisdiction of the IP courts.
