In China, the GIPC advocates for increased protection and enforcement of patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Specifically, we are working to reduce counterfeiting and piracy, promote the use of legalized software by government and state-owned enterprises, advocate for improved patent quality and protection, and press for enhanced protection of undisclosed regulatory data protection.
To address these priority issues, the GIPC is conducting high-level dialogue between U.S. intellectual property experts and China’s government officials, business stakeholders, and academics; establishing a robust platform for advocacy on China’s IP legal and regulatory frameworks; exchanging best practices through execution of seminars and research; and coordinating policy messages to the U.S. government. GIPC works collaboratively with IP stakeholders — including academics, domestic industry, and Chinese organizations focused on intellectual property — to improve IP protection and enforcement in China. We also advocate to the U.S. and Chinese governments on advancing effective IP policies and enforcement in China.
Specifically, GIPC has engaged actively on the development of a Judicial Interpretation on Internet liability, and continues to monitor and provide input to the relevant Chinese ministries on amendments to China’s IP laws.
GIPC’s program aims to promote China’s goal of building an innovative society that benefits domestic and foreign rights holders.
