All Eyes on IP Protection at CIIE

All Eyes on IP Protection at CIIE


With the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) on the horizon, how a slew of world-debut new products and technologies is becoming a pressing issue. Now with the clock at T minus three months, a host of arrangements have been made to accomplish the above goal.
Shanghai has decided to launch a special campaign on CIIE-related IP protection in the city from August 1 to November 10, according to an action plan issued by the General Office of Shanghai IP Joint Committee recently. The plan requires uncovering clues of IP infringement and evaluating if such infringement constituted during the whole course of CIIE. Concerted efforts will be made to allow easy access to the Shanghai 12330 IP Assistance and ComplaintHotline and 12315 Consumers' Complaint Hotline. The green channel for receiving IP complains related to CIIE will be initiated, ensuring quick action on handling, investigating, processing cases and offering feedback.

It was this “Whampoa Military Academy” for IP that educated China’s first batch of corporate IP management personnel. Many of these engineers left Foxconn in the years since.
