2018/11/1


Zhou Qiang, chief justice and president of the Supreme People’s Court (SPC), stressed the construction of a national-level intellectual property right case appeals mechanism will help to improve the legal environment for scientific and technological innovation. A draft of a proposal on patent-related litigation procedures was proposed by the SPC to promote innovation-driven strategy and improve the unified application of law to patent cases to provide judicial protection for China’s intellectual property rights. Zhou explained the draft on October 22 at the 6th Session of the 13th National People’s Congress Standing Committee. He pointed out that building a national-level appeals mechanism for IPR cases was made a focus of the first meeting of the 19th Central Leading Group for Comprehensive Deepening Reform. At the meeting, he also gave a detailed explanation of certain issues, including case types and trial levels, mentioned in the draft.
