Court Inaugurated, Signals New Phase


An intellectual property court, a new division of the Lanzhou Intermediate People's Court, was inaugurated in early January, signaling that Gansu's IP judicial protection has entered a new phase, local officials said. The new establishment in Lanzhou, capital of Gansu province in Northwest China, is a key step toward the province's implementation of the country's strategies of innovation-driven development and IP, they noted. The Lanzhou IP court is the 18th of its kind nationwide.
