2009/9/24

As the initiator for the establishment of IP complaint service station at the Canton Fair, China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME) organized a workshop on infringements of machinery and electronic products, hoping to extended the intellectual property protection before the fair.

In recent years, intellectual property infringements during the Canton Fair increase steadily, and have become the most concern of the government. During the 105th Canton Fair in the spring festival this year, the industry of machinery and electronic received about 200 complaints of patent infringements, involving 282 firms and more than 30 trading groups.

Principals from the Ministry of Commerce, State Intellectual Property Office, and State Administration for Industry and Commerce discussed with representatives from 40 firms involving the infringements to help them better protect their rights and benefits during the Canton Fair and keep them away from the infringement complaints, so as to improve the benefits of the enterprises.

It is learnt that, the CCCME will organize several lectures and trainings for enterprises exhibitors on laws and procedures for rights protection, hear enterprises' opinions, and take effective measures to decrease the number of complaints so the exhibitors could gain more benefits during the fair.

It is lucky for Chen Jun to began his career in the IP industry 14 years ago when the first group of IP managers for businesses appeared on the stage in China and he has been in the industry.

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.
