The last barrier to break through the science innovation board: intellectual property issues

While becoming an important reference basis for enterprises to be listed on the science and innovation board, intellectual property issues have also become the last straw for enterprises to be listed on the science and innovation board.


As can be seen from the public data of patent applications of listed enterprises on the science and innovation board, the number of patent applications of enterprises before listing is in a steady growth trend, especially in 2018 or 2019, the number of patent applications shows an explosive growth. Since the patent authorization cycle is generally 1 to 2 years, compared with the listing time, it can be observed that the listed companies on the science and innovation board have superior foresight and layout awareness in the preparation of intellectual property. From the time dimension of patent application, reasonable intellectual property layout and planning have a significant boost to the listing of the science and innovation board.


As for the inquiry of intellectual property issues in the listing process, almost all enterprises have received the inquiry about core technology, iterative risk of technical route, technical research and development ability and so on in the IPO inquiry stage. Among them, 117 enterprises, accounting for 80.6%, were directly involved in intellectual property issues when they received SSE inquiries. They were finally listed after several rounds of rectification and audit.


In 2020, a total of 41 enterprises will stop listing on the science and technology innovation board, of which 20, accounting for 50%, are related to intellectual property issues.


Among the intellectual property issues related to the 20 terminated listed enterprises, the ownership of intellectual property, the information disclosure of technological advancement closely combined with intellectual property, and the risk of intellectual property disputes became one of the core points questioned.


In addition to micro-admittance, Zhishen Information, Baishan Cloud Technology, Yisuoxianxia and other enterprises, the previous Guangfeng Technology, Minxin Microelectronics, Jingfeng Mingyuan and other high-quality enterprises sprint science and innovation board are also in the key node of IPO, competitors launched the "attack" with patents, affecting the listing process.

Google Wins Oracle Copyright Row at Top Court, Ending Battle

April 6, 2021


The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Alphabet Inc.’s Google didn’t commit copyright infringement when it used Oracle Corp.’s programming code in the Android operating system, sparing Google from what could have been a multibillion-dollar award.


The 6-2 ruling, which overturns a victory for Oracle, marks a climax to a decade-old case that divided Silicon Valley and promised to reshape the rules for the software industry. Oracle was seeking as much as $9 billion.


Alphabet rose 4.2% as of 12:42 p.m. in New York. Oracle was up 4.0%.


The court said Google engaged in legitimate “fair use” when it put key aspects of Oracle’s Java programming language in the Android operating system. Writing for the court, Justice Stephen Breyer said Google used “only what was needed to allow users to put their accrued talents to work in a new and transformative program.”


Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented. Justice Amy Coney Barrett didn’t take part in the case, which was argued before she joined the court.


Oracle initially sued Google for copyright infringement in 2010. Since then, the case has worked its way up and down the legal system, spurring two jury trials and numerous appeals. The now-overturned appeals court decision had reversed a jury finding that Google’s copying was a legitimate fair use.

Pirate Kala is never OK, JDZZY CHINACOURT protects powerfully the copyright of audio and video works

April 6, 2021

In order to strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights and effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of the parties concerned, the Executive Board of Jingdezhen Intermediate People's Court successfully executed 7 cases involving KTV infringement of copyright of audio-visual works in early April 2021, with a total amount of 61,000 yuan.


The 7 cases involving KTV infringement of audio and video copyright dispute cases for a series of cases. After the Municipal People's Court of Jiangxi accepted the case, it contacted the KTV involved in the case at the first time, understood the situation in detail, explained the law to them and informed them of the legal consequences of intellectual property infringement. Under the unremitting efforts of the executive judge, the person subjected to execution took the initiative to stop showing and delete 104 music TV works in the KTV involved in the case within just two weeks, and actively fulfilled the property obligations. Later, the KTV involved in the case took the initiative to submit to the court that due to the impact of the COVID-19, its business activities were affected by many factors, and it would be difficult to pay the following copyright fees. In order to avoid the recurrence of similar disputes and truly realize the case, the Executive Board of the Municipal People's Court has been running around in many ways, and organized and held work coordination meetings to put forward suggestions to solve the problems, so as to help realize the healthy development of the industry. In the end, under the efforts of the executive judge of the city's middle court, the two sides reached a consensus.


Jiangxi Intermediate People's Court's efficient implementation has been highly recognized by the China Audiovisual Copyright Collective Management Association, and recently sent the banner with the words "Fairness, Fairness, Practicality and Effectivity" to the judges of the Executive Board of the Municipal People's Court to thank the Municipal People's Court for its efforts and contributions to intellectual property protection.
