IPR policy seen as confidence booster 2022-08-02
  Policies that China recently adopted on strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights could increase confidence of foreign companies in China, an IP industry expert says.   "China's five-year plan on improving IPR protection may help instill confidence in a market that is too large to dismiss lightly," said Mei Gechlik, founder and chief executive of the website Sinotalks.   Gechlik was referring to a five-year plan adopted last year by the Supreme People's Court for the judicial protection of IPR.   "It could boost confidence in the Chinese market because it clearly identifies the goal to improve 'the state of judicial protection of intellectual property rights' by 2025 through various measures, including the development of 'the intellectual property adjudication guidance system to which Guiding Cases serve as guides'," said Gechlik, founder and former director of the China Guiding Cases Project at Stanford Law School.   China's Supreme People's Court has issued more than 30 intellectual property-related Guiding Cases over the past decade. The "impressive guiding principles stated in those Guiding Cases allow one to feel optimistic about the accomplishment of the 2025 Goal," Gechlik said.   For example, Guiding Case No.113 has established clear principles to allow a foreign natural person (the basketball player Michael Jordan) to seek protection of any specific name used by "the relevant public" in China to refer to the person so long as specific conditions are met.   "These principles help combat malicious registration of celebrities' names as trademarks," Gechlik said.   Last year several moves were made to strengthen IPR protection in China, such as the Outline of Construction of an IP Powerhouse Country (2021-35), which sets out targets for China's IPR protection system.   The Outline and the country's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) for National Economic and Social Development have accelerated the process of intellectual property protection in China, said Zhang Xuan, an executive of IP House, a Chinese IP data provider, at a recent seminar hosted by the University of California, Berkeley.   The law made an important change from protecting products to protecting designs, which is more in line with international industrial design rules, Zhang said.   The American Chamber of Commerce in South China, in a white paper this year on the business environment in China, said: "The importance of IP in national development is fully appreciated at the highest levels of the Chinese government, and they have seriously focused on creating, developing and protecting IP."
Five SMEs Win Inaugural WIPO Global Awards, Two From China 2022-08-02
  The inaugural Global Awards of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) were recently handed out to five small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the Netherlands, Singapore, China and Japan, two of which are Suzhou Raycan and Shanghai Shylon from China.   The inaugural Global Awards celebrates SMEs, which constitute the backbone of the worldwide economy and recognizes those that have used IP rights to develop commercial solutions that have made a positive contribution to society, economically, socially, or culturally. In a bid to ensure fairness, impartiality, preciseness and inclusiveness, a diverse, independent seven-person international (Peru, Nigeria, Jordan, China, U.S., Estonia, Singapore) jury with expertise in IP, innovation and commerce and with geographical representation was invited and formed by the WIPO.   As a renowned international cooperation expert, Dong Songgen, Vice President of China International Cooperation Association of SMEs (CICASME) was one of the invited jurors. "Since December 2021, the international jury had received a total of applications from 272 enterprises of 62 countries. After over half-year stringent evaluation, jurors picked 20 finalists, six of which are from China. Two out of five eventual winners are from China, showing our enterprises' strength to the world and making us a double winner in both the number of finalists and winners," Dong recalls.   In recent years, SMEs' development has been heeded by China, lending tangible support in finance and education. Governmental assistance in protection and use evidently has made SMEs' innovative activities more dynamic and robust. SMEs are the most dynamic entities in economic development in China. Government agencies' continued issuance of effective policies and measures have inspired them to use IP tools to build their brands and enforce their rights and interests, unleashing their full strength in technological innovation in economic development.   Global tourism, dining, transportation and many other sectors have been hit hard during the pandemic. In the meantime, innovative activities in some sectors like biotech, telemedicine and mobile payment are advancing fast in the opposite direction. Some Chinese SMEs are performing very well. In an era that the entire country is embracing entrepreneurship and innovation, the refinement of the Chinese IP system prepares rich soil and nutrients for SMEs' innovation development.   Founded in 2009, Raycan has filed patent applications in the U.S., Germany, Japan and other countries and obtained over 100 patents, covering its self-generated, full Digital PET (Positron Emission Tomography) for high definition and precise quantification of human medical imaging technology. Raycan dedicates to sharing its innovative results with relevant sectors by licensing, constantly exports technology and products backed by Invented-in-China, self-reliant IPs, strives to become a national brand with international competitiveness.   Since 2010, Shylon has been in architectural lighting, using totally LED technology (over 100 patents acquired), dedicated to the design, production and marketing, and was honored "Technologically Advanced Small and Medium-sized Enterprises of 2021" by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. "Our LED landscape light, through the self-developed ZOOMNEO algorithm auto focus technology, the high-precision spectral measurement testers and color calibration algorithms, have cleared many outstanding hurdles in the industry," Wei Min, Shylon's General Manager for International Business, affirms the company's undivided attention to R&D and innovation, low carbon emission and environment protection. IP protection allows the company to go even further without incidents.   Right now, SMEs have become one of the most dynamic economic elements of the innovation economy in China, and kept on supplying power for the country's construction of an innovation-driven country. China's active involvement in IP norm setting under the WIPO framework fits SMEs and other Chinese innovators' need in integrating into international development and offer a business-friendly environment and policy assurances for their engagement in international competition.
