China plans to establish 20 more intellectual property rights (IPR) protection and fast IPR service centers this year in a bid to provide faster and more efficient IPR services, the country’s IPR authorities announced recently.
In recent years, China has been committed to enhancing the construction of a coordinated fast IPR protection system.
By far, over 60 IPR protection and fast IPR service centers have been set up across the country, providing market players with convenient, efficient and low-cost IPR protection channels.
The IPR protection centers are built to offer one-stop comprehensive services including fast IPR review, verification and protection to enterprises in a bid to address difficulties in obtaining evidence and reduce the duration and cost involved in IPR protection.
The fast IPR service centers aim to provide county-level industry clusters with faster pre-review processes, confirmation and rights protection on IPR-related issues.
