  • 31. Doing Business in China 2014 John Gray Director Patents Murgitroyd & Company Protecting your intellectual assets
  • 32. Doing Business in China: Intellectual Property Considerations John Gray European and UK Patent Attorney 6 March 2014, Edinburgh © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 33. What This Talk Covers … © Basic introduction to intellectual property (IP) © Concerns of UK business © Dispelling some myths © The Dragon plays catch-up © Adapting your IP strategy © China – available patent types © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 34. What this talk covers – pt 2 © Trade Marks – and Chinese transliterations © Domain name issues © IP Insurance © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 35. Basic introduction to IP © What exactly is IP? © Why are IP rights important? © How do I know if I have IP? © Unregistered and registered IP rights © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 36. China: Principal concern of UK business © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 37. Dispelling Some Myths “My technology will be stolen, copied and sold cheaply, possibly by my Chinese partner”. © Many companies in China are skilled and prolific counterfeiters – Correct © There is nothing you can do about it – Wrong “Chinese IP laws are unsophisticated, so protecting IP in China is a waste of time and money” © China’s IP laws remodelled on the German/European system and are very comprehensive “IP rights in China are of poor quality” © Patents issued to foreigners are handled by most experienced Examiners and quality is improving. © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 38. Dispelling Some Myths (cont’d) “Laws and enforcement mechanisms favour domestic interests” © Supreme Courts in larger cities are handing down sophisticated judgments EU judges providing training © German bus manufacturer was awarded $3M damages and an injunction against Chinese infringer in 2009 © Consistency of judgments outside major cities is a recognised problem. 60% of judges have no IP training. This is being addressed “Foreign businesses cannot succeed in litigation in China” © 90% foreign companies litigating in China win their case compared to, e.g. 3040% for foreign companies litigating in US; and at much lower cost © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 39. The Dragon plays catch-up © First UK patent granted in 1449 and UK-IPO set up in 1852 © Concept of IP entirely alien to China as recently as the 1970’s © First Chinese patent granted in 1985 © Chinese Patent Office acceded to all major IP Agreements and Treaties between 1985 and 2001 © China’s emergence as economic superpower reflected in patent filing statistics © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 40. Statistics – Patent Filings compared to other countries © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 41. Adapting your IP strategy © Manufacturing © Sourcing of parts and components © Selling your technology in China © R&D © Partnering with Chinese companies – either in China or at home © All demand knowledge of local IP environment and a suitably tailored IP strategy. © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 42. China – patent types available © Invention Patent © New and inventive technical solutions relating to a product or a method of producing or doing something. Includes improvements to existing solutions © Detailed examination – high “inventive step” threshold © 20 year term (3-5 years to grant) – appropriate for longer life cycle products © Utility Model Patent © New technical solutions relating to the shape and/or structure of a product which are functional rather than aesthetic. Methods and chemical compounds are excluded © Granted without substantive examination – lower “inventive step” threshold © 10 year term (1 year to grant) - appropriate for shorter life cycle products © Design Patent © New designs relating to shape of a product which distinguishes its overall appearance © Granted without substantive examination © 10 year term (1 year to grant) © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 43. China - Trade Marks © ‘First-to-file’ system – Applying to register is very important as China grants vast majority of trade mark rights on first to register – not use © Plan ahead - get rights on file as soon as possible © Register yourselves – don’t leave it to local agent © Transliteration of Trade Mark – Trade mark should be registered in English and in Chinese. Check meaning of transliteration and ensure it sounds similar to trade mark. © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 44. Transliteration of Trade Mark © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 45. Transliteration of Trade Mark - 2 © Coca Cola = “Ke Ku Ke Le” which means “allowing the mouth to rejoice.” © Pepsi Cola = “Bai Shi Ke Le” which means “everything makes you happy.” © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 46. Domain Names © Yes, it is possible to register domain names – “.com.cn” © Register through reputable domain name registrant © Be aware of scams - example © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 47. Domain Names – Scam example © Dear CEO, We are the domain name registration organization in China. © Last week we received an application from someone wishing to register murgitroyd.com.cn. © After initial examination, we noted it is same as your company name/trade mark. © Would you like to pay us handsomely to register it for you? © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 48. IP Insurance © Insurance policy can cover the costs of enforcing/defending IP litigation © Provides a more level playing field for small/medium sized company vs large company © Like any insurance policy, devil is in the detail! © Watch out for a policy which requires an opinion from a barrister of “100% prospect of success” © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
  • 49. Summary © Chinese IP laws are well established and comprehensive © Enforcement problems are recognised and will improve over time © Remember: an Invention Patent has a 20 year term and IP environment is sure to improve markedly within that period – and Trade Marks can last indefinitely © File your Trade Marks early © Give careful consideration to Transliterations © Murgitroyd & Company 2014
