 Intellectual Property Office officials: oppose trade protection in the name of intellectual property rights


Chinas implementation of the policy of strict protection of intellectual property rights is obvious to all. Zhang Zhicheng introduced a total of 1 million 382 thousand applications for patent applications in 2017, up 14.2% from the same year, and ranked first in the world for 7 years. 5 million 748 thousand applications for trademark registration have been accepted for 16 years in the world. China has continuously strengthened its administrative enforcement of intellectual property rights. In the past 5 years, 192 thousand cases of patent infringement and counterfeiting have been investigated, and 173 thousand cases of trademark infringement and counterfeiting have been investigated. The judicial protection is constantly strengthened and the intellectual property courts of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and a number of intellectual property courts have been set up to punish the infringers in accordance with the law and protect the legitimate rights and interests of the rights holders. The global business environment report released by the world bank shows that in the past 3 years, Chinas business convenience has jumped 18 places in the global rankings, and has been significantly improved in the past 18 years. The State Intellectual Property Office (IPR) survey showed that the social satisfaction of Chinas intellectual property rights protection rose from 63.69 in 2012 to 76.69 in 2017, and the effectiveness of protection was universally recognized. At present, China is promoting the legal compensation ceiling, adding punitive damages system, strengthening administrative enforcement in key areas, and actively carrying out arbitration mediation. China has continuously strengthened multi sectoral cooperation in intellectual property rights with other countries and regions. At present, the degree of economic globalization is getting higher and higher, and the problems of innovation cooperation and related intellectual property protection, transformation and transfer are increasingly complex worldwide. The recognition of intellectual property rights, technology diffusion, benefit sharing and piracy and piracy are the common problems facing all countries. To solve and improve these problems, we can not rely on trade protectionism, not to deviate from the purpose of the intellectual property system, and to use intellectual property as a weapon to curb the development of his country. Zhang Zhicheng said that, through closer international cooperation, we must jointly strengthen the effective protection of the achievements of innovation, work together to maintain a healthy and orderly market order, promote the realization of fair competition, make the welfare of the innovative results shared by human beings, and build the intellectual property system into a bridge of innovation and cooperation among the countries in the world. On the basis of interest, we should promote the establishment of a dynamic cooperative system. This is the common responsibility of all members of the international community, especially those of great powers like China and the United States. Over the years, the practice of intellectual property protection in China has always been linked and promoted to the international practice. It has continuously strengthened the cross sector cooperation with other countries and regions, coordinated cross-border joint law enforcement actions and combating the illegal behavior of intellectual property rights. According to introduction, in 2017, China and the United States successfully detected 7 / 7 transnational infringement of intellectual property rights; China and the United States and the United States and the United States carried out several joint enforcement actions against the key commodities; China and the Russian customs carried out the joint law enforcement action of the intellectual property protection of postal express channels. China and the United States are one of the most important partners in intellectual property rights. At present, both China and the United States are global technology producers. In 2017, the United States obtained 24 thousand Chinese patent licenses, ranking second. The US Qualcomm Corp became the largest foreign patent company in China in 2017. In 2017, China obtained 11 thousand patent licenses in the United States, and the total amount was among the top five. At the same time, China has received 51 thousand applications for patent applications through the Patent Cooperation Treaty, second only to the United States and jumped to the second place in the world. China opposes the protection of intellectual property rights in the name of trade protection. Zhang Zhicheng believes that there exist intellectual property disputes between Chinese and American enterprises, and intellectual property disputes exist between American enterprises and other countries. This is an objective reflection of the operation of the intellectual property system. We should treat it rationally and correctly evaluate it and improve and solve the problem through cooperation. In fact, whether in administrative or judicial ways, Chinas channels to solve intellectual property disputes are smooth and effective. It is irresponsible and unhelpful to blame others for stealing intellectual property. China is equally and equally protective of Chinese and foreign enterprises, and is committed to ensuring that the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese and foreign obligee are not infringed. For example, in the Sino US Qualcomm case, the Chinese court rejected all the claims of Shanghai Qualcomm and high Qualcomm, protecting the legitimate interests of the United States high Qualcomm in China. At the beginning of this year, Shanghai customs found that American VEECO company was suspected of violating the patent rights of the medium micro semiconductor equipment (Shanghai) Limited company from Shanghai Pudong International Airport, with a value of up to 34 million yuan. Through the administration of the customs administration, VEECO has actively negotiated with the Chinese patenenters, and finally reached a satisfactory global mutual authorized settlement agreement. Statistics show that Chinas effective IPR protection brings huge benefits to foreign rights holders every year. In 2001, Chinas external payment for intellectual property rights was $1 billion 900 million, which amounted to US $28 billion 600 million in 2017, and Chinas cross-border intellectual property rights deficit exceeded US $20 billion. The survey shows that the satisfaction degree of the rights holders of foreign-funded enterprises in China to Chinas intellectual property protection is higher than the national average satisfaction in recent 3 years. Strengthening the protection of intellectual property needs the United States and the United States to go hand in hand. China resolutely opposes the abuse of the rules of intellectual property rights, resolutely opposed unilateralism and protectionism, and is more opposed to the fact that trade protection is protected in the name of intellectual property rights, and disapproves of the practice of putting the relevant principles of multilateral cooperation only by emphasizing the protection of rights without talking about relevant obligations or emphasizing their own interests. Zhang Zhicheng said that China is willing to work with the international community to effectively safeguard the multilateral trading system and to work with all countries, including the United States, to build an open and inclusive, balanced and effective international system of intellectual property.
