At the conclusion of the Boao forum for Asia, strengthening intellectual property protection is one of the four major initiatives in Chinas recent expansion. Against this background, Shen Changyu said that the State Intellectual Property Office will start from four aspects and further intensify the protection of intellectual property rights. In the field of institutional management, the National Intellectual Property Office will be reorganized as an opportunity to actively guide the comprehensive law enforcement of patent and trademark, and to better combat all kinds of tort. In the field of legal protection, the State Intellectual Property Office will take the patent law as an opportunity to speed up the establishment of a punitive punitive compensation system for infringement, which will really raise the cost of the law and make the legal deterrent effect fully exerted. In the field of international copyright cooperation, Shen Changyu said that we should take the opportunity of reform and opening up 40th anniversary as an opportunity to deepen international cooperation in intellectual property rights and promote the construction of more open and inclusive international rules for intellectual property rights, so that Chinas intellectual property rights can also be well protected in foreign countries and create going out for Chinese enterprises.
