Description

In 2010, China received 1.2 million patent applications and approved 814,825 patents. In comparison, the USPTO received 520,277 patent applications and granted 244,341 patents in 2010. The growth trend in China is accelerating - in 2010 the filings were up 25% and patent grants went up a whopping 40%. With regard to enforcement, 4,422 patents were litigated in China in 2010, compared with 1,674 patent litigation cases in the U.S. There is no question that China is becoming a major player in IP creation and enforcement. The question is, how does this affect the rest of the world? What are the threats and opportunities posed by China’s growing IP regime? How should U.S.-based businesses and U. S. lawyers prepare themselves to address the rise of Chinese IP?
