The EU SME Centre, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China along with the China IP SME Helpdesk, are thus pleased to invite you to our upcoming Working Group Meeting on the revised Copyright Law and Patent Law on 18th June from 09:00-10:30 (CEST) | 15:00-16:30 (Beijing). The event will take place both offline at the European Chamber Beijing and Shanghai office and online on zoom.

Insufficient patent and copyright protection and enforcement in China has been a long-standing problem. Finally, on 1st June 2021, the revised Patent Law and Copyright Law have entered into force, bringing along substantial changes such as the creation of the patent linkage system, the introduction of the open license system and the extension of copyrightable works. It is particularly important for foreign companies doing business in China or interested in the Chinese market to understand the recent changes, thus protecting their intellectual properties and legal rights. During this meeting, Mr. Xiaofan Chen from AWA Asia Limited will explain the revised Patent Law, while Mr. Matias Zubimendi from China IPR SME Helpdesk will analyse the changes established in the revised Copyright Law.
