The rise of intellectual property in China is at unprecedented levels. In 2017, IP filings in China soared with patent applications exceeding the combined total applications received by the US, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the European Patent Office.
China has made huge changes to its laws and trading environment, which have created huge opportunities for British companies. As a British business setting up or expanding in China, what’s the difference in the Trademark law between China and the UK? What is the best way to protect your brand?
