CCH PRC Patent Law Seminar 2009
Updates and interpretation of the third
amendment and corresponding patent
practices of MNCs in China
Shanghai Sep. 22nd, 2009 Beijing Sep. 24th, 2009
East IP Group was founded by Dr. Gao Lulin, former Commissioner of the State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO), and a group of experienced Chinese and international attorneys in order to provide top quality intellectual property services. East IP Group currently comprises a Chinese intellectual property law firm, a patent prosecution firm, and a trademark agency services firm. This unique group structure enables our attorneys to offer a complete set of intellectual property and technology services ranging from patent prosecution, trademark application, intellectual property rights protection and enforcement, to the representation of multinational companies in the handling of their major investment projects and complex litigations in China.
First enacted in 1984, the Patent Law was previously amended in 1992 and 2001. This "Third Amendment" will become effective on October 1, 2009. The Third Amendment goes a significant distance toward harmonizing Chinese Patent Law and commercial expectations with those of the other industrialized nations. The third amendment to the Patent Law contains sea changes that will affect how Chinese and multinational companies will compete on the basis of patents in this emerging market. The new law may change the way the patent game is played in China. Multinational companies will have to develop a proactive yet practical strategy for dealing with the possibility of compulsory licensing of patents in China. Moreover, for those companies with R&D centers in China, there must be a patenting strategy that works for China, as well as the rest of the world. On the other hand, patent litigation will also become more complex since the new law will allow the prior art defense and international patent exhaustion. Therefore, more skilled patent litigators are needed to navigate through this uncharted water. This program will be a practical and interactive exploration of the new Patent Law and its impacts on foreign businesses in China. Foreign companies doing business in the PRC should be aware of the various changes brought into effect by the Third Amendment, including a change to the novelty standard, restrictions on inventions based on genetic resources, a streamlining of enforcement, and so on. CCH is more than honored to organize the seminar in cooperation with EastIP. In this seminar, you will learn:• Updates on the third amendment and the corresponding implementing rules• In-depth interpretation on the amendments and relevant rules by direct government officials• Impacts and suggestions on the patent application operations of multinationals in China• Case studies Regulation Updates and Interpretation
Session One: The new Patent Law and the implementation rulesThis Third Amendment is expected to bring the Chinese Patent Law into closer conformity with international standards, particularly commensurate with U.S. Patent contract and litigation practice, even though several changes, such as the absolute novelty requirement, still clearly reflect the influence of European patent laws on the development of the Chinese Patent Law. These changes will have profound effect on global industries and innovative Chinese companies that expect to obtain and enforce patents in China. To help foreign businesses and practitioners stay on top of the new laws, major changes are outlined as follows:• Co-ownership (Article 15) • Clinical Trial Exemption (Article 69(5)) • Foreign Filing (Article 20) • Genetic Resources (Articles 5 and 26) • Absolute Novelty Requirement (Articles 22 and 23) • Enforcement of Patent Rights (Articles 11 and 60–69) • Prior Art Defense (Article 62) • Other changes • Compulsory License (Articles 48 and 50) • Implementation Rules Senior Officer, Legal Affairs Department of State Intellectual Property Office The Professional's First Choice
