From China IPR “IPR Model Cases: Part of the Long Journey Towards IPR Case Law With ‘Chinese Characteristics’?”


In late October China’s highest court, the Supreme People’s Court (SPC), released a list of eight model cases (dianxing anli典型案例).   The list is a collection of important cases that suggest the direction of the focus and scope of the court and also signals new trends in its decision making process. The cases listed have wide-ranging implications on protecting trade secrets, unfair competition, trade marks, patents and infringement of the manufacturing process.   China IPR has great synopses of the cases and provides some spot-on analysis here.
