Intellectual Property Rights Forum

The forum advocates for a fair and strong pro-IP environment within China and provides members with information on intellectual property related issues and regulations, through seminars and legislative briefings. Over the past year, the committee has submitted comments on numerous draft laws and regulations, including Copyright Law Amendment, Service Invention Remuneration, and the Trademark Law Amendment. In support of AmCham’s policy submissions, the IPR forum holds member briefings on the released laws and regulations and their impact upon the American business community. The forum has also held meetings with the visiting officials from the US Patent and Trade Office and other US agencies on topics such as the Special 301 Report and the Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade.
