China calls for international cooperation in IP protection


19:13, December 09, 2011

LONDON, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday called for international cooperation in a proactive and constructive manner in creating a favorable global environment for intellectual property (IP) protection.

The remark was made by Tian Lipu, Commissioner of China's State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) while attending the Britain-China IP Symposium, the first in its kind held between the two countries.

The two side made frank, open, practical and professional exchanges at the meeting. Tian said in an interview with Xinhua that the symposium has provided a platform for the two countries to promote mutual understanding.

He called for further cooperation between the two countries in intellectual property protection.

Noting that some of the media coverage on China in this field was marred by distortion, Tian said that China, as a country with a short history of IP enforcement, has done a lot of work in the field.

If the IP protection has been so inadequate in the country, "I could hardly imagine that any foreign companies would be willing to file their patent applications and make investment and technology transfer in China," said the official.
