China to form national office for IPR fight

(China Daily)

08:08, November 10, 2011

BEIJING - The central government is to establish an office to facilitate the crackdown on infringement of intellectual property rights (IPR) and counterfeit products, the State Council said on Wednesday.

China faces an arduous task fighting IPR infringement as well as the production and sale of fake products, so greater administrative and law enforcement efforts are needed, according to a statement issued after a State Council executive meeting.

The meeting highlighted demand for stricter supervision over manufacturers and inspection over the markets for food, medicine, cosmetics, agricultural materials, construction materials, machinery and electronics, and auto parts.

The office will be set up under the Ministry of Commerce.

Police are urged to establish a cross-regional enforcement system to facilitate investigations, according to the statement.

Huang Hua, a copyright expert with Beijing-based Wowa Media Company, said the recent food safety scandals and controversial events over Internet IPR may have triggered the measures by the central government.

"Since more and more individual copyright owners have been aware of defending their rights through legal suits, cases involving IPR have increased significantly in recent years," Huang said. "Such a trend requires more market supervision and a perfect legal framework, and that is why government is anxious to enhance related legislation and its enforcement."
