BEIJING - China will keep enhancing its efforts to protect intellectual property rights (IPR), and will urge greater international cooperation to deal with this global issue, a senior official said.

Tian Lipu, commissioner of the State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO), the nation's IPR regulator, said last week that China has taken a positive stance on IPR protection in recent decades.

"All nations should promote cooperation and jointly fight IPR violations instead of blaming each other," said Tian.

The State Council, or Cabinet, released a national blueprint in 2008 for the sustainable development of the IPR sector.

Since that year, according to an announcement sent to China Daily, the SIPO and other departments - including the
Ministry of Public Security and National Copyright Administration - have held four dialogues with foreign enterprises and one with domestic companies. All achieved satisfactory effects, the announcement said.

The SIPO has taken more than 430 actions to improve and protect the IPR industry since 2009, the announcement said.

In October 2010, the State Council launched a nationwide campaign against copyright infringements and counterfeit products.
