While in the past, European companies went to China to benefit from low-cost manufacturing for exports, nowadays, more companies enter into the Chinese market, establish suppliers’ networks, and some also launch R&D and share latest technology locally for long-term development. Still, the Intellectual property (IP) protection in China is a major concern for European Companies and a key target for launch reforms. If you plan to do business in China, or if you are already trading there, it is vital to know how to use, guard and enforce the rights you have over your IP.
Meanwhile, European technology companies new to China should first check the “List for Prohibited and Restricted Technology Imports “, as technology imports in China are divided into ‘freely importable’, ‘restricted’, and ‘prohibited’. And the IP hazard for particular IP protection also differs depending on whether your company is licensing, setting up a JV, or establishing a WFOE.
