Beijing launches new intellectual property mediation center

Posted by

As reported by the official China Daily news agency, a new legal center for mediating intellectual property (IP) disputes opened this week in Beijing.

“The center, jointly operated by the China Law Society’s Chinese Law Counseling Center and the Intellectual Property Law Association, will seek to improve the country’s IP environment, according to Cui Xuefeng, its director.”

“Most of the IP professionals employed by the center are senior judges who have more than 10 years experience handling IP cases.”

IP litigation remains a relatively slow and expensive process, thus additional alternate dispute resolution (ADR) options are certainly welcome.

Beijing is already home to the Beijing Arbitration Commission (BAC), a.k.a. the Beijing International Arbitration Center, which was established in 1995 as a permanent arbitration body to settle contractual and property-related disputes.

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) also established a digital dispute-resolution center in 2013, specifically to resolve disputes over IP and online copyright issues.
