During the fifth Trilateral Policy Dialogue Meeting between the Commissioners of SIPO, Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) that was held in Taej, South Korea on December 1st, 2005, Chinese commissioner Tian Lipu introduced some new developments:
- the situations of patent examination practices (see more here)
- measures enacted by the Chinese government to strengthen IP protection
- foundation of the Leading Group for National Intellectual Property Strategy Formulation of the P.R. China.
IP Dragon is curious about the 'Leading Group for National Intellectual Property Strategy Formulation'. Sounds like another institution that makes research on IP in China less transparant. Hopefully IP Dragon will be wrong.
