Taiwan's Exciting 2007: IP Case Proceeding, IP Court and Patent Attorney Acts

Tsai Lee & Chen describes 2007 as "exciting for IP professionals in Taiwan". In the course of merely six months, the Legislative Yuan (Taiwan’s Congress) has passed three important laws and regulations related to the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.
  • Intellectual Property Case Proceeding Act;
  • Intellectual Property Court Organic Act; and
  • Patent Attorney Act.

For a brief summary of these Taiwanese IP milestone laws see here.

Taiwanese IP laws (although the above mentioned I have not found there yet) can be found at the site of the Taiwan Intellectual Property Office (TIPO) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China, see here.

Taiwan's national IP regime can be found here.
