Patent Litigation and China: Next Hub for IP?

Patent Litigation and China: Next Hub for IP?

We tend to focus on intellectual property rights in the United States. But China is becoming a major player in both filings and enforcement of IP. As a result of its efforts to become a nation of innovators, China is becoming a popular place to file patent applications. From 2010 to 2012, patent applications in China represented 73 percent of the world’s increase in filings. According to a recent National Patent Development Strategy, China intends to have 2 million patent applications in 2020. (By comparison, the U.S. had 571,000 patent applications in 2013.)
