On 23 and 24 September, IP Key China in partnership with the Supreme People’s Court of China (SPC) organised a forum on the ‘Comparative Approach to Judiciary Procedures’ with the support of the Delegation of the European Union to China and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), bringing together judges from the Chinese courts and the EU Member States to exchange practices on intellectual property (IP).
The forum covered comparative discussion on several topics within the Chinese and EU jurisdictions, including but not limited to trade secret protection, damages calculation in IP disputes, provisional measures (injunctive measures, preservation of assets, etc.), the calculation of legal costs and the role of technical experts in IP disputes. Each discussion topic was accompanied by a Q&A session for a more in-depth exchange and increased knowledge sharing.
The EU and China have maintained a solid relationship on intellectual property rights judicial protection based on continuous exchange and dialogue, with IP Key China committed to organising activities and providing platforms for communication.
