Περιγραφή

In addition, China is now party to many major international agreements regarding intellectual property rights. However, significant differences still exist between China and Europe, and failure to note these can result in serious consequences for any European SME. This China IPR SME Helpdesk factsheet encompasses the essential information a European SME needs to act upon regarding both protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPR) in China. The different types of IPR, including trade marks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets, are explained with key differences to the European system highlighted.
