Overview of Intellectual Property Law in China

With offices in Beijing, Shanghai, and San Francisco, Wang & Wang assists clients with the acquisition and protection of intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, and trademarks, in China.  Our attorneys conduct registration and anti-infringement actions for major retailers, manufactures, and technology companies.

American companies doing business in China must establish ownership of their intellectual property ("IP") rights in order to maintain control of valuable intellectual property assets.  Intellectual property regimes are applied on a territorial basis, meaning that businesses with enterprises abroad must pursue IP protection in every country they do business.  We assist clients that produce and/or sell goods in China.  Such representation demands an in-depth knowledge of not only each nation's local laws, but also international conventions and treaties.  Please see our international filings page for more information about the specific rules that pertain to copyrights, patents, and trademarks.
