The Trademark Law of China was adopted on 23 August 1982, and revised on 22 February 1993 and 27 October 2001.  Registered trademarks indicate trademarks that have been approved and registered by the trademark Office, and these include trademarks, service marks, collective marks, and certification marks.  
Precise IP Firm’s trademark services include:     Pre-filing advice on trademark registrations; Chinese trademark availability search; Trademark applications and registrations in China and Hong Kong; Renewal of trademark registrations.
The Patent Law of China went into force on 12 March 1984, and was amended on 4 September 1992 and 25 August 2002.

There are three types of patents in China:

  • Invention patents
  • Utility model patents
  • Design patents
For Chinese invention patents, they must possess novelty, inventiveness (the same as non-obviousness) and practical applicability (utility).
For Chinese utility models, they are sometimes referred to as small inventions because they have comparatively lower level of inventive step and are less costly than an invention. Subject to preliminary examination, a utility model only takes several months from filing to grant. Therefore utility model protection is worthwhile for some invention-creations that have small technical improvements but are of significant commercial value.
For Chinese design patents, an application is also preliminarily examined only. A design is an artistic creation which features a decorative or aesthetic exterior appearance of an article, unlike invention or utility model which involve technical solutions.

Any work of a foreigner and stateless person published for the first time and within the territory of China shall enjoy copyright within China in accordance with copyright law.
