5 Tips: Protecting Electronics and Software Innovations

By February 11, 2023January 11th, 2024International IP, IP Insights

China is Australia’s largest trading partner and a preferred location for manufacturing.  These tips will provide insight into the Chinese IP system and preventing knockoffs.

1

Consider registering the Chinese translation of your trade mark to appeal to Chinese consumers and prevent trade mark squatters.

2

Always specify the details of your patent in the description of your patent. Unlike Australia, the Chinese patent system does not acknowledge diagram/graphical descriptions.

3

Licensing and technology transfer can be an effective way for Australian companies to receive revenue from the Chinese market without entering China themselves.

4

Software and business methods are now generally more patentable in China than in Australia.

5

Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan all have separate legal systems.  Protection in each territory requires separate registration.
