The regulations also state that the members of the TD-SCDMA Industry Alliance have the responsibilities and obligations to actively publicize and evaluate the TD-SCDMA technologies, products and the industry. Meanwhile, they should also fight the irregular competition means that disturb the normal management of other enterprises, so as to maintain the overall image of the TD-SCDMA industry in market promotions. All the members of the TD-SCDMA Industry Alliance should respect the intellectual property rights of other enterprises, actively implement cooperation with upstream and downstream businesses, resolve the disputes in market competitions through consultations and accept the results of market competitions.
All the members of the TD-SCDMA Industry Alliance have reached a consensus on the regulations and the regulations will go into effect after being approved by the alliance's council in the coming weeks.
