China Sets Up Intellectual Property Right Protection Aid Centers

According to Xinhuanet.com, China's State Intellectual Property Office has approved the establishment of 61 intellectual property rights protection aid centers and launched a special nationwide hotline (12330) dedicated to IPR protection aid in an effort to encourage individuals, lawyers and organizations to actively respond to intellectual property disputes.

The IPR protection aid service is available to Chinese citizens and legal persons who can't afford the cost involved in the processing of intellectual property disputes and lawsuits due to financial difficulties or who encounter intellectual property issues beyond their own solving capabilities.

The IPR protection aid center mainly provides IPR consulting, IPR analysis, IPR pre-warning and fund support to the eligible parties. These parties shall submit an application for aid in their own domicile or permanent residence area, or the domicile or habitual residence of the violation party.
