On June 28th, RWS and Managing IP presented a webinar of the topic ‘China IP Trends: The Shift in Patent Filing’. Guest Speaker Justin Simpson of RWS (founder of inovia) reviewed filing data and trends from WIPO, comparing Chinese filing data to statistics from Japan and the US and predicted how filing statistics may look over the next 5-10 years. Simpson introduced fellow guest speaker Xia Zheng, founder and president of AFD China Intellectual Property, with a Q&A of what the figures mean for IP owners outside of China. Zheng discussed important strategies for filing in China including types of patents, enforcement options as well as tips for filers based on Zheng’s vast experience in the industry.
The webinar concluded with two case studies prepared by AFD China and gave listeners a chance to hear real-life solutions to filing problems. During the Q&A period, audience members asked questions directly to Zhang and Simpson. We have received excellent feedback from attendees who specified that the information provided will help them as they file into China.
