These new judicial interpretations come a month after the 4th version of the Chinese Patent Law was passed, which aims to strengthen patent prosecution, incentivize innovation, and crack down on patent infringement. Chofn IP notes, that the new patent laws “are friendly to the applicants and the patentee, and will certainly strengthen IP protection in China.”
