China IPR SME Helpdesk Guide to IPR Protection in China for Mechanical Engineering
The mechanical engineering sector presents some unique challenges when it comes to IPR protection in China, and requires a proactive approach and a continuing IPR strategy well after registration has taken place. Along with the usual issues of brand infringement, unauthorised use of trademarks and counterfeiting of copyrighted promotional material, manufacturers also have to consider the infringement of their patents, whether this be an entire machine or individual parts or mechanisms. Counterfeiting of components and whole pieces of machinery has been a common complaint of companies operating in this sector in China, and is made possible due to the presence of a skilled, experienced work force and the use of reverse engineering. This guide addresses these IP issues and provides EU SMEs with advice on how to avoid, identify or enforce rights against potential infringement.
