Today I ran across a video of my presentation on patent litigation in China from the IIPLA conference on June 7, 2016. Although I am always horrified to see myself on video, this does allow my readers to see how I view the advantages of Chinese patent litigation. Note that this is five months old, which is like 5 years in Chinese patent litigation time. The law has continued to evolve for the better, and the courts continue to court foreign patentees to use the Chinese enforcement system that I believe is currently the most important in the world.
The video is available at this link or by clicking the image above. Note that the PowerPoint that I am referring to throughout the presentation is not shown during the video, so have made it available for download here. Please let me know what you think.
The World Intellectual Property Organization has reportedly upgraded its technology, creating an intelligent automatic translation tool which can better help people read patent applications from China. It's said to be an upgraded version of "WIPO Translate," which can reportedly adjust the word order to make the translation results more like English. See more here.
