The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) is soliciting public comments on the Draft Amendment of the Trademark Law until 27 February, 2023. You can click here to read the full draft.

This is the fifth amendment to China's Trademark Law with some of proposed changes aiming at improving trademark protection, including combating bad-faith filing and streamlining trademark procedures.

The British Chamber of Commerce in China is hosting a session to interpret the proposed changes to the law and implications for foreign businesses if changes are enacted. We are pleased to have William Wenquan YANG, Partner at Panawell & Partners to present on the draft amendment and take questions from the audience. We are also hoping that the insights from Mr. Yang can inform the comments the Chamber and members are going to submit to the CNIPA.

Please note that it is a hybrid session and conducted in English. In-person attendance will be limited and on a first-come-first-served basis. The event is free for members of BritCham China, BritCham Southwest and BritCham Guangdong, and 100 yuan per person for non-members.



中国英国商会将组织讲座,解释拟定的法律修改及如果修改生效对外国企业的影响。我们很高兴邀请到来自泛华伟业知识产权的合伙人William Wenquan YANG作为主讲人介绍修正案草案并回答听众提问。我们也希望专家的见解能为商会和会员给中国国家知识产权局提交意见起到帮助。
