PDF Edition - China’s Guidebook for Pharmaceutical Patent Protection

April 2012

Today, hundreds of drug companies are operating joint ventures in China. Unfortunately, many of these companies are risking their rights because they’ve opted not to file for patents in China.

Certainly, China’s patent law is complex and radically different from Western standards in regard to judicial protections and remedies. Plus, patent rights are overseen by multiple government agencies, so it’s hard to know who covers what.

But despite the challenges of filing patents in China, the risks for not filing them include losing your intellectual property rights as local counterfeiters and copycats co-opt your products — and your profits.  You don’t have to take that risk.

With this resource developed by Access China Management Consulting Ltd., FDAnews offers non-Chinese companies the know-how to move into China’s lucrative pharmaceuticals market without giving up their intellectual property rights.

Written in English, China’s Guidebook for Pharmaceutical Patent Protection pulls together regulatory, social and market insights that reveal what overseas companies must know to protect their patents under Chinese law. Step by step, you’ll benefit from the practical guidance you need to prepare to enter the market with the strongest possible intellectual property strategy.
