China's First Anti-Monopoly Regulation for Intellectual Property

AnJie Law Firm | June 11, 2-015

On April 7 2015 the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) published China's first anti-monopoly regulation specifically aimed at the abuse of IP rights – the Provisions on the Prohibition of Abuse of Intellectual Property Rights for the Purpose of Eliminating or Restricting Competition – which will become effective on August 1 2015. The drafting of the provisions can be traced back to 2009, when the SAIC established a special taskforce to research and draft the Guidelines on Anti-monopoly Enforcement in the Intellectual Property Rights Field. Based on the draft guidelines, the SAIC issued the draft provisions for public consultation in June 2014. The official promulgation of the provisions marks a giant leap forward for the SAIC in terms of anti-monopoly legislation in the IP field.
