Shanghai signs a supplement agreement on intellectual property protection

    The Shanghai Municipal Government signed a supplement agreement to the memorandum of understanding on the intellectual property protection in cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization on Monday to further improve its IP protection.

    At the signing ceremony, the State Intellectual Property Operation Public Platform's Shanghai pilot platform was also unveiled. Shanghai Mayor Ying Yong, Shen Changyu, director of the National Intellectual Property Administration, Francis Gurry, director general of WIPO, and Wang Binying, deputy director general of WIPO, attended the signing ceremony. Chen Qun, vice mayor of Shanghai, presided over the event.

    Ying said the IP protection is vitally important and the city hopes to strengthen the cooperation and exchanges with WIPO to build the city's IP protection highland.  

    Gurry said WIPO is looking forward to deepening the existing cooperation with the National Intellectual Property Administration of China and the Shanghai government, and support the city's development.

    According to the supplement agreement, the city government and the WIPO will strengthen their cooperation in promoting the IP transfer and application, the diversified IP dispute settlement mechanisms, and strengthening the cultivation of IP protection talent. They will also aggregate more international IP protection resources to Shanghai and accelerate the process of building Shanghai into a Pacific-Asian central city of IP protection.

    The State Intellectual Property Operation Public Platform's Shanghai pilot platform will provide IP transaction services, promote financial innovations, branch into the overseas markets, protect overseas legal rights, and operate key industries.

    The platform aims to serve the IP across the country and connect the IP operation and management networks to the world.
