You business name, or slogan are just as important to your venture as a good business plan, only more so in China. If you are going to start a business or outsourcing your manufacturing into Beijing, the first thing you are going to think about is to register a trademark in China. Or if you face trademark related dispute, or trademark or brand protection issue, you will also consider engage a Beijing trademark lawyer to support your business.

While all plans are meant to be changed, it is far more difficult to change a business name, especially after establishing brand name recognition, a following or loyalty. A registered trademark is critical in defending your name and reputation against copycats, squatters and imitators. But even in the beginning stages, before investing capital into promotional materials or establishing an internet presence, it is important to ensure that the trademark chosen will not need to be changed a short while later.

China Patent law protects inventions. By filing and obtaining a patent from the China Patent and Trademark Office, the inventor of a product receives a monopoly on the commercial exploitation and use of a product for up to 20 years. Patents can protect the functional features of a process, machine, manufactured item, asexually reproduced plant, or composition of matter, for example. Once a patent is issued, or even during the examination phase of your patent application, you may, if you choose to, license your invention for use by others. Licensing can be very very lucrative. But the right agreement is essential. If this describes your situation, call us right away! When your opportunity is knocking, we can prevent it from slipping away with the right deal.

Whether you’re a big company or an individual inventor that want to file your patent in China, most clients want to know how much it’s going to cost to hire a patent attorney based in Beijing.

Your patent needs and concerns are unique to your company and your situation. Rather than tell you what we can do and hope that we eventually get to what you are looking for we ask “how can we help you” and then focus on your patent issues.

At this Beijing Patent Law Firm, our Beijing lawyers have filed for patents on such diverse subjects as superconductors, semiconductor chips, bioengineered cell lines, surgical probes, off-shore drilling platforms, windmills, computer programs, digital communications equipment, and complex machinery.

Not only do we have an unusually broad range of experience, but we understand how today’s accelerated product lifecycles, and the widespread tendency to resort to litigation more quickly, require that you have seasoned, hard-hitting—and cost-effective—patent counsel to help you navigate the growing global marketplace.

We pride ourselves on our ability to work closely with our clients to craft the optimum patent portfolio, in tight alignment with their business strategy, and proceeding from there to:

  •  Create and execute comprehensive and strategic patent prosecution strategies—both offensive and defensive
  •  Draft and negotiate technology licenses
  •  Counsel on the wide range of business issues that intersect with patent law, including antitrust and allegations of anticompetitive practices
  •  And finally, launching vigorous and strategically sound licensing and litigation campaigns.

Whatever your firm’s patent licensing, counseling, or prosecution needs, we’re familiar with the challenges you face and have addressed them before, to great effect, with others.

We know, and appreciate that our clients trust us, and pay us, to serve their IP needs. Our Beijing patent attorney is committed to providing top-notch services in return for that trust and will never treat a client as if we are doing them a favor by working on their matter.

The grant of a patent by the China patent authority provides the patentee with the legal right to prevent others from making, using, and importing the invention for the length of the patent term.

At present, the term for a utility patent is measured as twenty years from the effective filing date of the patent application.

To be patentable, an invention must be new, useful, and nonobvious. A “new” (or novel) invention is one which no one else previously thought of. “Useful” refers to the invention having some use. “Nonobvious” refers to the requirement that the inventiveness involved be more than merely that of the artisan of ordinary skill in the relevant art.

To assess whether the inventor has at least invented something “new”, it is recommended that a novelty search be performed. Although this is not required by the Patent Office, it can often be highly useful in determining whether to go forward and/or how to modify/present the application to the China Patent Office in view of the prior art.

After the patent application is filed with the appropriate filing fee and papers, an examiner at the Patent Office examines the patent application and communicates with the applicant with respect to whether the application is allowable. Very often, this process — called “patent prosecution” — can take several years and additional cost. However, an experienced patent attorney can guide you through the process.
