INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS PROTECTION IN GUANGDONG, CHINA IN 2023

  

In 2023, Guangdong consistently followed the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, faithfully studied and implemented the guiding principles from the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Second Plenary Session of the 20th CPC Central Committee, the guiding principles from General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions on comprehensively strengthening intellectual property rights (IPR) protection and the guiding principles from the important speeches and instructions during his inspection tour of Guangdong, fully implemented the “1310” Development Scheme proposed by the CPC Guangdong Provincial Committee, and complied with the work requirements of the Guangdong Provincial People’s Government in vigorously implementing thePlan for the Construction of an Intellectual Property Power Country(2021-2035), the Directive Calling forIntensified Protection of Intellectual Property Rights, and the National Plan for Protection and Application of Intellectual Property Rights for the 14th Five-Year Plan Period. In particular, the province coordinated implementation of the IPR strategy, strengthened the law-based IPR protection, improved the whole-chain IPR protection mechanism, and stepped up the effort in making Guangdong into a demonstration province for the country’s IP power and a world-class IP province within the Greater Bay Area (Guangdong-Hongkong-Macao Greater Bay Area).

  

I. High-Level Overall Planning and Promotion of IPR Protection

  

The overall planning for IP has been strengthened. Both the CPC Guangdong Provincial Committee and the Guangdong Provincial People’s Government attached great importance to IPR protection. Huang Kunming, Secretary of the CPC Guangdong Provincial Committee, emphasized that IPR must be viewed from an overall and strategic perspective and Guangdong must adhere to the guidance of developing a demonstration province for the country’s IP power, comprehensively strengthen the IPR protection to ensure the implementation of new development philosophy, the creation of a new development pattern, and the promotion of high-quality development. The provincial government convened executive meetings to study and deploy IP-related work, and held conferences with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), to jointly promote Guangdong’s development of world-class GBA (the Greater Bay Area) IP province and building of national IPR protection demonstration area. The work conference was convened for the comprehensive reform of the China-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City. The Guangdong Provincial People’s Government and CNIPA jointly issued the Implementation Plan for theComprehensively PilotReform of Application and Protection of Intellectual Property Rights in the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (2023-2027)to promote the construction of a world-class IPR ecosystem demonstration system.

  

Legal support for IPR has been enhanced. The province has established a local legal system guided by comprehensive legislation on IPR and supported by separate legislation on patents, copyrights, geographical indications, technology secrets and others. The province issued the Interpretation of Regulations of Guangdong on IPR Protection and the Interpretation of Regulations of Guangdong on Geographical Indication (GI), and published the Introduction and Interpretation of Regulations of Guangdong on Copyright to promote the implementation of local IPR regulations. The Department of Justice of Guangdong issued the 2023 Plan and Responsibility List for Improving Legal Awareness, and collaborated with the government’s legislative outreach offices to raise public awareness of legislation and law. The High People’s Court of Guangdong Province issued the country’s first data-related judicial policy document on strengthening judicial protection of data elements IPR to serve high-quality development of digital economy.

  

Exemplary demonstrations of IP have been reinforced. Guangdong Administration for Market Regulation (Guangdong Intellectual Property Administration) worked with 10 cities including Guangzhou and Shenzhen regarding to jointly develop city’s comprehensive IPR strength, worked with Heyuan, Meizhou, and Zhanjiang to jointly develop specialized cities with IPR strength,and promoted the construction of IPR counties. The province has 10 national IPR pilot demonstration cities, 21 IPR pilot demonstration counties, and 8 IPR pilot demonstration zones. Guangzhou and Shenzhen were included in the first batch of national demonstration cities for IPR protection and the first batch of national pilot cities for the construction of standardized IPR public services. Guangdong Province and Shenzhen City were among the first batch to be included in the CNIPA’s list of local pilots for data IPR protection and passed the acceptance inspection. The province has built 4 national pilot zones for commercial secret protection innovation, 16 pilot zones for the Golden Inner Bay Trade Secret Protection Innovation Program, and 1 foreign-related trade secret protection base. Shenzhen Qianhai Research Institute for Intelligent Copyright Innovation and Development passed the final evaluation by National Copyright Administration of China as a pilot specialized at “blockchain + copyright” innovative application.

  

IP serves the development of the Greater Bay Area. Guangdong Administration for Market Regulation (Guangdong Intellectual Property Administration) signed the Guangdong-Macao IPR Cooperation Agreement (2023-2025)with the Economic and Technological Development Bureau of Government of the Macao Special Administrative Region, and worked with the Intellectual Property Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to accelerate the implementation of co-operation programs. A total of 410 Guangdong-Hong Kong, Guangdong-Macao co-operation programs were held. IP authorities of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao hosted the 5th Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Intellectual Property Trade Expo and International Geographical Indications Products Trade Expo, the 5th Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area High-value Patent Portfolio Layout Competition, and the 1st Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (Guangdong) High-value Trademark and Brand Cultivation Competition. Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Sub-forum of the Business of IP Asia Forum was held in Hong Kong for the first time. The Guangdong/Hong Kong Intellectual Property (IP) and Development of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Seminar was held in Huizhou. The Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Guangzhou Technology Cluster has been ranked second in the Global Innovation Index for four straight years.
