China Stakes Out Its Place in Plant Variety Protection: An Update with Experts on PVP and Agricultural IP Developments (...)

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

China Stakes Out Its Place in Plant Variety Protection: An Update with Experts on PVP and Agricultural IP Developments in China Article 14 Any plant variety in respect of which variety rights are granted shall have the characteristic of novelty. Novelty means that the propagating material of the new plant variety in respect of which variety rights are applied for has not been sold prior to the filing date of the application, or has not been for sale, with the consent of the breeder, for more than one year within the territory of China; the propagating material of vines, forest trees, fruit trees and ornamental plants must not have been for sale for more than six years, or the propagating material of other plant varieties for more than four years, in a foreign territory. As always please consult counsel for specific legal advice. Since China established its legal regime for the protection of new varieties of plants in 1997, it has emerged as the country with the largest number of plant variety applications in the world, as well as the most litigious.  China’s current plant variety regime focuses on policy and legislative initiatives, including work on a new Seed Law by the National People’s Congress. Its plant variety protection enforcement efforts also reflect many of the reforms already undertaken in other areas of IP law, including: providing for punitive damages, burden of proof reversals and exceptions and limitations to infringement. Yet, China has yet to accede to UPOV ’91, the latest version of the WIPO treaty to protect plant varieties.  To what extent does China’s plant variety IP regime address China’s twin goals of becoming an agricultural innovator and meeting the food security needs of its vast population? We will explore the public policy implications of China’s efforts to become a major force in new plant varieties, the technical aspects of China’s emerging plant variety regime, and how these changes fit into China’s overall IP practice.

China: A Patent Linkage Update

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description China committed to a patent linkage (Hatch-Waxman) regime linking pharmaceutical regulatory approval and patent infringement determinations in the Phase 1 Trade Agreement concluded with the United States in January 2020. The linkage regime is part of a series of pharmaceutical IP related reforms set forth in that Agreement. With the enactment of China’s revised patent law, as well as the adoption of new rules on patent linkage on July 4, 2021 and a new Judicial Interpretation on July 5, 2021, the basic legislative framework for China’s new patent linkage regime is now in place. But how will these new rules work in practice?

Toward A Deeper Understanding: Berkeley Asia IP SEP Talk Series 2021 - Concurrent Litigation and Jurisdictional Competition (...)

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Toward A Deeper Understanding: Berkeley Asia IP SEP Talk Series 2021 - Concurrent Litigation and Jurisdictional Competition (Session 2) In recent years China has become a major jurisdiction for standard essential patent (“SEP”) licensing and litigation. A variety of key issues emerge in the process. Overall, certain consensus seems to have been formed between Chinese SEP jurisprudence and its counterparts in other major jurisdictions, such as the cautiously conditioned availability of injunctive relief, a more balanced approach of FRAND interpretation in principle, and the rough compliance with the HW v. ZTE framework in conducting a procedural FRAND scrutiny of the licensing process. On the other hand, challenges ensue in several aspects, including a lack of consensus in optimal FRAND methodologies, the role of antitrust in resolution of FRAND-related matters, how to harmonize global enforcement and deal with the rapidly escalating jurisdictional competition. In addition, new questions keep emerging with the 5G / Internet of Things (“IoT”) era dawning on us. Our success or failure in addressing these challenging discrepancies, will significantly impact the future development of global ICT / IoT industries.  In 2021, the Asia IP and Technology Law Project will host a four-part webinar series, which aims to facilitate in-depth conversations to address the underlying pervasive issues fueling these key challenges. Hopefully, these conversations can also serve as part of the basis to building more consensus and cooperation into the landscape of international SEP jurisprudence. The series will be moderated by Dr. Yuan Hao, BCLT.
