The Fourth Amendment marks the first major changes to China Patent Law since 2008. These changes will have a major impact on both prosecution and enforcement. Key amendments include enhanced protection of patent rights, changes in design patent practices, and establishment of an “Open License System” that makes it easier to license granted patents.
