CHINA’S SECOND IPR COURT OPENS IN GUANGZHOU

China's second intellectual property rights (IPR) court was opened in the southern city of Guangzhou in last December. The first one was set up in Beijing in early November. A similar court in Shanghai is going to be opened. The IPR court is the third special court in China’s judicial system.

IPR cases in Guangdong accounted for 29.68 per cent of the country's total in 2013, which means that the IPR court is in need in Guangdong.

The court will hear civil and administrative law suits regarding patents, new plant varieties and technological knowledge from all over Guangdong Province except for Shenzhen City.

The court has selected 10 of its 30 judges, each having handled on average at least 600 IPR cases through a fair and transparent process. In addition, it is China's first court to treat all judges as equal.
