Best Practices for Brand Expansion in China: How to Navigate a Unique Intellectual Property Landscape

With over 1.3 billion consumers, China claims to be the world's largest target market for global brand owners. However, multinational firms are quickly learning that in order to seize rampant growth opportunity in China, they must deal with the country's complex intellectual property landscape. Early leaders in the region have established a clear set of best practices for trademark filing and maintenance that greatly improves the odds of success against counterfeiters and trademark squatters. According to the paper, between 2006 and 2012 over 5 million trademarks were published in China, a 76 percent increase in a six-year period. In 2012, China published 924,414 trademarks, the most of any nation in the world.

Orphan Works and the Search for Rightsholders: Who Participates in a 'Diligent Search' under Present and Proposed Regimes?

Over the past several years, policy makers and private actors have developed an evolving set of approaches for addressing the orphan works problem - a problem that arises when "the owner of a copyrighted work cannot be identified and located by someone who wishes to make use of the work in a manner that requires permission of the copyright owner,"preventing follow-on uses of works. These approaches usually attempt to address the orphan works problem by employing some threshold mechanism to differentiate true orphan works, to which the proposed solutions would apply, from non-orphaned copyrighted works. This paper examines in detail the core schemes for identifying rightsholders among the leading orphan works regimes and proposals.
