The article discusses how companies can protect infringement of their Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in China. Revisions to IPR laws and the 2008 National IPR Strategy seek to improve the legal frameworks for the protection of IPR of companies. It is reported that companies in China face regular infringement of their patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. It is suggested that to protect their IPR in China, companies should establish internal controls to identify and protect IPR, and register IPR to take advantage of legal protections. In an administrative investigation, a company has to file a complaint about infringement of its IPR-protected products to a local administrative agency. Companies can also file civil or criminal cases in China's courts.
