Spotlight on Intellectual Property Law

What a “First-to-Register” system means for your business.

Let’s say you have product made in China under your brand and you have registered that brand in your home country. Registration in your home market doesn’t provide coverage in China. If another party registers your Intellectual Property (IP) before you do, they essential own the rights to your IP in China, even if your product is well-established in the global market. As so much manufacturing takes place in China, it is wise to register your IP in China even if you are not yet selling to the Chinese market. If a competitor were to register your IP, they could effectively shut down your supply chain by preventing your suppliers from exporting your product.
