In two brief recorded presentations, counsel Xiaoyan Zhang (Hong
Kong) of Mayer Brown JSM's Intellectual Property and
Technology, Media & Telecommunications practices provides
practical advice on patent litigation in China and discusses common
issues that arise in technology licensing transfer into China.
More than 2 million patent applications were filed in China last
year. And the number of patent infringement cases has been rising
steadily in the past 10 years. With the recent amendments and
improvements to the China's Patent Law and administrative
patent rules, Xiaoyan explains how US companies can and should take
a more proactive approach to enforcing their patents in China.

to a myriad of Chinese regulations, including the "improvement
