Chinese E-Commerce Law was passed by the Standing Committee of National People's Congress on August 31, 2018 and is to take effect on January 1, 2019.

Articles 41 to 45 specifically address intellectual property. The e-commerce platform may be held liable if it does not take measures after receiving complaint from an IP owner that a business on the platform infringes it's IP. If the business on the e-commerce platform states that there is no infringement, the e-commerce platform will inform the IP owner who then must take actions at an administrative authority or in court within 15 days. Otherwise, the e-commerce platform will stop the measures it has taken against the business on platform.
