Dr. Jian Xu’s Book: 《Chinese Intellectual Property: A Practitioner’s Guide》Kindle Edition


Dear Friends

I am glad to let you know that my book, Chinese Intellectual Property: A Practitioner’s Guide, is now available on Amazon, in both the electronic and paperback format.

You can click the link below to preview or order the electronic version from Amazon.

This book summarizes my years of experiences of serving clients on every aspect of Chinese intellectual property. It is designed to be a highly practical handbook, dealing with the full range of IP rights and the full range of situations, from basic advice on registration strategy, to detailed advice on dealing with rights which arise during the course of employment, as well as practical guides on conducting IP infringement actions in China.

Among the gems in this book are highly practical guides to the appointment of investigators – a key aspect of protection in China –, tips for combating pirated trade marks – a prevalent problem for brand owners operating in China-, detailed action plans for intellectual property enforcement, as well as the best steps to use the systems in place at the Canton Fair to obtain instant redress.

Chinese IP law and practice is of vital concern to rights owners all round the world. China is now part of the global economy – a big and growing part. Its vast market, with more consumers entering every year as a result of government policies, is simply too good to miss for businesses globally. The practical advice in this book is definitely a useful resource for global IP professionals when/if they deal with China IP issues for their client/company.

I also list the Table of Content of my book so you know exactly what is inside. Hopefully, you might find it an intensely practical and “how-to” type of China IP handbook.

If you are interested, I would be grateful if you can order one for yourself or your firm/company, and/or recommend the book to your relevant contacts. Should you have any questions, comments or reviews, please do feel free share them on Amazon or NiuYie here.

Many thanks for your interest and support.

All the best.
