Stricter Rules on TM Use in 2022 in China

On 13 December 2021, the CNIPA issued the Criteria for Determining General Illegal Trademark Acts, effective as from 1 January 2022, to strengthen trademark administration, unify the enforcing criteria, and improve enforcement. The Criteria will impose significant influences on the use of trademarks in China and we hope to briefly introduce the highlights through this video. If you need the corresponding newsletter or full English translation of the Criteria, please feel free to contact us at or
