Abstract

The application of intellectual property protection means depends on the type and the characteristics of a threat. Common intellectual property threats in China concern legal infringements such as patent, trademark, design or copyright infringements. Yet intellectual property rights infringements are only part of the IP threat environment in China. In addition to such legal-illicit threats, also legal-licit, that is to say uncertainties within the boundaries of the law and factual challenges are predominant in China. In China the impudence and creativity of infringements show that the extent of IP infringements and challenges remains a difficult task to counteract.
