China is a “first-to-file” jurisdiction, meaning that it is necessary to register a trademark in order to obtain proprietary rights over it. China is also a member state to the Madrid Protocol. Thus, the extension of an international registration of a trademark via the Madrid System is possible for this country. Trademarks must be registered via the Trademark Office of the State Administration for Industry & Commerce of the People’s Republic of China(CTMO).

NOTE: In China registered trademarks are valid for a period of ten (10) years from the registration date. They can then be renewed for subsequent ten-year periods indefinitely.

LEARN MORE ABOUT Intellectual Property IN CHINA

A trademark is a tool used that differentiates goods and services from each other. A trademark is a special recognizable sign that can be words, image, letters, figures, 3D logo, sound with colors, or a combination of any of these.

Benefits include notice to the public of the registrant’s claim of ownership of the mark, legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration.

China is a first-to-file country meaning that, all else being equal, whoever applies for a trademark first, will obtain the registration. Unless you can manage to do business without your existing brand, registering your trademark in China is highly recommended.

Both Individuals and Companies are entitled to register trademarks in China. Please check with our intelectual property experts what documents are required for each case.
