USA and ChinaWe are delighted to share a recent journal article by our China IP expert, Paolo Beconcini, as published in the Review of Intellectual Property Law (RIPL). In this article, Dr. Beconcini provides a thorough and well-documented review of recent changes in China’s regulations on trade secret protection and enforcement. Many of these changes were made in response to the U.S. WTO lawsuit of 2018 and the U.S.-China Trade Wars, including shifting the burden of proof and lowering thresholds for criminal enforcement. The article assesses the implementation of promised changes, and provides suggestions for further changes as well as guidance to practitioners for navigating trade secret enforcement challenges in China.
