国际知识产权律师联合会前会长:中国知识产权制度不断完善

返回列表 来源: 发布日期: 2020.02.20

  日前,国际知识产权律师联合会前会长巴斯蒂亚·科斯特接受了中国知识产权报记者专访,就中国知识产权保护发表了一些看法。


  在科斯特看来,知识产权是连接他与中国的一条纽带。2009年,他跟随国际知识产权律师联合会代表团第一次来到中国,访问了中国国家知识产权局。在之后的5年里,他每年都会访问中国国家知识产权局。2012年至2015年,他成为国际知识产权律师联合会会长。“在这段时间里,中国知识产权制度不断得到改善,我也看到了,在中国如此大的国家,知识产权要做得这么好,需要花很多心思。在与中华全国专利代理人协会的交流中,我深切地感受到,中国知识产权代理机构在服务质量和深度上都有了迅速提升。”科斯特说。


  “中国知识产权制度在快速发展的同时,也面临着一些挑战。如何维持专利申请数量与质量之间的平衡就是挑战之一。”科斯特说,“鉴于中国繁荣的经济,其本身就需要大量的专利和商标等知识产权。此外,如何提升社会公众以及企业的知识产权意识也是中国面临的挑战。中国企业也需要了解自己拥有知识产权以及进行知识产权布局的最终目的是什么。”


  科斯特说,一些人对中国知识产权制度最新发展还缺乏了解。当他介绍中国拥有世界最成熟的知识产权行政机构和全球最多的专利商标申请量时,这些人感到非常不可思议。每年对大量专利申请以及商标注册申请进行审查不是一件易事。但是,中国已经拥有数量充足的代理机构以及行之有效的行政体制来应对知识产权申请数量日益增长的挑战。同时,中国也建立了强大的司法体系来保障执法。可以说,中国已经努力确保知识产权制度在社会各层面得到实施。科斯特说,在他印象中,中国是为数不多的对知识产权侵权行为采取司法强制措施的国家之一。在他看来,国际上关于中国知识产权制度方面的负面评价通常是基于错误的认知,并非基于客观事实。


  “鉴于中国知识产权制度的成功实践以及其在较短时间内取得的显著成绩,我相信中国知识产权制度在未来仍将得到不断的完善。全球知识产权权利人可以确信,他们的知识产权在中国将获得很好的保护和有效的实施。”科斯特表示。(柳鹏 熊花平|中国知识产权报)


  Recently, the former President of the Bureau of Federation of International IP Attorneys (FICPI) Bastiaan Koster shared comments on China's IP protection in an interview with China Intellectual Property News.


  According to him, IP was his connection to China. His experience with China dated back to 2009 when he visited the country for the first time. At the time he was involved in FICPI. In the five years to follow, every year he joined the FICPI delegation to the meeting with the then State Intellectual Property Office of China. During the period 2012 to 2015, he served as President of FICPI. "During this period, I could see how the IP system was continuously improved and that much thinking went into how to do in best in such a large country like China. I noticed during these meetings with All-China Patent Agents Association and also engaging with Chinese patent and trademark attorneys professionally is the rapid increase in quality and depth in Chinese IP firms," said Koster.


  "Having an IP system that is developing as fast and to the magnitude of the IP system in China is obviously not easy and comes with challenges. One of the issues is to maintain the balance between output (number of filings) and quality,"said Koster. "In view of the strong economy in China there is a huge demand for patents and trademarks. Another challenge is education for individuals and companies as to the role of IP. I believe every company should have a thorough understanding what the end goals are of having IP rights and an IP portfolio. "


  In Koster's eyes, many people have no idea about IP system in China. When he tells them that China has one of the most sophisticated IP Offices and files the most patents and trademarks in the world, it came as a surprise to them. To process the large number of patents, utility patents and trademarks annually being filed in China is no easy task.  Starting with having sufficient IP attorneys, enabling IP firms, having a very strong administrative system to deal with IP applications and a strong Court system to deal with enforcement. The government of China has done an excellent job to ensure that the rapid growth in the IP system takes place at all levels. In his experience China is one of the few countries having judicial enforcement measures for IP infringement. He therefore believes that the negative comments some people hear about the IP system in China is often based on incorrect perceptions and not on facts.


  "Given the success story of the IP system in China and the very short time it was obtained, I am confident that the IP system will continue to improve at its current pace. The rest of the world can be assured that their IP rights will be well protected and enforceable in China," according to Koster. (Liu Peng /Xiong Huaping|China Intellectual Property News)
