The BBC reports that it has been a big week for IP rights in China. Honda has won what is reported to be a copyright case, allowing it to stop a third party from producing Honda brand bikes. Paw Inc have managed to stop the production of pirated Garfield books and China has announced that it will introduce criminal sanctions against IP infringers, including prison sentences.
The IPKat says it’s worth watching IP developments in China considering what a big market it is.
