Successfully registering a trademark is not easy. After registration, the trademark owner still needs to do a few important things to keep it alive. Under the China Trademark Laws, registered trademarks can be canceled on the grounds of non-use for three consecutive years.
Like many other countries, China also has a trademark cancellation procedure on the grounds of non-use. If a registered trademark has not been used for over three years, a third party may request to cancel it. The cancellation request is examined and decided by the Trademark Office of China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA). If the parties are not satisfied by CNIPA's decision, they may apply for a review. If the review result is still not satisfying, they may appeal to the Beijing Intellectual Property Court.
Our foreign clients and colleagues have frequently asked questions about the Chinese IP court system. Over the past two decades, the rapid development of both society and economy in China has led to a sharp increase in the amount of IP cases. This has also generated more difficulties when solving IP related disputes. However, in the past eight years, the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) has established an improved jurisdiction system to provide faster and better service regarding IP cases.
