China center to tackle IP disputes

The center is to provide third-party mediation and dispute-resolution services to technology companies involved in intellectual property disputes.

China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will be establishing a digital dispute-resolution center to deal with disagreements over intellectual property and online copyright issues.

According to the Sina Tech news site yesterday, the plans had been unveiled at an annual meeting by the Internet Society of China and the Mediation Center Internet Legal Professionals held in Beijing last week.

The dispute-resolution center will be an arm of MIIT responsible for IP disputes, and will provide third-party mediation services and dispute-resolution services to technology companies involved in disputes.

If everything goes according to plan, the center is likely to be established sometime this year, Zhao Tianwu, director of the ministry of electronics intellectual property center, said at the meeting.
