"Under the current environment, respecting intellectual property rights, severely punishing infringements, and protecting intellectual property rights not only protect the parties’ own rights, but also protect the technological innovation of equipment companies, allowing innovation in a fair, just, and equal business environment and market order. Walking steadily. "Zhang Xianyin, chairman and general manager of Chengdu Tuoli Technology Co., Ltd., said in an interview with reporters that building a perfect, efficient and strict intellectual property protection system is conducive to creating a social atmosphere that respects technological innovation, promoting and Incentive equipment companies to take innovation as the core, thereby incentivizing equipment companies from low-level manufacturing to high-level intelligent manufacturing.
According to Wang Guohua, a lawyer at Beijing Zhongwen Law Firm, strengthening intellectual property protection can not only create a normal business atmosphere, but also effectively promote intellectual property rights holders ’investment in intellectual property improvement. It can also effectively prevent the occurrence of counterfeit products. Promote fair transactions in the market economy.
The country continues to strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights
"China has formulated a large number of laws and regulations on intellectual property, such as patent law, trademark law, copyright law and other laws and regulations, which constitute our country ’s intellectual property legal system. With regard to issues related to intellectual property protection, There is a clear legal basis. "Wang Guohua said in an interview with reporters. Patent protection is a distinctive feature of modern society. Under the guidance of the concept of governing the country according to law, China has made a series of deployment work on innovation and intellectual property protection from the top-level design. In recent years, China has issued a series of forward-looking innovation strategies and policies, including "In-depth Implementation of the National Intellectual Property Strategy Action Plan (2014-2020)" and "Several Opinions on Accelerating the Construction of a Powerful Country under Intellectual Property". The introduction of these systems embodies China's determination to strengthen intellectual property protection, encourage innovation, and improve the innovation environment.
Dong Mingzhu, deputy of the National People's Congress, to encourage independent innovation of enterprises, there must be a good atmosphere to protect patents. If innovation achievements are not respected and protected, who else is willing to devote themselves to innovation, if the majority of innovation-oriented enterprises do not have the motivation and willingness to innovate, and if society as a whole lacks an atmosphere of innovation, how can they build an innovative country?
At present, China is actively building an open economic system. Under the “Belt and Road” strategy, equipment companies have gone abroad, especially in need of a good environment for international trade, investment and intellectual property protection. In this regard, equipment companies must be more proactive in using the intellectual property system, strengthen intellectual property protection, and play a greater role in participating, promoting, and even leading international intellectual property protection and rulemaking.
"At the national level, I think that we should establish and improve the protection system of intellectual property laws and regulations, so that intellectual property protection has a legal basis. Relevant departments should actively carry out publicity work on intellectual property laws and expand the channels for infringement and evidence collection by innovative enterprises." Departments should increase the punishment of infringement, increase the cost of infringement, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of innovative enterprises, and protect the technological innovation of enterprises.
Lawyers suggest increasing the cost of intellectual property infringement
"There are certain deficiencies related to infringement compensation, especially the civil punishment for malicious infringement is not strong enough. Some rights holders pay higher costs in defending their rights, but the compensation gains obtained are lower, which hinders some intellectual property rights. Rights holders' rights protection. "Wang Guohua made recommendations based on the current situation. In respect of malicious infringement, he should be given heavier economic penalties. However, for non-malicious infringements, the principle of prudence should be adopted to determine the amount of infringement compensation appropriately.
Some experts believe that some manufacturers do not respect intellectual property rights and do not pay for the price to abuse the work of others. This will not only damage the rights of all patented companies, but also dampen the innovation enthusiasm of the entire industry. For manufacturers using patents, it is bound to create an unfair market competition environment.
As a bridge and link between innovation and the market, intellectual property is an important system for ensuring the success of innovation and entrepreneurship, and an effective support to stimulate the enthusiasm of innovation and entrepreneurship and protect the achievements of innovation and entrepreneurship.
At present, infringement of intellectual property rights also puzzles some innovative enterprises. Chengdu Tuoli Technology Co., Ltd. has applied for 51 patents, including 29 authorized patents, and has accepted 22 pending patents, including 4 international invention (PCT) patents. The company invests millions of dollars in innovation every year, patent maintenance and Hundreds of thousands of yuan are invested every year in protection. In addition, it has 6 registered trademarks including "TALY" and "Sali Kang", among which "TALY" is recognized as a famous trademark in Sichuan and Chengdu.
"Under the current situation, enterprises have high innovation costs and low infringement costs. In the case of intellectual property rights infringement disputes, companies have difficulties in obtaining evidence and litigation, and their intellectual property rights cannot be protected from infringement." Zhang Xianyin worried in an interview Say, "If intellectual property rights are not to be infringed by imitation companies, in addition to the legal packaging protection of intellectual property rights by the companies themselves, it is more important for the country to take tough measures to maximize the cost of infringement of imitation companies and to eliminate them. The effect of the idea of infringement, if it does not reach this effect, the innovation of the entire society will gradually die out. "In fact, if the protection of intellectual property rights is weak and infringed, it will cause enterprises and technical personnel to spend a lot of money and time on project development. And the cost of labor, because the cost of imitation is far lower than the cost of innovation, eventually imitation products occupy the market advantage, so that enterprises lose the incentive to innovate, so that social innovation continues to fade.
When equipment companies encounter infringement of intellectual property rights, how should they take up legal weapons to protect themselves?
For this, Wang Guohua gave suggestions. "When an act involving infringement of intellectual property rights occurs, the enterprise shall take active measures to promptly obtain evidence for the infringement involved, fix the relevant facts that prove the existence of the infringement, and request the infringer to stop infringing knowledge by issuing a lawyer letter or a warning letter. Property rights. "Wang Guohua said in an interview with reporters that when the letter sent is invalid, he can bring a lawsuit to the court to pursue the civil legal liability of the infringing party, or he can complain to the relevant administrative department and request the administrative department to deal with the infringement.
