The IP Tribunal of the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) recently issued a decision in Dunjun v. Tengda ((2019) SPC IP Civil No. 147), holding that the manufacturer’s making and selling of routers directly infringed a telecommunication method-of-use patent even though the manufacturer itself did not perform the patented method. This case is recognised the Chinese Akamai case.

The European Chamber is delighted to invite Mr. Steve SONG, Partner and Patent Attorney of Beijing DHH Law Firm, who represented the defendant in this landmark case to provide our members insights by studying the judgement of a few cases regarding multi-party patent infringement.

Medical resource shortages are increasingly challenging for many countries battling the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the need, various companies are donating money, personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, medicines, disinfectants, food, and other valuable resources. Compliance risks should be carefully considered when providing this valuable assistance to ensure that the resources are put in the right hands with no strings attached. Meanwhile, during the COVID-19 outbreak, the government offers various subsidies to support foreign businesses. Government subsidies beneficiaries face the potential risk of non-compliance.

The European Chamber is delighted to invite Simon Hui, Lead Partner of Baker & McKenzie LLP to share his experience and insights to help our member companies to stay compliant during this special time. The meeting will cover the below topics:

1. Overview of legal requirements under PRC Law
2. Regulatory framework under FCPA, UKBA and France Sapin II Law
3. Industry specific requirements in the medical industry
4. Identify and manage risks arising from donation and government subsidies
5. Case study
