To successfully halt counterfeiting in China, it is essential for one to prove that his or her IPR have been infringed, backing by a significant volume of evidence. In Chinese Court the burden of proof lies with the plaintiff. As one proves his ownership via IPR certificates he must also prove the infringement via physical evidence including contracts, photographs of infringing products and proof of sale which have been validated by a notary public.

As a follow-up event of the meeting on the Trademark Law, this meeting aims to explain why the evidence of IPR infringement is important, what can be used and how to effectively secure the evidence needed. The European Chamber is pleased to invite Mr. Lionel Yan and Mr. Benjamin Miles from Blackpeak to share their best practice on evidence notarisation.
