A themed salon focusing on intellectual property (IP) service was held on April 13 in Guangzhou Development District (GDD), offering practical guidance for companies in IP application, protection, and management.
The event, integrating offline sharing, salon communication, as well as an online live broadcast, attracted a total of 196,179 viewers. It was part of a series of activities held by GDD to welcome World Intellectual Property Day, which falls on April 26.
Seven guests from a wide range of industries, such as a government staff member, an entrepreneur, an industry researcher, and a lawyer, were invited to the salon to share their opinions on IP.
GDD was approved to construct a national demonstration zone for the cluster development of IP service in 2017, and the district has achieved profitable outcomes as it is currently home to more than 216 institutions managing IP service.
GDD has seen four new IP demonstration companies added to the list, accounting for 57.1 percent of the total amount in Guangzhou in 2019, and the district has won the only patent gold medal in Guangzhou.
Mo Jun, an entrepreneur from Unicmicro (Guangzhou) Co Ltd, noted that he hopes more preferential policies could be released to help small- and medium-sized enterprises in the application of invention patents.
