Since 2013, China has moved up the GII ranking steadily for 9 consecutive years with strong momentum.

在分项指标方面,从创新投入看,中国的贸易、竞争和市场规模,知识型工人等2项大类指标均处于全球领先地位,阅读、数学和科学PISA量表得分,国内市场规模,提供正规培训的公司占比,国内产业多元化,全球研发公司前三位平均支出,QS高校排名前三位平均分,产业集群发展情况,资本形成总额在GDP中的占比,企业供资GERD占比等细分指标排名靠前。

从创新产出看,中国的优势集中在无形资产、知识的创造、知识的影响。其中,本国人专利、商标申请,创意产品出口在贸易总额中的占比等细分指标均实现全球领先。2021年,知识传播这一大类指标进步明显,特别是知识产权收入在贸易总额中的占比这一细分指标持续进步,表明中国正逐步从知识产权引进大国向知识产权创造大国转变。

In terms of innovation outputs, China's advantages are concentrated in Intangible assets, Knowledge creation, and Knowledge impact. Specifically, subdivision indicators such as native patent and trademark filings, and Creative goods exportsas percent of total trade are global leading indicators. In 2021, the sub-index of Knowledge diffusion has made significant progress Especially the subdivision indicator of Intellectual property receiptsas percent of total tradehas made continuous progress, indicating that China is gradually transforming from a large country of intellectual property in-licensing to a large country of intellectual property creation.

经典案例

集佳联合韩国SHIN&KIM律师事务所代理三花智控在韩国专利法院二审胜诉

Unitalen and Korea Law Firm SHIN & KIM Represented Client Sanhua to Win Second Instance in Patent Court in Korea

案件概述:

Summary of the case

浙江三花智能控制股份有限公司(简称三花智控)于1994年成立。经过27年的发展,三花智控已形成以家电制冷元件、汽车热管理元件两大业务板块为核心的发展格局。作为家电制冷配件龙头企业,三花智控规模效应显著,长期稳健经营。在涉及本次海外诉讼的电子膨胀阀领域,目前全球仅有6家实现量产,三花智控以约一半的份额位居第一。

Zhejiang Sanhua Intelligent Controls Co., Ltd. ("Sanhua") was established in 1994. After 27 years of development, Sanhua has formed a development pattern centered on the two major business segments of home appliance refrigeration components and automotive thermal management components. As a leading enterprise in home appliance refrigeration parts, Sanhua has achieved significant economy of scale and long-term stable operation. In the field of electronic expansion valves involved in this overseas lawsuit, currently only 6 companies in the world have achieved mass production, and Sanhua ranks first with about half of the market share.

三花智控与韩国某电子公司已形成稳定的电子膨胀阀销售关系,某竞争企业欲向该韩国公司销售类似结构的电子膨胀阀,该电子膨胀阀将安装于韩国某电子公司销往中东地区的空调中。该竞争企业为了争取到韩国某电子公司的商业订单,于2019年初针对其自产电子膨胀阀与三花智控韩国发明专利第1455952号和第1478777号,向韩国专利审判院提出了专利保护范围确认之诉,主张其自产电子膨胀阀未落入三花智控上述两件韩国发明专利权保护范围。韩国专利审判院经过审理,在一审判决书中认定竞争企业的电子膨胀阀产品落入第1478777号的保护范围之内,但是未落入第1455952号的保护范围。此外,竞争企业还针对三花智控的韩国发明专利第1157746号向韩国专利审判院提起了无效宣告请求,经韩国专利审判院审理,该专利被全部维持有效。

Sanhua has stable cooperation regarding electronic expansion valve sales with a Korean electronics company. A competitor intended to sell electronic expansion valves of similar structure to this Korean company, and these electronic expansion valves will be installed in air conditioners sold by the Korean electronics company to the Middle East. To win over a commercial order of the Korean electronics company, the competitor filed a petition regarding the patent protection scope determination of the self-produced electronic expansion valve and Sanhua's Korea Patents for Invention No. 1455952 and No. 1478777 in early 2019 to the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal, claiming that its electronic expansion valve does not fall within the patent right protection scopes of the above-mentioned two Korean inventions of Sanhua. After trial, the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal determined in the judgment of the first instance that the electronic expansion valve product of the competitor falls within the protection scope of patent No. 1478777, but does not fall within the protection scope of patent No. 1455952. In addition, the competitor also submitted a request for invalidation with the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal against the Korean Patent for Invention No. 1157746 of Sanhua. After trial by the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal, the patent was maintained valid entirely.

针对上述韩国专利审判院的两份一审判决书,某竞争公司和三花智控均向韩国专利法院提起上诉。20219月,韩国专利法院下达了两份二审判决书:

In response to the two first-instance judgments issued by the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal, the competitor and Sanhua both appealed to the Patent Court in Korea. In September 2021, the Patent Court in Korea issued two second-instance judgments:

1)第2020he6866号判决书:撤销韩国专利审判院做出的判决(2019dang587号),认定某竞争公司的说明书及附图中记载的发明落入三花智控韩国第1455952号发明专利的权利要求1的权利范围之内;诉讼费由某竞争公司承担;

(1) Judgment No. 2020he6866: revoking the judgment (No. 2019dang587) made by the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal, determining that the invention disclosed in the description and drawings of the competitor falls within the scope of claim 1 of Sanhua's Korea Patent for Invention No. 1455952; the litigation costs shall be borne by the competitor.

2)第2020he6613号判决书:维持韩国专利审判院做出的判决(2019dang588号),驳回某竞争公司的上诉,认定某竞争公司的说明书及附图中记载的发明落入三花智控韩国第1478777号发明专利的权利要求1-47-9的权利范围之内(等同);诉讼费由某竞争公司承担。

(2) Judgment No. 2020he6613: upholding the judgment (No. 2019dang588) made by the Korean Intellectual Property Tribunal, rejecting the appeal of the competitor, and determining that the invention disclosed in the description and drawings of the competitor falls within the scopes of claims 1-4 and 7-9 of Sanhua's Korea Patent for Invention No. 1478777 (equivalent); the litigation costs shall be borne by the competitor.

典型意义:

Typical significance:

集佳联合韩国SHIN & KIM律师事务所代理三花智控应对本次韩国专利诉讼取得了全面胜利,这也是迄今为止国内企业在韩国专利法院赢得全面胜诉为数不多的重要专利诉讼案件,本案件对三花智控电子膨胀阀及其它产品在全球的知识产权保护也具有重大意义。

Unitalen and SHIN & KIM represented Sanhua in the Korean patent litigation and won an overall victory. This is also one of the few important patent litigation cases where a Chinese company has won an overall victory in the Patent Court in Korea. This case is also of great significance to the global intellectual property protection of Sanhua's electronic expansion valves and other products.

集佳助力北京师范大学京师商标再审案件胜诉

Unitalen Client Beijing Normal University Won the Retrial Case of Trademark "JINGSHI"

案情回顾:

Brief of the case:

近日,北京市集佳律师事务所成功代理北京师范大学的京师商标撤销复审案件的二审和再审,最高人民法院裁定维持二审判决(即维持诉争商标京师法律服务上的有效注册),获得终审胜诉。

Recently, Unitalen represented Beijing Normal University in the second instance and retrial of the case of review on cancellation of the trademark "JINGSHI". The Supreme People's Court ruled to uphold the second instance judgment (that is, to maintain the valid registration of the disputed trademark "JINGSHI" in "Legal services"). Thereby Unitalen client won the final judgment.

京师商标撤三案件走向颇为曲折:商标局维持注册;商评委撤销注册;北京知识产权法院一审维持商评委的撤销裁定;北京市高级人民法院撤销一审判决,认定京师商标的使用证据足以证明其在法律服务上开展了真实有效的商业使用行为,维持京师商标注册;第三人不服二审判决向最高人民法院申请再审被驳回。

The 3-year non-use cancellation case of the trademark "JINGSHI" is quite tortuous: the Trademark Office maintained the registration; the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board (TRAB) cancelled the registration; the Beijing Intellectual Property Court upheld the TRAB's ruling in the first instance; the Beijing High People's Court revoked the first instance judgment, determined that the evidence of use of the trademark "JINGSHI" was sufficient to prove that it has been commercially applied in "Legal services" truly and effectively, and maintained the registration of the trademark "JINGSHI"; and the third party appealed to the Supreme People's Court for a retrial due to dissatisfaction with the second instance judgment, and the appeal was rejected.

典型意义:

Typical significance:

本案中,代理律师一方面深入调研了从诉争商标申请注册时的第七版《区分表》至现行有效的第十一版《区分表》中法律服务名称的演变过程,从服务目的、内容、方式、对象等多方面夯实了法律研究法律服务的下位概念这一事实,避免因区分表的变化损害商标注册人的利益;另一方面,从《民法典》角度论证了附解除条件许可合同的有效性和不违反商标权人意志的使用行为。

In this case, on the one hand, the attorney conducted an in-depth investigation on the evolution of the name of "Legal services" from the 7th edition of the Similar Goods and Services Table published when the disputed trademark was applied for registration to the currently effective 11th edition of the Table, and consolidated the fact that "Legal research" is a specific term of "Legal services" from the aspects of service purpose, content, manner, and object, etc., to prevent the interests of the trademark registrant from being harmed due to changes in the Table. On the other hand, the attorney demonstrated, from the perspective of the Civil Code, the validity of a license contract with dissolving conditions and the use that does not violate the will of the trademark holder.
