It's Crucial to Protect Your Brand in China Early

Secure Your Brand Early

China is a ‘first to file’ country which means no proof of use is required at the filing. It is especially important to trademark your brand first before someone else register it.

Marketplace and Distribution

Major online marketplaces such as Alibaba, Taobao and JD.com and distribution channels require a proof of China trademark registration.

Trademark Infringement

It's difficult to overcome a trademark infringement in China without a registered trademark. Your registered China trademark will provide a strong case before the China Trademark Office.
