With the continuous development of innovation and the full penetration of economic and social life, the significance of strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights is no longer limited to the field of technological innovation.
At the opening ceremony of the second “Belt and Road” International Cooperation Summit Forum, President Xi Jinping pointed out in his keynote speech: “Strengthening intellectual property protection is not only a requirement for safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of domestic and foreign enterprises, but also It is an inherent requirement to promote the construction of an innovative country and promote high-quality development.”
The transformation and application of innovative achievements, the creation of a good business environment, the smooth development of international exchanges, and the protection of consumers’ legitimate rights and interests are all The intellectual property system needs to be escorted. More and more people realize that intellectual property protection has become the “rigid need” for innovation-driven development and the “standard configuration” of international trade.
There is no doubt that strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights has become an important measure that has an overall impact. Only by raising the awareness of the whole society can we better promote the development of intellectual property protection.
What are the “higher requirements” for intellectual property work?
“At present, my country is transforming from a big country in the introduction of intellectual property rights to a big country in intellectual property creation, and intellectual property work is changing from the pursuit of quantity to the improvement of quality.”
In the article, General Secretary Xi Jinping Accurately marked the historical coordinates of the current intellectual property protection work in my country.
On the one hand, “have embarked on a path of intellectual property development with Chinese characteristics, and intellectual property protection has made historic achievements.”
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, my country has issued a series of major policies, actions, and plans, implemented a strict intellectual property protection system, and continued to strengthen protection. By the end of 2020, the effective number of domestic invention patents (excluding Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) reached 2.213 million, and the number of effective registered trademarks exceeded 30 million. In 2019, the added value of patent-intensive industries nationwide reached 11.46 trillion yuan, accounting for 11.6% of GDP.
On the other hand, “we have to be sober to see the shortcomings.”
Problems such as the difficulty of supporting evidence, high costs, and low compensation still exist. High-quality development places higher requirements on the overall quality of intellectual property rights, and the efficiency of patent conversion needs to be further improved.
At present, the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has taken solid steps, entered a new stage of development, implemented new development concepts, constructed a new development pattern, and promoted high-quality development. It requires strong support for higher-quality intellectual property work.
In this regard, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out the direction for comprehensively strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights: “We must proceed from the national strategic height and the requirements of entering a new stage of development, comprehensively strengthen intellectual property protection, and promote the construction of a modern economic system. , Stimulate the innovation vitality of the whole society, and promote the construction of a new development pattern.”
