Revised Trademark Law to Take Effect on Nov 1
China's revised trademark law will take effect on Nov 1.
The revised law increased the upper limit of compensations that may be imposed on trademark infringement.
It also took action toward bad faith behaviors involving trademarks, such as malicious registration of trademarks and hoarding of registered trademarks.
"A bad faith trademark application for registration for a purpose other than use shall be rejected," said the amended law, adding that trademark agencies should refuse to represent any applicant who attempts to file malicious registrations.
