Three New Draft JI’s

On June 10 (Beijing time), the Supreme People’s Court published three new draft judicial interpretations (JI’s) for public comment.   Comments are due by July 27, 2020.

The three draft judicial interpretations are: “Interpretation on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Civil Cases Infringing on Trade Secret Infringements (Draft for Comment)” (关于审理侵犯商业秘密纠纷民事案件应用法律若干问题的解释(征求意见稿), “Reply on Issues Concerning the Application of Laws Related to Infringement Disputes Concerning Internet Intellectual Property (Draft for Comment)” (关于涉网络知识产权侵权纠纷有关法律适用问题的批复(征求意见稿), and Guiding Opinions on Adjudication of IPR Disputes in Cases Involving E-Commerce Platforms  (Draft for Comment)” (关于审理涉电子商务平台知识产权纠纷案件的指导意见(征求意见稿)).

 This draft trade secret JI has been released in perfect time to be discussed at the webinar on June 10 (Pacific Standard Time)  hosted by Berkeley Law on trade secret protection in China.  I will be speaking along with James Pooley, Jack Chang (QBPC), and Jerry Xia (Anjie Law Firm).  Registration for this single event in the series is here.   Thanks to Jack Chang for pointing out these new draft JI’s to me!        

Here is a machine translation of the trade secret JI.

Update of July 6, 2020: here is an unofficial translation prepared by USPTO of the .trade secret JI.
