New SPC Guidance on Appointments to and Jurisdiction of Specialized IP Courts

There have been two documents released recently on specialized IP courts. One is the “Guiding Opinion of the Supreme Peoples Court on on the Work of Choosing Judges Rules for the IP Courts” (Provisional) 知识产权法院法官选任工作指导意见(试行) and the other is the  “Regulation of the SPC on Jurisdiction of Cases of the Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou IP Courts” 《最高人民法院关于北京、上海、广州知识产权法院案件管辖的规定》.

I welcome commentary and analysis on these two.
