“China needs an appellate court for Intellectual Property cases as it has become a major country for international patents and trademarks registration. The number of IP cases heard by Chinese courts every year is far beyond the capacity of the existing courts and their staffs. The situation necessitates the establishment of a specialized court for second instance trial of IP cases. When the majority of IP cases for retrial or second instance trial are left for the appellate court, the Supreme People's Court may focus its energy on the most important ones and the formulation of guidelines for adjudication.”-- Jiang Zhipei, former chief justice of the IP Tribunal of the Supreme People's Court
“Intellectual property does not mean a legal right alone. It is rather a competition instrument and business strategy that help enterprises enrich their technological resources, sharpen their competitive edge and increase their profits.”-- Yuan Zhenfu, deputy president of Shanghai Intellectual Property Institute
“Innovation is the driving force behind an enterprise's progress, and the source of a nation's prosperity. China needs a zero-tolerance attitude toward infringement of copyright and other intellectual property rights. It is necessary to create an IP-friendly environment to facilitate enterprises’ R&D investments, and develop a new management mode for Intellectual Property.”-- Jun Ge, executive director of Intel China
“China is now a power in science and technology, but only 25 percent of its research results are transferred, and less than 5 percent are put to industrial exploitation. This is a rather backward situation compared to the advanced countries.”-- Nalan Yixiu, Beijing Guoxin Xingye Auction Co Ltd.
