Daily Legal and Business News from Asia (10/25/11)

  • Trademark Law of the People's Republic of China was, recently, amended. The major change concerns “bad faith filling.”  If a trademark applicant applies to register a trademark that he knows is already legally used by another person, the application may be rejected or canceled. You can also read about other changes at: “The Revised Trademark Law of China: Open for public comment,” Mondaq.
  •  China is focusing on increasing its imports in advanced technical equipment, key parts, commodities, raw materials and consumer goods. “Made for China...,” China Daily.
    • We all know that The US is trying to pass a bill aiming to encourage China to revalue its currency.  We all love reading Friedman's work and this piece will not disappoint. “Imagined in America,” The New York Times.
