On September 25, Zheng Xinjian, the Director of Civil and Administrative Procurator's Office of Supreme People's Procuratorate, said, after the intellectual property courts are launched in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, the prosecutorial organ would determine the corresponding prosecutor to assume legal responsibilities of supervision.
On August 31 this year, the NPC Standing Committee adopted the decision on the establishment of intellectual property court in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. According to the decision, along with the establishment of specialized courts for intellectual property, Supreme Procuratorate will determine the corresponding procurator to strengthen its legal supervision.
According to the preliminary plan of Supreme Procuratorate, Beijing and Shanghai Municipal People's Procuratorate will determine their branches in the location of intellectual property courts for legal supervision of civil and administrative proceedings in the courts; Guangdong Provincial People's Procuratorate will determine Guangzhou Municipal People's Procuratorate to implement legal supervision of the intellectual property court in Guangzhou.
It is reported that, in the above corresponding prosecutorial authorities, a special organization will be set up, with professional prosecutors to conduct legal supervision of intellectual property litigations. The Supreme People's Procuratorate and procuratorates at higher-level will strengthen the standardization and guidance of legal supervision of intellectual property litigations, actively and steadily carrying out prosecutions for intellectual property.
