As a national center of technical innovation, the Haidian District of Beijing is the home to over 10,000 hi-tech enterprises, 144 scientific institutions and 33 universities.

On April 13, the local People’s Procuratorate released the Guideline of Handling IPR-related Criminal Cases, which is the first of the category in the country.

The Guideline not only covers all the crimes stated in Section 7 of Chapter 3 of the Criminal Law with specific analysis on relevant concurrent crimes, but also selects some typical cases handled by different courts to improve readability and practicality.

The Guideline focuses on the criteria of evidence, direction of evidence collection and evidence examination to directly explain the difficult issues arising from identification of crimes in a pertinent and effective manner. 80400182410.sht
