The Judicial Yuan issued a letter on July 6, 2016, announcing that the electronic platform for online lawsuit initiation and litigation briefs delivery has been launched and that parties engaging in civil litigation before high courts, district courts and the Intellectual Property Court may choose to deliver their litigation briefs via the platform.  Where all the parties agree to use the online system, they may exchange their litigation briefs by using the platform as well.  Since the time of service of the briefs is the time the party uploads the brief onto the platform, the time require to effect service will be reduced significantly by using the platform.
