IP disputes dropped by 20.6 percent to 479 at the latest China Import and Export Fair in the provincial capital Guangzhou, which ran from mid-April to early May. The drop was partly due to the province's IP-driven growth campaign, according to local authorities. Most of the disputes centered around home appliances, motorcycles and kitchenware. Of the more than 23,000 exhibitors at the event, 326 were found to be involved in IP infringement.
