In an announcement made at a news conference on 13 April, the Beijing court published 10 examples of IP cases in English to demonstrate its plans to be more transparent.
"We have had the idea to supply English versions for some time, but due to the limited number of English speakers in the court, the first batch of cases could not been issued until now," said Pan Wei, assistant to the court's IP tribunal chief judge.
"We also want both Chinese and foreigners to understand our IP case hearings and keep our work transparent.”
Beijing courts heard 13,939 IP cases last year, an increase of 24 percent from 2014.
According to the court’s figures, 506 concerned patents, while 1,210 were brand infringement cases and 10,935 related to copyright.
