Trademark oppositions in China will be publicly accessible

china-641112_960_720The National Intellectual Property Administration (NIPA) announced its intention to published online all of its decisions regarding trademark oppositions in China. This will happen within 20 days after the relevant decision is issued.

The only option this not to happen is if the parties in the opposition proceeding require this based on not revealing confidential information contained in the decisions.

Obviously, this is another step that NIPA takes to make the trademark registration process in China more clear and transparent.
