With more and more Chinese becoming aware of the importance of intellectual property rights protection, there sees an increasing number of trademark registration in China. The trademark registration certificate is issued by the China State Administration for Industry and Commerce (AIC) Trademark Office.

Enterprises incorporated outside of China can also apply for a trademark in China and there are many that choose to do so, either because they plan to expand into China in the future, or for legal protection from copy cats.

The validity period of this certificate is 10 years, so during this period other companies cannot use the registered trademark for business. If a company wants to continue using their registered trademark after the expiration date, they will have to apply for an extension.
