                  三、知識產權保護長效機制建設不斷深化

                  (一)完善知識產權保護協作機制。

                  市知識產權局與市商務委、市工商局、市版權局、市質監局、天津海關等部門建立知識產權保護協作長◤效機制,研究、會商全市知識產權保護工作。市□ 知識產權局與市高級法院積極落實協作機制,開展聯合調解、典型案例分■析、專業問題研討,要事△會商基本形成常態化。市對外開放辦、市外包辦組織策劃知識產權保護服務月活動。市工商局聯絡國資委、經信委、商務委、農委等部門,進行商標法律法規培訓,推動企業商標工作。註重與法院、知識產權、公安、海關等部門的協調,綜合運用行政和司法手段,加強了對商標專用權的●保護工作。市版權局與市通信管理局聯合制定了宣傳、檢查、查找大案要案線索等行動方案,各大網站認真開展自查自糾工作,積極預防和杜絕網絡侵權行為發生。

                  四、知識產權司法保護不斷加強

                  (一)不斷加大刑事打擊力度。

                  1、開展專項行動。

                  2011年,全市公安系統嚴厲打擊侵犯知識產權犯罪,開展“雙打”、“亮劍”等專項行動,不斷加大打擊力度≡,破獲各類侵犯知識產權犯罪案件戰果超過往年8倍,圓滿完成2011年知識產權戰略工作刑事打擊任務,有效遏制了侵犯知識產權違法犯罪活動。全年共破獲侵犯知識產權類犯罪案件831起(其中涉案金額100萬元以上大案43起,涉案金額500萬元以∑ 上特大案件1起);涉案總價值2.23億元;打掉犯罪㊣團夥419個;搗毀生產、儲存侵權產品窩點1735個;打擊傳播盜版作品的互聯網站4個;抓獲犯罪嫌疑人1992名;繳獲盜版、侵權商品數量243.7萬件(個、套)。偵破對非洲出口假冒偽劣和侵犯知識產權商品犯罪案件2起——柏泰瑞康、納瑞德公司利用互聯網銷售假冒註冊商標的商品案,查獲假冒“SKF”等品牌軸承81815套,涉案金額1380余萬元。

                  2、部門配合制度化,形成打擊合力。

                  全市公安系統履行打擊侵權犯罪職責時,不斷加強□公安機關與各行政執法部門的協作會商工作。2011年的執法◢實踐中,全市各級公安機關與行政執法部門結合天津市的侵犯知識產權犯罪行為現狀,積極開展處際之間的文件會簽,將公安機關與行政執法單位的配合及要求以制度的形式固定下來,使全市公安機關與行政執法單位的協作進一步制度化、專業化、法律化。在“兩法銜接”的框架內,切實落實公安機關對行政執法部門處理的行政案件的提前介入制度,準確╳把握案件定性,建立健全案件線索移交的“綠色通道”,當行政案件轉化為刑事案件後,行政執法機關則協助公安機關完∮成證據收集等相關工作,互相配合形成高效、務實、廣泛的打擊犯罪合力。

                  3、廣泛應用新型技戰法。

                  針對當前侵犯知識產權類案件犯罪分子化整為零、分散隱蔽的作案手法,為達到有效打擊犯罪的目的,全市公安系統偵查破案中廣泛應用各警種高度配合、集團作戰、組織集群戰役等多種新型作戰技法。在案♂件的偵辦工作中,各部門警種交叉配合,各守其責,以集群戰役帶動案件偵破率的優勢在全市公安機關案件偵辦工作中得以充分發揮,各參戰公安機關互相之間聯系密切,形成了完整的犯罪打擊網絡,徹底覆蓋了以前靠單一警種作戰所不能覆蓋的死角,各參戰警種之間的配合程度也空前提高,成為全面、快速、準確打擊侵犯知識產權犯罪★團夥的有效利器。

                  (二)加大對知識產權刑事司法保護力度。

                  1、依法開展知識產權類案件批捕與起訴工作。

                  2011年,天津市各級檢察機關在轉變經濟方式、調整經濟結構工作中,充分發揮檢察職能作用,強化工作措施,依法打擊各類侵犯知識產權犯罪,全年共受理侵犯知識產權類犯罪審查逮捕案件28件42人,批準逮捕27件37人,其中批捕涉嫌假冒註冊商標罪12件18人,銷售假冒註冊商標的商品罪6件9人,非法制造、銷售非法制造的註冊商標標識罪4件5人,侵犯著作權罪2件2人,侵犯商業秘密罪3件3人。各級檢察機關公訴部門共受〓理該類犯罪36件62人,提起公訴25件49人,其中提起公訴涉嫌假冒註冊商標罪16件32人,銷售假冒註冊商標的商品罪2件8人,非法制造、銷售非法制造的註冊商標標識罪4件5人,侵犯著作權罪1件2人,侵犯商業秘密罪2件2人。

                  2、以“專案督辦”與“專案辦理”兩項機制保障打擊力度和案件質量。

                  各級檢察機關積極完善兩項機制確保知識產權類刑事案件辦案質量。一是完善專案督辦機制,高檢院和新聞出∑版總署等單位將南開區一侵犯著作權案作為全國雙打督辦案件,天津市檢察院將武清區徐某某等四人假冒註冊商標案作為天津市檢察院掛牌督辦案件等,共督辦重大復雜案件6件,通過專案督辦加強跟蹤指導,有力地打擊了侵犯知識產權犯罪活動;二是完善專案辦理機制,各級檢察機關組織專人對知識產權犯罪進行專門研究,實行類案專辦,不斷提升辦案隊伍的辦案能力和水平,建立知識產權案件研討和指導機制,準確界定案件性質和涉嫌罪名,提前←介入指導案件偵查,把握逮捕尺度,針對知識產權案件專業性強、日趨隱蔽復雜的特點,建立知識產權刑事法律保護理論研究、相關法律業務培訓、案件咨詢和指導機制,切實解決實踐中知識產權刑事司法保護的疑〗難困惑。

                  3、完善“兩法銜接”,促進專項監督工作有效開展。

                  各級●檢察機關充分發揮監督職能,強化行政執法與刑事司法無縫銜接制度建設,一是對辦理侵犯知識產權犯罪案件中存在的有案㊣不送、有案不立、有罪不糾、以罰代刑的情況及時予以監督、糾正,把打擊侵犯知識產權類犯罪作為專項監督活動的重點,切實加強了對行政執法機關移送涉嫌犯罪案件的監督;二是落實與行政執法部門的聯席制度,加強溝通與@交流,細化、完善知識產權侵權案件涉嫌犯罪移送刑事司法機關處理的條件,尤其是對各類知△識產權案件的證據標準、案件移送標準形成統一認識;三是整合信息〒資源,推動構建“兩法銜接”橋梁,即網上信息共享平臺。

                  (三)司法保護成果顯著。

                  1、依法公正審理知識產權案件。

                  全市法院系統充分發揮刑事、行政和民事審判職能,依法審理知識產權案件,嚴懲各類侵犯知識產權犯罪,依法監督和維護行政機關履行職責,加大司法保護〗力度,加重惡意☆侵權、重復侵權、規模化侵權的賠償責任,有效遏制了各種侵權行為,提高了司法⊙保護的整體效能。全年各級法院依法審結各類一審知識產權民事案件504件,二審知識產權案件100 件。在一審案件中,著作權糾紛271件,占53.8%;專利權糾紛109件,占21.6%;商標◥權糾紛101件,占20%;技術合同及其他糾紛23件,占4.6%。民事案件調解或撤訴率68%,自∩動履行率為100%。審結各類涉知識產權一審刑事案件18件,判決發生※法律效力16件32人,全部給予刑事處罰。主要罪名包括假冒註冊商標罪、假冒銷售註冊商標的商品罪、侵犯著作權罪、侵犯商業秘密罪。

                  2、創新管理,不斷提高知識產權審判質量和效率。

                  通過建立大案要案報告制度、關聯案件協調制度、法律適用疑難問題研討調研制度等,全↘面提高知識產權審判水平,切實體現司法審判定紛止爭的終局作用,最大限度地維護人民群眾的創新權益,實現知識產權領域的公☆平正義。同時,認真貫徹“調解優先、調判結合”原則,積極化解知識產權領域的矛盾糾紛。結合知識產權案件特點,遵循有利自主創新和科技進步,有利協調利益關系和促進文化發展繁榮的調解思路,創新調解方法,主動加強與知識產權行政管理部》門和行業協會的配合,探索共同調解制度,取得了較好的訴訟調解效果。一年來,依法調解了(法國)伯納德股份有限公司與伯納德Ψ (天津)儀表技術有限公司的侵害商標權及不正當競爭糾紛案、株式會社島野與寧波力盟工業有限公司的侵害發明專利權案等影響較大案件,實現了法律效果與社會效果有機統一。通過公開審判、公布典型案例、裁判文書上網等多種方式,以公開促公正,以公正贏▃公信。圍繞天津市重點工作和審判難點先後開展了網絡著作權保護、卡拉OK經營者↘著作權侵權、推進實施天津市商標戰略、“老字號”企業與知名企業商標權保護等系列重點調研活動,調研成果得到及時應用,不僅解決了審判難題,而且有效地服務於天津企業知識產權工作。

                  3、加強多ξ部門協作,積極開展司法建議工作。

                  全市法院系統加強與相關單位在知識產權√執法程序中的配合,實現司法保護與行政保護的優勢互補和良性〖互動,形成了打擊侵犯知識產權犯罪的合力。審結網吧侵犯網絡著作權系列案件與侵害商標專用權糾紛案件後,向有關文化管理部門與企業發出司法建議書,就提高知識□產權保護意識提出司法建議。

                  五、不斷完善知識產權文化環境建設

                  (一)大力營造“雙打”聲勢。

                Tianjin Leading Group Office of Intellectual Property Strategy
                 (April, 2012)

                  2011 served as a start for the Twelfth “Five-Year Plan”. In accordance with the series of important instructions by General Secretary Hu Jintao concerning Tianjin’s work, Tianjin’s intellectual property rights protection has been based on the further implementation of the Scientific Outlook on Development and earnestly carrying out the general arrangement of Tianjin municipal party committee and the municipal government. With Tianjin Intellectual Property Strategy thoroughly carried out, outstanding achievements have been made in the following aspects: the construction of Tianjin’s Intellectual Property Rights Protection system, the special action of combating IPR infringement and producing and selling counterfeit and shoddy goods, administrative protection and judicial protection, exploring the establishment of long-term mechanism for IPR protection and creating a legal environment for IPR protection. As a result, effective and strong guarantee has been provided for accelerating the alteration of economic growth pattern, deepening the development and opening up of Binhai New Area, and speeding up the construction of the innovative city.

                  I. System construction of IPR policies and laws breaks new ground

                  The Tianjin municipal party committee and the municipal government attached great importance to IPR protection. In November, 2011, the Eleventh Plenary Session of the Ninth Tianjin Committee of CPC approved the Tianjin Municipal Party Committee’s Opinions on Implementing “the Party Central Committee’s Resolution on Major Issues Regarding Deepening Cultural Restructuring and Promoting the Great Development and Flourishing of Socialist Culture”, which pointed out that intellectual property rights protection should be strengthened and that the legitimate rights and interests of copyright holders should be safeguarded.

                  The municipal government promulgated the “12th Five-Year Plan” on Tianjin’s Intellectual Property Rights, which has become the only provincial level key planning for intellectual property rights nationwide. The Three-Year Plan (2010-2012) for the Trademark Development in Tianjin has advanced steadily. The Regulations on the Promotion and Protection of the Patent in Tianjin has been promulgated since April 1st, realizing the “zero” breakthrough in local IPR-related legislation in Tianjin. “The Regulations” raised the key elements in the Outline of Tianjin Intellectual Property Strategy to the local legislative level in order to provide protection, systemically specifying the whole process involving patent creation, application, protection, management, legal liability and support measures with distinguishing features of Tianjin. The 2011 Application Standard for Tianjin Brand-Name Products and Tianjin’s “12th Five-Year” Plan of the Implementation of Brand-Name Strategy and the Catalogue for the Cultivation and Guidance of Tianjin Brand-Name Products (2011-2015) was issued. In addition, Selection and Management Measures of Cultural Industry Model Parks in Tianjin was formulated with the second batch of cultural industry model bases nominated and commended. Opinions on the Implementation of Strengthening the IPR Judicial Protection to Promote the Accelerated Alteration of Economic Growth Pattern was formulated and issued, in which nine measures were definitely adopted to provide powerful legislative guarantee and support for accelerating the alteration of economic growth pattern. Suggestions on the trial guidance concerning applicable laws in cases related to information network transmission right protection, trade secret protection, and patent and trademarks were developed in succession, as a result of which, the guidance of IPR trials was reinforced and the standardization of IPR trials was improved.

                  II. Administrative duties are performed according to law and law enforcement and protection are intensified

                  In 2011, taking the special action of combating IPR infringement and producing and selling counterfeit and shoddy goods (hereinafter referred to as “double fights”) as an opportunity, the municipal government of Tianjin continuously made extensive efforts to promote law enforcement. The Municipal Commission of Commerce and the Municipal Intellectual Property Bureau formed a leading group office for the “double fights” together with the Municipal Industrial and Commercial Bureau, the Municipal Copyright Bureau, and the Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau for the purpose of carrying out in depth the “double fights” throughout the city. During the special action, the deployed law enforcement officers totaled over 120,000; more than 10,000 special inspections of various kinds were carried out; 1,637 cases of various categories were placed on file for investigation and prosecution involving a total sum of 1.728 billion yuan. Furthermore, 457 dens were destroyed and more than 300,000 items were confiscated, leading to the continuous purification of market environment and opening up a new prospect in the IPR law enforcement and protection in Tianjin.

                  1. Unceasingly strengthening patent administrative law enforcement.

                  (1). extensively unfolding law enforcement actions.

                  A number of law enforcement actions were organized such as 4.26-5.26 centralized-law-enforcement Month; besides, as many as 23 centralized rectifying actions were carried out during the “double fights”. A total number of 523 patent administrative law enforcement personnel on the municipal and district levels were deployed; they inspected 341 places of business of various types, checking patent marking goods amounting to 207,000 pieces. A special action of IPR protection entitled “celebrating the two festivals, fighting against counterfeit patent and protecting patent commodities” was launched in Tianjin, which focused on consolidating achievements of the “double fights” and promoting innovation and development. Efforts were aimed at combating infringement, and acts of counterfeit patent and patent fraud, as a result of which, Tianjin’s market economic order was regulated and the legitimate rights and interests of right holders were secured. In the past year, a total of 26 patent administrative cases and 16 cases of patent counterfeiting were received in Tianjin.

                  (2). solidly carrying out IPR protection for exhibitions

                  25 large exhibitions were stationed including the 11th North China International Cycle Show and the 18th Investment and Trade Fair in Tianjin, China, during which IPR safeguarding and complaint workstations were posted to accept on-site complaint, consultation as well as carrying out law enforcement inspection. Over 3,000 consultants were received and nearly 10,000 copies of IPR publicity materials were handed out. All these won acclaim from the exhibitors and the public alike, and achieved good social effects.

                  2. Severely cracking down on trademark infringement.

                  In 2011, the Municipality’s industrial and commercial system combined their own functions to promote the implementation of IPR strategy. They strictly enforced the law, thus making some progress. All the year round a total of 566 illegal trademark cases were investigated and dealt with, of which 5 cases were common criminal acts, 446 trademark violation cases and the rest 115 were foreign related cases. All these cases involved a sum total of 7.872 million yuan with a fine of 4.06 million yuan. 42,000 pieces of infringing goods and 11,000 pieces of trademarks were confiscated and destroyed. Assistance was rendered to the determination of right ownership of well-known and famous trademarks in Tianjin so as to promote Tianjin’s economic and social development. The past year has witnessed the successful assistance for 15 enterprises including Tianjin Seagull Group Co., Ltd. and Darentang Pharmacy in settling trademark disputes, objection and approval of the right ownership concerning registered cases.

                  3. Effectively regulating the cultural market order to further the investigation and persecution of infringement and piracy.

                  (1). identifying priorities and intensifying copyright protection.
                In 2011, together with the Municipal Copyright Bureau and the Municipal General Team of Cultural Market Administrative Law Enforcement, the Municipal Office of Eliminating Pornography and Illegal Publications took the action of “double fights” as an opportunity to focus on checking and confiscating pirated bestsellers, reference books, textbooks, supplementary publications, film and music audio-visual products and computer software. What was enhanced was routine supervision of the fabrication, production, wholesale, retail, rental and the screening units of publications, resolutely banning selling pirated and illegal publications by itinerant traders, stalls and operators without license. A number of special inspections were carried out involving the printing enterprises and the publication markets in the Municipality’s administrative region. Dispatched law enforcement officers throughout the year topped 24,800, who checked 13,489 publications markets and 5,168 printing and copying businesses. As a result, they closed down 202 publication markets, shops, stalls, or stores that were illegal or broke the rules; and they confiscated over 320,000 (copies of) illegal publications.

                  (2). unfolding the 2011 special action of combating online infringement and piracy.
                The Municipal General Team of Cultural Market Administrative Law Enforcement led efforts against online infringement and piracy in the fields of software, films, music, text as well as online shopping. They also actively carried out market control over pre-installed pirated software in the computer and intensified market supervision of key software products. Stress was laid on investigating and dealing with illegal acts such as unauthorized dissemination of film and television works, selling products that violated copyright through e-commerce platform, and providing internet access, server hosting, network storage space, collecting fees on his/ her behalf and settlement services for the infringers to seek profit. Industry associations were initiated to play an active role in helping to combat infringement and piracy as well as safeguarding market order. In addition, the active monitoring of video websites and mobile media was effectively promoted.

                  (3). vigorously promoting the software legalization.
                The Municipal Copyright Bureau acted as a lead to organize and propel the special inspection of copyrighted software in the Municipal government authorities. An inspection team was established entitled the Municipal Government Authorities’ use of legitimate software and a Special Inspection Program for the Municipal Government Authorities to Use Legitimate Software was prepared. In addition, a mobilization meeting was organized concerning the use of copyrighted software in the Municipal government authorities; training was organized aiming at district and county government agencies to use legitimate software. Supervision and inspection were carried out on 50 municipal government agencies concerning their self-examination, correction and rectification work as well as on government agencies in 16 districts or counties and administrative committees of Tanggu, Hangu and Dagang involving their rectification of using legitimate software.

                  (4). further developing intangible cultural heritage protection.
                The production skill of Tianjin Goubuli stuffed bun and other four projects were selected for the third batch of National Intangible Cultural Heritage List, achieving zero breakthrough in traditional medicine projects. 72 candidates were rated as the second batch of municipal heritage heritors. 10 protection units were named as Tianjin Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection and Demonstration Base. Collecting and recording plans were started for the national heritage heritors and endangered projects. An Illustrated List of the Second Batch of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Tianjin was edited and published. Furthermore, a series of activities were initiated including “Passing the torch - Tianjin Intangible Cultural Heritage Performances on the Same Stage by Mentors and Disciples Together” and “Intangible Cultural Heritage on Campus”. The publicity and interpretation of Intangible Cultural Heritage Act were carried out, setting off an upsurge of paying attention to cultural heritage protection in the whole society.

                  4. Enhancing the protection of geographical mark products and research of
                technical barrier measures.

                  In 2011, after cultivation and declaration by the Municipal Quality Supervision System, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (AQSIQ) noticed the approval to officially implement the protection of geographical mark products for “Lutaichun liquor” of Ninghe County; thus the total number of geographical mark products struck 10. Special supervision and inspection were carried out on the protection of geographical mark products, during which 243 law enforcement personnel were dispatched and 50 enterprises underwent inspection. The execution of specific standard for geographical mark products by the enterprises also received checking. The printing, registration and usage systems of geographical marks were perfected. In addition, the annual usage of geographical marks by the enterprises was catalogued and the qualification of the printing companies was registered. During the inspection process, a case involving the fraudulent use of specific mark of the geographical mark product—“Shanxi Vinegar” was exposed and in collaboration with Shaanxi Provincial Quality Supervision Bureau the case was investigated and dealt with. Tianjin Standard Information Service web site created a “technical trade barrier warning platform”, throughout the year publishing nearly 1,800 circulars by the European Union, the United States, Japan and other developed countries, providing 24 cases in which our country was blocked because of technical barriers, and releasing 262 pieces of information in relation to WTO. Tianjin Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, together with International Inspection and Quarantine Standard and Technical Regulation Research Center of AQSIQ, the Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau, Tianjin WTO Enquiry Service Centre, signed a Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement on Technical Trade Measures to develop cooperation when tackling foreign technical trade measures.

                  5. Facilitating the protection of new plant varieties with special actions.
                On the basis of the special action aiming at cracking down on manufacturing and selling fake and inferior seeds and violations of new plant varieties, Tianjin Municipal Commission of Rural Affairs focused on corn and cotton varieties, mainly against malicious and repeated violations of others’ variety rights, group violation, and the “deck” behavior and particularly with the granting of production license and the seed market as the core to strengthen the supervision of the production source. Throughout the year more than 270 law enforcement personnel on seed inspection were dispatched and 35 or more law enforcement trips by vehicles were conducted, involving 43 seed companies or seed dealer outlets in nine districts of Tianjin. 247 seed tags underwent checks and 47 got sampling, of which 42 belonged to crop varieties. And 20 samples received authenticity tests. The activity of Seed Law Enforcement Year was initiated to constantly maintain a high pressure situation for resolutely cracking down on violations. Consequently, the seed market was purified and contribution was made for the realization of Tianjin’s plenteous yield and increased revenue in agricultural production.

                  6. Tianjin Customs making fruitful efforts in IPR protection.

                  Tianjin Customs has taken various measures to actively carry out IPR protection. Throughout the year Tianjin Customs investigated and seized a total of 149 cases of IPR infringement, covering 1,607 batches. The total value involved in these cases was worth 15,327,200 yuan. A total of 1.707 million pieces of goods or articles were involved. 68 domestic and foreign well-known trademark rights including Anta (China) Co., Ltd. and other enterprises were safeguarded. Tianjin Customs, at the same time, paid close attention to major cases of infringement. In the past year it investigated and seized eight cases with the value of infringing goods above 200,000 yuan and under 400,000; seven cases with the value of the goods in excess of 400,000 yuan and under 800,000; two cases with the value of the goods above one million yuan.

                  III.The construction of the long-term mechanism of IPR protection is constantly deepened.

                  1. Improving the IPR protection coordination mechanism.

                  In conjunction with the Municipal Commission of Commerce, the Municipal Industrial and Commercial Bureau, the Municipal Copyright Bureau, the Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau and Tianjin Customs, the Municipal Intellectual Property Bureau established a long-term coordination mechanism of IPR protection to conduct research and consultation of IPR protection work in Tianjin. The Municipal Intellectual Property Bureau and the Superior Court actively implemented the coordination mechanism to conduct joint mediation, typical case studies, seminars on professional issues, thus consultation of events becoming normalized in the main. The Municipal Office of Opening up and the Municipal Outsourcing Office organized and planned the activity of “IPR Protection Service Month”. The Municipal Industrial and Commercial Bureau, in collaboration with the Municipal State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, Tianjin Economic and Information Technology Commission, Tianjin Commission of Commerce, and Tianjin Municipal Commission of Rural Affairs provided training on trademark laws and regulations, promoting trademark-related work in enterprises. Stress was also laid on coordination with the courts, the Municipal Intellectual Property Bureau, the Municipal Public Security Bureau and Tianjin Customs to make comprehensive use of administrative and judicial means in order to strengthen the protection of trademark rights. The Municipal Copyright Bureau and the Municipal Communication Administration Bureau jointly developed action programs covering the publicity, inspection and detecting clues for major cases. The major web sites conscientiously carried out self-checking and correcting, actively preventing or putting an end to network infringement acts.

                  2. Vigorously carrying out IPR safeguarding aid.

                  12330 IPR safeguarding aid platform that was characterized by artificial, online and automatic services in one system was perfected to provide IPR protection services including IPR consultation, office reports and complaints as well as rights maintenance aid.  The “Mine Clearance” action was started for IPR issues in the medium-sized and small technical enterprises. One-on-one IPR safeguarding and consultative services were offered to 40 enterprise with large projects, medium-sized and small technical enterprises and commercial enterprises that were in need of rights maintenance assistance such as Tianjin Weijie Technology Co., Ltd. IPR safeguarding and consultative services were rendered for over 80 units including Tianjin University and the Cycling Association. Throughout the year, the Tianjin Aid Center for Maintaining Intellectual Property Rights altogether received and dealt with various kinds of reports, complaints and consultation topping 1195 pieces, in addition to which the Center accepted and transmitted 14 cases.

                  3. Giving full scope to the mechanism and concentrating efforts on major cases and focal point of the work.

                  In conjunction with the Municipal General Team of Cultural Market Administrative Law Enforcement, the Municipal Copyright Bureau collaborated with the Municipal Public Security Bureau to organize timely identification of the allegedly infringing audiovisual products, thus playing an important role in the Investigation and settling of one of the key cases of copyright infringement –the case of “He Zhenyu sale of pirated discs”. Therefore, an effective mechanism of administrative law enforcement and criminal judicature took shape for case investigation and prosecution. The Municipal Copyright Bureau and the Municipal Public Security Bureau jointly held the 2011 Conference on Internet Information Security, during which the significance of combating online infringement was explained and publicized; the investigation and prosecution of online infringement cases were briefed and informants' hot-line telephone number was announced. A meeting participated by the heads of major websites in Tianjin was convened to emphasize the heavy blow on online infringement and piracy, taking a strong stance against infringement acts of films and TV plays, the fraudulent acts of selling IPR infringing goods, counterfeit and shoddy products by websites and TV networks, and the playing of pirated programs by audio-visual program service websites. Meanwhile, careful reviews were arranged by appointed personnel concerning “music websites” and “film website”, aiming at 47 websites that allowed the downloading of “Let the bullets fly” and “You Are the One 2” to find the IP address.

                  IV.The IPR judicial protection is ceaselessly reinforced.

                  1. Continuously pressing on with efforts for criminal crackdown.

                  (1). initiating special actions.

                  The year 2011 saw the ruthless blow on IPR infringement by the Municipal Public Security system, which initiated the special actions such as “Double Fights” and “Sword Draw”. Efforts were intensified to uncover various kinds of IPR infringement cases, delivering a successful outcome that was 8 times more than that of the previous year. Consequently, the criminal strike mission of the 2011 IPR strategic work was satisfactorily completed, effectively curbing criminal and IPR infringement acts. Altogether 831 IPR infringement cases were solved in the past year, of which 43 major cases involved more than 1 million rmb yuan; one serious case involved amount of over 5 million yuan. The total amount involved in the lawsuits was 223,000,000 rmb yuan. The Bureau destroyed 419 criminal gangs and 1735 production or storage dens for infringing products; 4 websites that spread pirated works were also stricken. As a result, 1992 suspects were caught and 2.437 million pieces (sets) of pirated or infringing goods were seized. Two criminal cases of exporting to Africa the counterfeit and shoddy goods as well as IPR infringing goods were uncovered—Tianjin Botairuikang Bearing International Trade co., Ltd. and Tianjin Naruide Imported bearing co., Ltd. These two companies used internet to sell counterfeit registered trademark products. 81,815 sets of counterfeit “SKF” brand bearings were seized involving a total amount of over 13.8 million rmb yuan.

                  (2). institutionalizing the coordination between departments to create a joint crack-down force.

                  In their performance of duties concerning combating IPR infringement crimes, the Municipal Public Security system also strengthened the coordination and consultation system with other administrative law enforcement departments. In the law enforcement process of the past year, on the basis of the status quo of IPR infringement crimes in Tianjin, the public security organs at all levels and administrative law enforcement departments vigorously conducted cross-signing of documents at office levels. By so doing, the coordination between the public security organs and administrative law enforcement units as well as their requirements were fixed as a system, going a step further in the institutionalization, specialization and legalization of the collaboration of the municipal public security organs and administrative law enforcement units. Within the framework of “the convergence of law enforcement and criminal justice”, the early intervention system of public security organs with administrative cases handled by the administrative law enforcement departments was earnestly implemented so as to accurately determine the nature of cases and to establish and improve the “green channel” for transferring the clues of cases. After the transformation of administrative cases for criminal cases, the administrative law enforcement agencies then assisted the public security organs to complete the collection of evidence and other related work. Such coordination created an efficient, practical, and extensive joint crack-down force.

                  (3). extensively applying new fighting techniques.

                  In the light of the current modus operandi of IPR infringement criminals that were characterized by breaking up into parts, being scattered and hidden, the Municipal Public Security system widely employed many new fighting techniques such as full cooperation of police in different duties, group fight and organizing clustered campaigns in case investigations in order to accomplish the purpose of effectively combating crimes. During the investigation process of cases, police in different duties from various departments cross collaborated and performed their respective duties. Making full use of the advantage of driving case detection rate with clustered campaigns in Tianjin’s public security system’s case investigations, the public security organs in the campaigns were in close touch with each other and formed an integrated network against crime. Consequently, the dead angle that had been left with previous single-type police operations was completely covered; in addition, cooperation between police in different duties was improved to an unprecedented level during combat, thus becoming an effective weapon of fighting against IPR infringement gangs in a comprehensive, fast and accurate manner.

                  2. Stepping up efforts to offer IPR criminal judicial protection.

                  (1). arresting and prosecuting IPR related cases in accordance with the law.

                  In 2011, the municipal all-level procuratorial organs brought their procuratorial duty into full play to strengthen their measures for working and crack down on IPR infringement crimes according to the law during the alteration of economic growth pattern and economic restructuring. The Annual number of accepted cases to be examined for arrest totaled 28, involving 42 persons. 27 cases involving 37 people were approved for arrest, of which 12 cases and 18 people came under suspicion of counterfeiting registered trademarks; 6 cases and 9 people were arrested for selling goods of counterfeit registered trademarks; 4 cases and 5 people for illegally manufacturing and selling illegally manufactured marks of registered trademark; 2 cases and 2 people for copyright infringement; and 3 cases with 3 people for infringement of commercial confidentiality. The public prosecution departments of all-level procuratorial organs altogether accepted 36 such crimes and 62 people and initiated public prosecutions of 25 cases and 49 people, of which 16 cases and 32 people were prosecuted for counterfeiting registered trademarks, 2 cases and 8 people for selling goods of counterfeit registered trademarks, 4 cases and 5 people for illegally manufacturing and selling illegally manufactured marks of registered trademark, 1 case and 2 people for copyright infringement; and 2 cases with 2 people for infringement of commercial confidentiality.

                  (2). Guaranteeing the crackdown and quality of cases with the two mechanisms of supervising the special case and handling the special case.

                  The all-level procuratorial organs actively improved the two mechanisms to guarantee the quality of IPR related criminal case investigations. The first was the perfection of the mechanism—supervising the special case. The Supreme People’s Procuratorate and the State Press and Publication Administration took a case of copyright infringement in Nankai district as a national supervising case during the “double fights”; what was more, the Municipal Procuratorate took Xu XX and other three people’ crime of counterfeiting registered trademark in Wuqing district as the Municipal Procuratorate listed supervising case; a total of 6 major and serious cases were supervised in this manner. With the mechanism of supervising the special case, the tracking guidance was thus reinforced, strongly striking the IPR infringement crimes. The second was the improvement of the mechanism—handling the special case. The all-level procuratorial organs assigned special personnel to conduct specialized research on IPR crimes in order to handle similar cases in a specialized way. The ability and level of the case-handling team were continuously improved. Furthermore, the mechanism of discussion and guidance of IPR related cases was established for the purpose of accurately determining the nature of the case and charges suspected. Early intervention was introduced to guide case investigation and to grasp the arrest scale. On the basis of IPR case features that were highly professional as well as increasingly hidden and complex, theoretical study of IPR criminal law protection, training on the relevant laws, case consultation and guidance mechanisms were set up or initiated to effectively solve the practical problems or confusion concerning IPR criminal judicial protection.

                  (3). completing “the convergence of law enforcement and criminal justice” to promote the effective carrying out of special supervision.

                  Making full use of their supervision function, the all-level procuratorial organs strengthened the construction of seamless convergence system of administrative law enforcement and criminal justice: the first was to promptly supervise and rectify the following phenomena in handling IPR infringement cases, such as refusing to transfer  and register existing cases, refusing to investigate offenses, and replacing punishments with fines. In the special supervision, the crack down on IPR infringement was treated as a key issue, thus earnestly strengthening the supervision over administrative law enforcement agencies involving their transfer of cases under suspicion of crimes. The second was to implement the joint system with administrative law enforcement agencies so as to enhance communication and exchanges and to refine and improve conditions for the transfer of IPR infringement cases under suspicion of crimes to criminal justice processing. In particular, a common understanding concerning evidence standards of various types of IPR cases, case transferring standards was reached. The third was the integration of information resources, promoting the construction of the bridge—“the convergence of law enforcement and criminal justice”, namely the online information-sharing platform.

                  3. Yielding remarkable results in judicial protection.

                  (1). impartially trying IPR cases according to the law.

                  Developing their criminal, administrative and civil trial functions to the full, the municipal court system tried IPR cases in accordance with the law and severely punished those guilty of IPR infringement crimes. They supervised and safeguarded the exercise of administrative duties by administrative organs in accordance with the law and stepped up efforts in judicial protection. By aggravating compensation responsibility for malicious, repeat and large-scale infringements, various kinds of infringement acts were effectively curbed and the overall efficiency of the judicial protection was improved. Throughout the year, courts at all levels concluded in accordance with the law 504 IPR civil cases at the first instance; 100 IPR cases at the second instance. In cases of the first instance, there were 271 copyright disputes, accounting for 53.8%; 109 patent disputes, making up 21.6%; 101 trademark disputes, occupying 20%; 23 technology contracts and other disputes, accounting for 4.6%. Mediation or withdrawal rate of civil cases hit 68% and the automatic implementation rate reached 100%. 18 IPR-related criminal cases of various kinds were concluded at the first instance. The judgment took legal effect on 32 people, whom were all given a criminal punishment. The main charges included the crime of counterfeiting a registered trademark, the crime of counterfeiting and selling goods of registered trademark, copyright infringement, and infringement of commercial confidentiality.

                  (2) steadily improving the quality and efficiency of IPR trials with innovation management.

                  Through the establishment of the reporting system of major and important cases, coordinating system of related cases, discussion and research system of the law applicable to difficult problems, the level of IPR trial was comprehensively improved and the finality function of the judicial trial in dispute solution was effectively manifested, thus providing maximum protection for the people’s innovation interests and realizing fairness and justice in the field of intellectual property rights. Meanwhile, the principle of “recognizing conciliation as a priority and integrating conciliation with trial was conscientiously carried out so as to actively resolve contradictions and disputes in the field of intellectual property rights. In accordance with the conciliation ideas that it should be conducive to innovation and technological advancement, favorable to coordination of interest and to promote cultural development and prosperity, conciliation methods were innovated in combination with the characteristics of IPR cases. The cooperation with IPR administrative departments and industry associations was intensified to explore the co-conciliation system, obtaining better results in lawsuit and conciliation. Over the past year, the case of trademark infringement and unfair competition dispute between BERNARD (France) co., Ltd. and Tianjin Bernard instrument technique co., Ltd. was mediated according to the law and so was the case of infringing patent right for invention between Shimano Inc. and Ningbo Power industry co. Ltd.. The successful mediation of these cases that had considerable influence realized the organic combination of legal effect and social effect. With various means including public trial, publishing typical cases and publishing adjudicative document on line, through publicity justice was promoted, which in turn won public confidence. Centered around the focal work in Tianjin and trial difficulties, a series of key research activities were launched concerning copyright protection in cyberspace, copyright infringement by karaoke operators, promoting the implementation of the of Tianjin trademark strategy, and trademark protection involving enterprises with “time-honored brands” and well-known enterprises. The research results received timely applications, not only solving the judicial problems, but also effectively serving the IPR work for enterprises in Tianjin.

                  (3) strengthening collaboration between various departments and actively initiating judicial suggestions.

                  The city’s court system strengthened coordination in IPR enforcement procedures with relevant units, achieving advantage-complementing and positive interaction in the judicial protection and administrative protection alike. A joint force against criminal IPR infringement was thus formed. After the conclusion of the series of copyright infringement cases of the Internet cafes and the trademark infringement, a judicial proposal was rendered to related cultural administrative departments and enterprises, in which judicial suggestions were put forward to enhance the awareness of IPR protection.

                  V. The construction of IPR cultural environment undergoes steady improvement

                  1. Striving to create momentum for the “double fights”.

                  The relevant municipal departments, districts and counties actively played their respective advantages and made full use of various forms to carry out the publicity on “double fights”, including posting publicity slogans, issuing bulletins and leaflets, releasing slogan and information with electronic display screens in the markets and live radio programs named “Public Servants into the studio”. All these means created an atmosphere to increase their influence and thus achieved significant results. According to statistics, various forms of concentrated promotional activities were held in Tianjin for more than 2,000 times, distributing publicity announcements amounting to over 700,000 copies, hanging over 1000 pieces of cloth slogans and banners, setting up more than 100 large poster board and electronic screen billboards, issuing 3000 or more pieces of various promotional information, and forming a momentum of shock and awe for the “double fights” as a result.

The Municipal Public Security Bureau carried out two large-scale concentrated displays of victories in the fight against infringement as well as crimes of producing and selling fake goods, and also destruction of infringing and shoddy goods, which attracted visitors amounting to more than 90,000. The Municipal Higher People’s Court established a news conference system, releasing in a timely manner IPR judicial protection status of Tianjin courts and typical cases; in addition, the Court added a column of IPR judicial protection on Tianjin’s Court Network.
