The social satisfaction for IP protection in Tianjin retained the top spot in the country, providing powerful security for stimulating the innovation, development and upgrading of the industrial structure of scientific and technological enterprises, as well as for pushing forward the construction of a strong municipality of IP protection.

                  I. The Implementation of Intellectual Property Strategy Advances and the System Building for Intellectual Property Protection Is Constantly Improved.

                  With strengthened policy guide and the focus on making advancement as a whole, the overall strength of intellectual property rights in Tianjin reached the advanced level nationwide. In accordance with the annual work arrangement and the department cooperation mechanism, the member units of Tianjin Leading Group Office of Intellectual Property Strategy worked in close cooperation to finish the periodical assessment for the implementation of of intellectual property strategy  in Tianjin and to formulate “Promotion Plan for Intellectual Property Strategy in Tianjin(2014-2016)”. “Guidelines for Strengthening the Intellectual Property Rights Protection in the Districts and Counties of Tianjin” was drafted. Moreover, the White Paper on the Intellectual Property Rights Protection in Tianjin was released in continuation, providing a panoramic view of Tianjin’s achievement in IP Protection.The research on the 13th Five-Year Plan on intellectual property rights was activated; “Formulation Program for the 13th Five-Year Plan on Tianjin’s Intellectual Property Rights” was made, thus once again allowing IP planning to be selected as a key special project in Tianjin. “The Opinions on Strengthening Intellectual Property Rights Review for Major Economic Activities” was formulated to boost the combination of  IP and major projects and improve investment security of such  projects. As a result, the promotion of IP review for major scientific and technological activities in Tianjin was allowed to become a national pilot. The joint meeting system of promoting the use of legitimate software in Tianjin was established and the Regulation on  the Use of Legitimate Software in the Municipal Government agencies of Tianjin was drawn up. The long-term management mechanism for the use of legitimate software in the municipal government agencies was created for legitimate software usage in the municipal government agencies, thus forming the normalized management mode for the use of legitimate software in the municipal government agencies. What was more, the research on the IP protection system construction for Tianjin Free Trade Zone was started in order to actively explore new mechanisms and modes for IP protection and management in Tianjin Free Trade Zone.

                  II.Cooperative Development Strategy of Beijing Tianjin Hebei Integration Is Put into Effect and the Long-term Mechanism of Intellectual Property Rights Protection Is Constantly Improved.

                  1. A new-round IP cooperation and consultation is launched between State Intellectual Property Office and the municipal government of Tianjin.

The IP driver program titled “ Ten key industries, One hundred leading technology companies, One thousand killer products and key new products as well as Ten thousand small and medium sized S&T based enterprises” was carried out so as to build IP protection highland for Binhai New Area. The State Intellectual Property Office took the lead to establish IP coordination mechanism between the SIPO and three regions of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province, in which the Municipal Intellectual Property Bureau was actively involved; the Bureau also developed the implementation program of the IP-driven cooperative development for Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province. Furthermore, a framework agreement was drafted on “Cooperation Agreement of Law Enforcement and Protection of Intellectual Property Rights (Patent) for Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei”, thus realizing the integration of IP enforcement and protection in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.

Inter-regional law enforcement cooperation was reinforced to bring into full play the cooperative mechanism for patent administrative enforcement of nine provinces and municipalities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and Tianjin. Consequently, IP protection between provinces and municipalities was promoted.

The public security organs at all levels set up liaison officers among administrative law enforcement agencies such as the Industrial and Commercial Administration and the Intellectual Property Bureau with regular joint meetings, developing and improving various mechanisms of the sharing of information resources, the situation reporting of case occurrences and transferring of case clues.

At the same time, the public security organs at all levels insisted on information-oriented investigation and increased efforts in this respect. In particular, depending on the actual applications of the inquiry platform of administrative law enforcement organs and information systems, the fight against IP infringement and counterfeiting goods became further systematized and targeted, providing a powerful support for the direction of case investigation and obtaining evidence. As a result, the fight against such crimes became more targeted and explicit.

                  3) rendering services to enterprises and raising their independent right-protection awareness

                  The public security organs at all levels in Tianjin strengthened their contacts with well-known enterprises and those with well-known trademarks and set up plans of monthly visits to these enterprises, Symposiums of business leaders and the management team were organized by the Public Security Bureau on a regular basis to keep them closely informed of market dynamics, the trend of incidence of criminal offenses as well as industry distribution.
