Litigation
When an infringement occurs, the patentee or any interested party may institute legal proceedings in the people's court (judicial patent enforcement, patent litigation in China), or request the administrative authority for patent affairs to handle the matter (administrative patent enforcement).

A lawsuit brought for infringement of patent rights shall be under the jurisdiction of the people’s court located in the place where the infringing act took place or where the defendant has his domicile.

As China modernizes, its intellectual property laws and policies are changing rapidly. The patent laws have undergone three major revisions in the past 25 years, with each revision strengthening patent enforcement. The upcoming fourth revision is expected to include measures such as new rules of evidence for the determination of damages, increased maximum damages, and punitive damages for patent infringement.
