World Intellectual Property Day: domestic medical equipment can not be ignored!
The medical device industry integrates allkinds of highend technology, especially the highend medical equipment coversmany fields such as manufacturing, appearance design, etc. In recent years,there have been many patent litigation cases in the medical device industry,especially in recent years when domestic medical equipment is growing, allkinds of patent infringement cases are common, from medical consumables toimaging equipment, there are intellectual property disputes.
As we all know, domestic medical equipmenthas been a "follower" in the industry for a long time, and has beenin the learning stage in terms of technology and appearance for a long time.However, with the growth of domestic medical equipment, the importance ofintellectual property rights and patents has become increasingly prominent.
Intellectual property strategic resourceshave become the epitome of enhancing the core competitiveness of the economy.The industry has gradually formed a recognition that acquiring intellectualproperty rights can not only quickly open the international market, but alsomaximize the value of core technology products.
With the acceleration of the integration ofeconomy and manufacturing industry, the competition of medical equipmentindustry has become the core competition of intellectual property rights andpatents.
In June last year, the national developmentand Reform Commission's price supervision and inspection and the Anti MonopolyBureau organized a preparatory meeting to officially launch the guidelines onanti-monopoly regulation of abuse of intellectual property rights. The focus ofanti-monopoly law enforcement in the field of intellectual property is to keepa reasonable balance between intellectual property and anti-monopoly.
In response to the increasingly complexintellectual property rights and patents, in addition to paying attention tothe importance of intellectual property rights and patents, domestic medicalequipment should do the following:
1. First to create independent intellectualproperty system of cutting edge new technology
2. Be prepared for legal affairs: protectindependent intellectual property rights and avoid falling into theencirclement and suppression of foreign patents
Everyone in the industry agrees that"patents and intellectual property rights are the core elements of medicaldevice enterprises, and foreign enterprises have absolute right to speak inthis regard". However, without independent intellectual property rights,domestic enterprises can only fight in the low-end product market and strugglein the high-end product market.
How to get rid of this bottleneck, we needto establish our own intellectual property rights as early as possible inhigh-end cutting-edge technology, apply for patents as soon as possible, andlay out as soon as possible; strengthen the protection of our own intellectualproperty rights, and reasonably use the law to avoid the encirclement andsuppression of foreign intellectual property rights. On the basis of enhancingits own soft power, we can transform made in China into intelligentmanufacturing in China, and realize the real rise.
