The Chinese market is not just trading in China and in the past.

For your consideration

In working with businesses in North America, Asia and Europe I feel the importance of the internet has been lost on many companies trading locally and world-wide trading.

The internet is often seen as something your business needs a presence on and not the main point in which to start trading. Maybe we saw it as something that was important in the 90’s but we have move on, that was yesterday idea!

This is not the case; the birth of the internet was as important as the birth of the printing press. Like the printing press, the internet is finding different uses very quickly given that the internet, like the printing press, enables faster commutation of information. If the printing press gave access to towns and cities., the internet gives us access to the world.   

There has been a world-wide change in the use of the internet which has been developing over the last 10 years.

The USA has leads the way, “if you are not online you not trading”. This is followed by China, not Europe, with number of users over 800 million and growing. The developing markets of Africa and South America will follow soon.

There has been a growing and changing use of the internet driven by the youth of the world over. 20 years ago, TV, books, newspapers were the main sources of information. Today the growing demands for information, educations and purchases is supplied by the internet.

There is now a generation which grew up with the internet and is working in business. They are changing the way in which we trade locally and international. This change is so great that your local market now has direct access to the international market.

This change is not a “Big Bang” but the changes are happening daily and are often missed by business.

Based on our company extensive knowledge we suggest the following key issues need to be considered;

  • Be seen on the internet world-wide. What services on the internet have been developed recently? Can new services help to grow your business or are they going to take control away from your business?
  • The amount of information being collected has given birth to the term “Big Data”. How can you put this information to use for our business?
  • With each passing generation the world-wide knowledge grows. The world-wide demand for education and training is growing fast along with the growing populations. Is your business seen as a source for information?
  • The world-wide control of distribution channels. The use of the internet enables people to access products and services faster. New big businesses are keen to manage and control access to products and services. Do these new businesses create new business opportunities or effect your current trading?

Chinese Brand Registration

brand registration

If there is only one thing you do having read this paper, this is it, register you company brands, logo and intellectual property in China.

Having your interest protected outside China will not project your interest in the Chinese market.

Any business / person inside or outside China can register a band inside China. There is some protection for the major international band. We understand that the Chinese authorities when reviewing a band application will check there own international band registration database. This database is limited to major bands and offer little protection for SME bands.

In recent years the Chinese authorities have encouraged Chinese companies to register their bands. This has results in many bands been registered in China when Chinese company do not own the banding outside China.  

A process summary

  • Appoint an agent to handle your registration

Our recommendation is you appoint an agent from your own country. They in turn will appoint a Chinese agent; only a Chinese licensed agent can make the application to the Chinese authorities.

By using a local agent from our own country means you will be working in your local language and under the trading terms of your country.

A local agent from your own country should also have access to the band registration database in China and therefore will be able to make checks on what is already registered. This will save time and money with band submission that will not be successful from the outset.

  • Submit the papers to Chinese authorities.

Your agent will handle this matter. Please make sure all the information is correct including the spelling, fonts, etc.

Before submitting make sure through your agent that you are not using words in the brand name that are not allowed or will need further supporting documentation. E.g. country names, “British”.

  • Paper are reviewed by the Chinese authorities

The information submitted will reviewed by the Chinese authorities. This is comprehensive and take up to three months to complete.

  • Chinese brand registration rejected

The Chinese authorities can reject the registration request. They will give their reasoning.

If it is a point of missing understanding this can often be corrected.

If a change to the band name or spelling is required then a new submission is often required.

  • Chinese brand registration acceptance

Once a band registration is accepted there is a two year “cooling off period”. During this period any party can challenge the registration. While it would unlikely that the challenge would be successful there are no guarantee and will result in time and money to resolve.

  • Renewal processes

Dependant of the type of registration you may be required to renewal every 10 to 15 years.

Please make sure to understand want is required before you complete this process.

Once you have band registration you can, if you wish, stop Chinese companies selling your band in the Chinese e-Malls as well as reporting “copy” products.
