If any of your intellectual property rights (IPR) is infringed, besides resorting to legal remedy by law court or IPR authorities, you may apply to China Customs for Customs enforcement of IPRs.

Customs IPR enforcement refers to the measures taken by the Customs, in accordance with the Regulations of the P. R. China on Customs Protection of Intellectual Property Rights, to detain, investigate and dispose any import/export goods that are suspected of infringing on any IPR under the protection of Chinese laws and administrative regulations and to impose penalty on the consignee or consignor of such goods.

At present, the IPRs protected by China Customs refer to the exclusive right to use trademark, copyright and copyright-associated rights, patent right, and exclusive right of Olympic symbols and that of World Expo symbols that are involved in import or export goods and protected by the laws and administrative regulations of the P. R. China.
