CIELA is a unique, highly innovative online tool providing statistical analysis of IP administrative appeals, and civil infringement litigation proceedings in China.
We've spent thousands of hours gathering data from more than 30,000 published IP judgments across all major IP courts in China since 2006 to provide rights owners the information they need to develop an informed approach to enforcement in China.
The growth of IP litigation in China in the past several years has been bewildering from 18,000 civil and administrative IP cases concluded in 2006, to over 116,000 concluded in 2014.
But for many foreign rights owners a fog of uncertainty still hangs over the litigation landscape in China, with little meaningful data available to separate misconception from reality.
CIELA can be accessed in two ways: CIELA Online as a FREE web-app and CIELA Research which is a customised research service.
