TaiwanNew courts, new rules and new practices for IP litigation

Due to the rapid development of technological innovation in recent years, IP rights have not only played an important role in the promotion of economic development and trade liberalisation, but have also become to be seen as indicators of national competitiveness. As well as business opportunities and economic benefits, IP rights can lead to endless disputes, causing both increases in litigation costs in many countries and the erection of trade barriers by certain countries. As IP protection is the key to success in a knowledge-based economy, Taiwan has been making efforts to maintain a high standard of law and practice relating to IP rights. To keep pace in this era of globalisation and to maintain scientific and technological competitiveness, the IP Court has been established to resolve IP-related disputes effectively and efficiently. In addition, the IP Adjudication Act has been passed, laying down a new set of procedural rules for IP-related cases.
