[FR Doc. 2011–26736 Filed 10–14–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–25–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE United States Patent and Trademark Office [Docket No. PTO–C–2011–0056] Request for Comments on Intellectual Property Enforcement in China United States Patent and Trademark Office, Department of Commerce. ACTION: Request for written submissions from the public. AGENCY: As China has become a major trading partner for the United States, U.S. rights holders are increasingly seeking to protect and enforce their intellectual property (IP) in that country. China’s patent and trademark offices are now among the largest in the world in terms of filings, and its IP enforcement system is being increasingly utilized by U.S. rights holders. Ensuring that the Chinese IP system works in a fair and timely manner for U.S. innovators is a top priority for the U.S. Government. To that end, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in collaboration with other U.S. Government agencies, is leading an effort to identify and assess the challenges U.S. inventors are facing with China’s judicial and administrative patent enforcement systems. The USPTO would like to address the concerns of rights holders by working with them to identify problems—such as difficulties in gathering evidence, meeting evidentiary requirements, protecting proprietary information, obtaining adequate damages, and enforcing preliminary injunctions—to then find ways to address these issues with the Chinese Government. As part of this effort, the USPTO, in coordination with the White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC), has conducted a series of roundtables to obtain the views of diverse members of the patent community who have first-hand experience enforcing their patents in China. Roundtables were held on July 19, 2011, in Washington, DC; on July 26, 2011, in Beijing, China; on July 29, 2011, in Shanghai, China; and on August 1, 2011, in Guangzhou, China.
