    There is a heated discussion on the inventor remuneration policy. Recently, the high court of Guangdong rules CNY 1 million of inventor remuneration to one employee.  SIPO will also finalize the aforesaid Draft Regulations and planed to submit it to the SCLAO for review by the end of 2012. Agree with SIPO, Patent and Innovation Committee initiated a project to support the Draft Regulations.  At the same time, SIPO had entrusted Renmin University of China (the “RUC”) to collect and study opinions from industry on inventor remuneration. 34 QBPC members joined the one-day seminar jointly held by QBPC and RUC on July 26 and witnessed the hot discussion about the inventor's remuneration. 


    The attached is the Chinese and English versions of the Draft Regulations. It seem the regulation would strongly impact R&D policy of our member companies.  Please refer to it for more information.
