Some of the settled cases had attracted enormous atten

ention at home and abroad. For example, in handling a dispute between

Chinese and foreign companies, the Beijing Intellectual Property Court conclu

ded a design patent of Chinese automaker Jiangling Motors Group was invalid.

Jaguar Land Rover Automotive said the LandWind X7 SUV manufactured by Jiang

ling subsidiary LandWind was an unauthorized imitation of its Range Rover Evoque.

“Technology-based disputes involving findings of complex tech

nological facts or other new types of disputes are incre

asingly emerging, bringing new adjudication challenges for handling IPR cases,” Song said.

One of the measures taken by the supreme court for improving efficie

ncy is its approval of 19 tribunals to specialize in IPR-related cases across the country.

Contents regarding collective copyright managem

ent organizations, including stock image platforms, have been debatable and remain a key issue among lawmakers,” she said.

“I believe such copyright agencies will be regulated in the future version of the law after Visual

China’s incident, and our IP protection will also be further strengthened thanks to the case,” she added.

Different from many comments that criticized the company and its business, Chen sai

d it is “Okay” for stock image platforms to profit from selling images or filing copyright lawsuits.

“Proper commercial operations can help defend the rights of individual creators, as it is difficult a

nd costly for individuals to sift through seas of information and find out who infringes their rights,” she said. “Or su

ch platforms create a better environment for copyright owners to easily and effectively safeguard their rights.”

But she suggested the country set up a third-party to supervise

the platforms’ operation to prevent them from exercising the rights beyond the legal scope.

Water pollution has forced many regions, especially in southern China, to change their sou

rces of drinking water, with many reaching out to the Yangtze River, a report said.

The contamination of water bodies has made drinking water in souther

n China more scarce, despite a dense network of waterways, according to the report, publ

ished earlier this year by the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, an NGO.

A campaign to root out environmental violations at water intake sites is expect

ed to improve things, but environmental authorities should be aware that local governments may choose to aba

ndon their water intake sources to avoid rectifying problems, said Ma Jun, director of the institute.

New Zealand’s new gun law takes effect Jacinda Ardern sp

New Zealand’s new gun law officially took effect on Friday less than a month after the terror attacks on Christchurch mosques which killed 50 people.

Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy signed the law on Thursday night, which was the final step before it becomes law.

The New Zealand parliament passed the bill after its third or the final reading on Wednesday night. In acorda

nce with the new gun law, possessing military-style semi-automatics (MSSAs) and assault rifles and associated parts will be illegal.

The new gun bill, namely the Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines and parts) Amendment

Bill, won overwhelming support in the parliament as it was passed by a vote of 119 to 1.

Possession of prohibited firearms could face a jail term up to five years, according to the bill.

The New Zealand government had vowed to ban MSSAs soon afte

r the Christchurch terrorist attacks on March 15, which also injured 50 others.

The New Zealand government has also announced that a legal framework for the gun buyback will be established.

Trump to attend 75th anniversary of Normandy landi

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he will attend the ceremonies t

o be held in France later this year for commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

Trump made the remarks when asked by a World War II veteran at the Oval Office in the White House.

“I’ll be there,” he said.

The Normandy landings, an unexceptionally big military operation launched by the Allied troops, commence

d on June 6, 1944, breaking Nazi Germany’s grip on France and changing the course of history during the World War II.

Trump made a trip to France for the 100th anniversary commemorations of the end of World War I last November.

He has frequently criticized European members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization

for failing to meet the official annual defense spending target of 2 percent of gross domestic product set by the organization.
