Trademark Opposition Decisions Available in China Trademark Office’s Online Database

To enhance the transparency of the examination of trademark opposition in China in order to get more supervision from the public, China Trademark Office decides to publish online the trademark decisions from 1st January, 2020.


All the trademark opposition decisions will be input into the databse (http://sbj.cnipa.gov.cn/) within 20 working days from the mailing of the decision, except for following conditions:


1.Where the decision relates to business secrets or personal privacy of the concerned party;

2.Where the applicant formally requests for not revealing the decision with a reasonable ground;

3.Where any special conditions are concerned.


Different opinions or any suggestions from the public are welcomed by CTO.


Trademark Opposition is a valuable method to stop trademark infringement in China. And China Trademark Office is making this process more transparent. The published cases can also be references for our analysis on the chances of success for trademark opposition.


China Trademark & Patent Law Office will provide professional suggestions on trademark infringement, trademark opposition, trademark cancellation, trademark application and trademark search. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
