China has dramatically changed its approach to the patent system, and
is on track to be the number one owner of patents. According to the
World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), there are now about
three times as many domestic patent applications in China than foreign
patent applications. In the United States, foreign patent applications
now exceed domestic patent applications.The looming challenge for the
U.S. will not be Chinese firms infringing U.S. patents, but U.S. firms
infringing Chinese and other foreign owned patents.
