China to Establish Local IPR Infringement Centers

According to Xinhua news service on April 11, 2006, "China has planned to set up special service centers in 50 cities this year to handle domestic complaints on the infringement of intellectual property rights (IPR)." The moove was announced on the same day that the Chinese "Iron Lady" Vice Premier Wu Yi and US Trade Representative Rob Portman met to discuss US-China trade and IPR, seeking to ease tensions before President Hu Jintao's visit to the US next week and preventing a WTO complaint by the US. Mark Drajem's story for Bloomberg is available here.

Not sure if this is of any significance as it is not clear to me exactly what these centers will do. I would prefer to see the courts get tougher instead.
