Border measures for patent infringement

In January 2014, the provision of border measures against patent infringement in Taiwan were added to patent law. Enforcement of the new legislation extends the protective coverage of border controls to patent rights, in addition to the protection provided for trademarks and copyrights. While this, no doubt, empowers the customs authorities to suspend the release of the alleged patent-infringing articles,the customs investigation and determination of patent-infringing goods will rely heavily on the cooperation of right-holders due to the sophistication of the various technologies involved.
