Reduction in fees for online trademark registration in China

The China National IP Administration announced a 10% reduction in fees for online trademark registration.

Although China is a member of the Nice Agreement, which standardizes the international classification of goods and services for the registration of trademarks (except for a number of goods and services that the Chinese office considers vague or contrary to law), it additionally establishes a number of goods and services not defined or provided for in the Nice classification.

So far, only the on-line registration of trademark applications to protect goods and services under the Nice classification enjoyed a 10% discount on official fees, but the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) has just announced the extension of this benefit to all trademark applications, including those relating to goods and services not included in the Nice classification.
