Article 7 of the newly-amended Chinese Trademark Law specifically provides that the principle of good faith shall be upheld in the application for trademark registration and in the use of trademarks. This provision is mainly aimed at the current trend of rampant trademark squatting and malicious infringement. Article 7 is expected to be broadly used in cases about authorization and protection of exclusive rights to use a trademark. In addition, the new trademark law has strengthened regulation regarding intentionally applying for trademark registration of identical or similar marks on the same or similar goods whilst knowing that it is identical or similar to an unregistered trademark already used by another party. The law has also introduces a punitive compensation system against malicious trademark infringement. Therefore, interactive discussions of how to identify "malice" and the influence in trademark authorization and infringement cases are particularly important to professionals within the industry.
