China created special intellectual property court
Sarah Steers at 12:00 AM ET

On March 10, 2006, China confirmed during the National People's Congress, an annual parliamentary meeting, that it had established a Judicial Court of Intellectual Property in conjunction with strengthened copyright laws. These changes followed accusations from various countries, including the US, that China had maintained a lax attitude toward intellectual property piracy. In April 2010, the court awarded record damages to Microsoft when it determined that a Chinese insurance firm had been using illegally copied software products.
