China to set up intellectual property courts

BEIJING -- China will create intellectual property rights courts in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou within the next three years to better process the growing number of cases and meet international expectations.

     The courts could be set up as early as next spring. They will handle patent lawsuits, as well as civil and administrative cases dealing with highly technical and specialized information, such as semiconductor designs and new plant varieties.
