– Register your intellectual property in your home country, and the countries you intend to sell in or licence to;

For example: Register your trade marks in China and the countries you will be manufacturing your licensed products;

– Remember there is a first to file rule in China – So do not allow your manufacturer to register your trade mark as their own;

– Use a written agreement to protect your know-how, brand and trade secrets in China;

– Seek legal advice and ensure contractually that the Chinese manufacturer supplies products of the desired quality, and within agreed timescales;

Do not rely on purchase orders alone, rely on comprehensive agreements with each manufacturer;

– Use a reputable manufacturer with track record, and one who provides references;

– A successful brand depends on the care and attention to all of these details.
