He believes that the relationship between anti-monopoly and IP rights is not just a legal issue. In the present world situation, we should consider the relationship between the two from international and industrial perspectives. On this basis, we should consider legal theory, practice and law enforcement standards, and should also consider how to determine the relationship and rules between the two according to the industrial development in practice in China. In order to coordinate and solve the problem of the intersection of IP and anti-monopoly law, we must realize it by professional means.

In the new era, whether it is a new pattern of technological innovation or a new pattern of IP protection, they constantly produce a dynamic balance.

Ma Yufeng, Chief representative of Shanghai Branch of Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe spoke about IP issues in the context of the Sino-US trade war and some new developments in the United States patent litigation over the past year. He believes that the ban on ZTE in 2018 and the event of Ms. Meng in Huawei are only the beginning. In the future, there will be more cases against Chinese companies in the United States. Chinese companies should pay close attention to the progress of the Fairchild case. Once the boundaries of direct infringement are broken, the amount of compensation faced by Chinese companies will increase substantially.
