Increasing business transactions between Taiwan and China have caused international intellectual property disputes to become a new and serious problem for Taiwanese businessmen who have direct and indirect investments in trade. In order to solve this problem, Taiwan and China sequentially set special regulations. For example, section 74 of the Act Governing Relations between Peoples of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area was enacted by the government of Taiwan to recognize China’s civil arbitration procedures. On July 23, 2004, China established the Regulations of the Supreme People’s Court Regarding the People’s Courts’ Recognition of the Civil Judgments Rendered by the Courts in the Taiwan Region to offer an alternate way to look at arbitration decisions that were already made in Taiwan. Arbitration is one of the current methods of resolving intellectual property disputes between China and Taiwan. Arbitration is the best option for Taiwanese businesses, due to its prompt, professional, flexible, confidential, impartial, economical, harmonious and executable advantages.
