China IP Infringement Newsletters Introduced by InterLingua Legal Publishing

REDONDO BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2006 -- According to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), over 90 percent of copyrighted products sold in China are pirated, which is causing material injury to U.S. companies, workers, and communities, and is contributing to a highly skewed bilateral economic relationship. Not only is the soaring U.S. trade deficit with China weakening the competitive position of many U.S. firms, but the continuing trend has negative implications for the long-term economic and security interests of the United States.

To help monitor China's intellectual property infringement activities, InterLingua Legal Publishing, has introduced the "China IP Report" in three editions; one each for copyrights, patents and trademarks.

The "China IP Reports" will cover a broad range of issues concerning intellectual property rights in today's China. The monthly electronic newsletters will examine:

a. Court Cases -- summaries of IP cases recently decided in China's courts;

b. Media Articles -- summaries of recent media coverage of IP issues appearing in China's press; and,

c. New Laws & Policies -- summaries of the latest Chinese IP legislation.

"This is incredibly unique information that is being collected for InterLingua by a Beijing-based IP law firm, and translated in China so no nuances are missed," says Kris Sakuragi, Editor of "China IP Reports." "The information isn't available in English from any other source."

Copies of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission's report, and a sample of the "China IP Report: Copyright Edition" can be downloaded at www.China-IP-Reports.com. The "China IP Reports" will be distributed monthly in electronic format and subscriptions are $249.00 per year for each newsletter.
