Prior to adjourning for the Memorial Say recess, the Senate, on 05/24/2012, by a vote of 96-1, passed S. 3187, the "Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act", " To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to revise and extend the user-fee programs for prescription drugs and medical devices, to establish user-fee programs for generic drugs and biosimilars, and for other purposes", after previously adopting an amendment in the nature of a substitute- an amendment in the nature of a substitute strips all of the language of a bill following the enacting clause and replaces it with new language - offered by Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). Included as part of the language of the amendment was Title XI - Other Provisions, Subtitle C- Misc. Provisions, Section 1133, "Nanotechnology Regulatory Science Program": SEC. 1133.

Nano & Cleantech Blog : Nanotechnology Lawyers & Attorneys : Foley & Lardner Law Firm : Clean Technology, Green Energy China announced its boldest plan in 30 years to overhaul a multitude of economic and social policies, with the release of “The Decision on Major Issues Concerning Comprehensively Deepening Reforms” on November 15, 2013. Within this 21,000-word economic roadmap, one announcement caught my attention: We will strengthen the utilization and protection of intellectual property rights, improve mechanisms for encouraging technological innovation, and explore ways to establish an intellectual property court. Although a general deadline of 2020 is set by the Chinese government for achieving “decisive results” of the sweeping changes laid out in this comprehensive economic roadmap, it is believed that the establishment of the intellectual property court will occur well before that. The introduction of such specialized court, which could be similar to the Federal Circuit in the US, is expected to significantly improve the enforcement of intellectual property rights in China.
