IP Certificate Services

Protecting your intellectual property (IP) of your creations is a top priority for APPTUTTi. Intellectual property (IP) protection is a subject of concern for mobile apps/games developers seeking to publish in China. In March 2016, the Chinese government introduced a new policy on the digital IP registration process. This registration assures that China is committed to the protection and upholding of your IP rights.

IP-Protection

We handle the documentation preparation, registration application and monitor the approval status until the release of the official IP certification. You won’t need to worry about anything. APPTUTTi has a dedicated team to help you in securing your IP in China. 

Remark:

IP Registration is strictly required for GAMING Apps to be published on the major app stores in China. For
other Apps type, it is good to have for your basic protection and speedier launch in China.
