The leading UK producers trade association, announced a new legal framework, designed to protect the sharing of confidential ideas and intellectual property between UK and Chinese co production partners.

Fully compliant with both UK and Chinese law, the new framework is a new addition to a suite of legal and logistics documents featured in the UK-China Film & TV Toolkit, a resource developed along with the UK’s Intellectual Property Attaché to China based in the British Embassy in Beijing and the British Film Institute (BFI).

Announced on the eve of the 3rd annual UK China Creative Exchange programme, the new framework is designed to foster deeper collaboration between British and Chinese content producers and stimulate trade by protecting and promoting the co creation of ideas.
