By Vanessa Yanhua Zhang

Since the Anti-Monopoly Law (hereinafter “AML”) of China took effect in August 2008, private litigation has become one of the most important areas attracting scholars and practitioners’ attention. This November 2015, we were honored to have an interview with Judge Chuang Wang, Deputy Presiding Judge of the Third Civil Tribunal (Intellectual Property Tribunal) at the Supreme People’s Court of the People’s Republic of China. The full interview is below.

Zhang: Thank you very much for sharing your insights with our readers. China’s AML took effect on August 1, 2008. In the past eight years, legislation and enforcement of the AML have greatly matured. What is the current situation of private antitrust cases handled by China’s court system since the AML was enforced?
