So you’ve set up a Wholly Foreign-Owned Entity in China and things are humming along fine. Sales are growing, your employees seem happy and eager to come to work, and the relations between your entity and Chinese tax authorities is in its honeymoon phase – you're dotting all the “i”s and crossing your “t”s.  Or so you think.

The more time a company spends operating and conducting business in China, naturally the more comfortable and lax its managers become. What starts with great attention to detail and appreciation for the bureaucracy that is China, often the excitement of acquiring new clients and earning more revenue causes overseas managers to lose control of the WFOE’s optimization.

Un tempo era MSN Messanger, che divenne Skype e oggi è WeChat.
Ma senza WeChat in Cina, vivere è più difficile. Anche per le aziende.
Ecco perché un’azienda, operativa in Cina, dovrebbe avere un account ufficiale con WeChat

Se vi state chiedendo: “WeChat? non ho la più pallida idea di cosa stiate parlando”, avete una pallida idea della Cina. 

Se vi state chiedendo perché dobbiate creare un profilo ufficiale per la vostra azienda e per i vostri collaboratori su WeChat, conoscete un po’ meglio sulla Cina, un po’ meno il marketing in Cina. 

China Supreme Court Determines Pure Non-competition Agreements Do Not Constitute a Security Measure for Trade Secret Protection

Under the PRC Anti-Unfair Competition Law (Article 10), one of prerequisites for the protection of certain technical or business information as a trade secret is whether the owner has taken security measures to maintain its secrecy. In practice, many enterprises may use non-compete agreements signed with employees as a security measure to protect their trade secrets. Such agreements, however, are usually pure competition restriction agreements, which only provide that the employee may not work for competitors or run competing businesses for himself within a certain period after termination or expiration of the employment. In a trade secret infringement case (Shanghai Industrial Co., Ltd. v. Huang Ziyu and Shanghai Safeiya Textile Co., Ltd.) retried by the Supreme People’s Court(“the Supreme Court”), the Supreme Court determines that "pure non-competition agreements” does not constitute a security measure on the grounds that such agreement does not explicitly embody the employer’s intent to keep secret and the scope of the information to be protected as trade secret.
