“Further enhancing the protection of intellect

上海乌托邦quired by scientific and technological innovation and essential for China’s greater opening-up,” Li said.
Those attending the meeting on Wednesday decided to intensify law enforcement action in intellectual property上海乌托邦品茶微信

Efforts to formulate and improve the criteria for determining, checking and verifying infrin上海乌托邦

International cooperation in IPR protection will be enhanced to make it easier for上海乌托邦
companies to obtain intellectual property rights and their protection overseas.
The government will advance revision of the Patent Law and the Copyright Law, the new上海乌托邦品茶微信

ority will continue to come up with measures to grow the construction of facilities t
hat protect intangible cultural heritage and offer better conditions for cultural inheritors.上海乌托邦品茶微信
So far, several masters of intangible culture have moved in, and the park is talking
上海乌托邦with more than 30 inheritors nationwide about some form of cooperation.
The park offers more than 30 spaces for traditional artists to meet guests and show their work.
For example, many artists will make bracelets because they are currently popular,” Zhang says.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“But jade, after all, is non-renewable. If we all cut good material to make quick consumables, it would be pointless,” he adds.
上海乌托邦Zhang believes joining Yongyuan will allow for more thorough, long-term learning am
ong artisans in his field and collaboration with designers who are more familiar with the market.
The ultimate goal is to better combine the art of jade sculpture with tasteful design and then h上海乌托邦
elp the public to gain a better appreciation for the beauty of this traditional art, Zhang says.
上海乌托邦The China National Textile and Apparel Council has also settled in the park.
Handbags and clothes bearing elements of intangible culture are neatly placed at the co上海乌托邦品茶微信
uncil’s workshop for visitors to appreciate and, if it tickles their fancy, purchase.
上海乌托邦”We will mainly showcase products deriving from intangible cultural heritage i
nnovation in the field of textiles,” says Xia Jingjing, an employee with the textile council.
These products are selected from art masters working in the industry nationwide.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The council will also invite textile art masters to mee
t with designers and develop new products for the future, according to Xia.
“The Yongyuan office will also be a good platform to test the wate上海乌托邦
r and see what kinds of textile products appeal to consumer tastes,” Xia says.
上海乌托邦品茶微信Zhang Tiecheng, a Chinese arts and crafts master, is one of the first to move into Yongyuan.
His workshop at the park now presents a range of delicate jade items on sale to the public.
Zhang has engaged in the art of jade sculp
ting-an art form once practiced by ancient royal houses-for more than three decades.
He says that people are increasingly interested in the field because of its growi
ng returns, but that has unfortunately led many inheritors of art to make items purely for money.

Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro
ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦
According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event
上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo
rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.
“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦
During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l
上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.
Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes－with Ca
ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信
hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.
“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦
form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”
Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr
上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed
earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo
ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid
er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine－all made of gold－all de
monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.
Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p
ieces depicting celestial deities playing Chinese lutes remind visitors of the popularity of music at that ti
上海乌托邦me, while an arched plaque also tells people of the Tubo people’s admiration for the phoenix.
The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s
cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ
ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”

The expert group of the World Intellectual Property Organization gave a high appraisal of the achievements and pro

The 4,000-year-old Shimao Site, city ruins found in Shenmu, Sha
