Staff from the Intellectual Property Office will begin working at British embassies in India and China from the autumn to help resolve issues of intellectual property policies and enforcement.
Intellectual Property Office chief executive John Alty explained at a Westminster Forum event on Tuesday that the move will boost the dialogue between nations on the importance of intellectual property laws.
"The intellectual property scene is changing rapidly, and we are creating roles for attachés in embassies in China and India to help promote policy and enforcement issues in these nations," he said.
"We are also looking at doing likewise in east Asia and the Americas by 2012. Other markets will only follow if they see what's in it for them to subscribe to intellectual property market conditions, so we need to get them involved in discussions."
The strategy to install staff in such nations was first put forward by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in March, and China was cited as one of the worst offenders for copyright infringement.
Alty explained that discussions towards a global patent system will help businesses to secure patents in nations across the world, but that it will not be an easy task.
"It's taken 40 years for member states in the EU to reach any form of patent agreement and that's still not even happened, although we hope that rapid progress in the past year will deliver this goal with an effective judicial system," he said.
"This should not stop us trying to create a global system, though, as the US looks to move to a system more closely aligned with the rest of the world [first to file, rather than first to create]."
Alty also revealed that government efforts to limit the costs SMEs have to bear when bringing cases protecting their intellectual property have had a positive effect.
"SMEs are better placed to make a business decision when deciding to bring any action, and judges are saying, at least anecdotally, that there appears to be an incremental demand for this service," he said.
At the same event, Ian Hargreaves, author of the Hargreaves Review, said that he is hopeful that a number of his recommendations are being considered by ministers to help overhaul the UK's intellectual property and copyright laws.
