Director Daniel A. Gajewski was mentioned in the article “Surge in Chinese Utility Models Causes Concern,” published by IAM. From the article:

“CNIPA itself has appeared to be grappling with quality problems with utility models in recent years. Sterne Kessler’s Daniel Gajewski reported that the office has been issuing more rejections – including on the basis of novelty, subject matter and other substantive reasons – during the initial examination, which is ostensibly only for formalities. But it has done so quietly, unevenly and without an official change in guidelines, Gajewski wrote in 2019.”
