Use requirements at different stages?”, “The trademark filing strategy, subclasses system, Madrid application or national application, defensive applications, use requirement etc.?”, just to name a few.

Yunquan also shares insights and takeaways on the “Strategy or Best Practice of Protecting Trademarks in China”.
