The USA expends a great deal of resources in this effort, as it allegedly and reportedly costs the IP owners somewhere in the vicinity of USD 3 billion in lost revenues.

Now, if the USA could just expend a similar KPI measured effort to combat the USD 100 BILLION a year in illicit casual drug use in the USA and focus on helping our neighbors, such as Mexico shake off the terrorist yolk of organized crime racking their country, because of our addiction to feeling good through substance abuse.

Hopefully, this opinion isn't too far off topic.

Your BEST solution is to contact one of the law firms that advertise on here (because they're bilingual...sort of and bad reviews will kill an advertiser here quickly, so the law firms are usually positively reviewed).

NOT that that's a qualification for reliability and fairness, but it's a good start in lieu of no information.

If you need assistance with the law firms, You MAY want to PM @longdragon (assuming he's still in country) as he knows BOTH law firms who've advertised here. He can help refer you fee-based (if it's troublesome) or gratis (if you just need a referral - the threat or knowledge of an in-country buddy can help get things done to your satisfaction).

Don't forget - once you get the police certification - it'll need to be notarized (probably), translated, then notarized again (or translated and notarized), for authenticity.

Good luck getting this done remotely. What a pain.

Met a friend after dinner for drinks and chat up on the rooftop patio/bar. Music was a little loud for us - but was surprised at this jewel of a bar. What a nice comfortable place.

I was told the hostel only charges cny40 a night for a shared room bunk bed - can't beat that.

Truly a gem for travelers on a budget and the rooftop bar has a beautiful and memorable sunset view (see the pictures).


Stopped by last night for dinner on the small patio and to pick up a couple of their apple pies. Always attentive and courteous staff and good solid food. Don't forget to check out their freezers for frozen foods like chicken and beef pot pies, pizzas, quiches, cakes etc.


This cafe is actually in the Yunda Green Lake campus and connected to the French Language school operated by Alliance Francais or the French Alliance.

It's mentioned elsewhere that pastries are provided by A Table down the street on Beimen Jie.

Aside from the no-smoking ban (since it's on-campus in Yunda) - it's a nice, quiet, smoke free and pleasant environment to rest, read, and relax for bit - if you happen to be on-campus and can't find a place to sit.


I found Beijing Yingke through their ad on the gokunming website.

I recently used Beijing Yingke to take care of a rather complicated real estate transaction. After finally gathering all the required documents as specified - we actually managed to successfully complete the entire process in a single visit with no requirements for "additional documents" or "extra procedures".


The attorneys were polite, tolerant of infinitely many questions, professional, courteous, and most of all - professional and competent.
The law firms fees were an acceptable increment above local fees, to account for the multi-lingual requirements.

Most importantly - the requested transaction was completed on the first pass with no additional documentation or procedures - which is a stunning accomplishment and nod towards Beijing Yingke's professional knowledge in this sector.

Five Star rating - highly recommend.


Finally got around to using Salvador's delivery service - tried it out on the chicken burrito and their bag of nacho chips. Delivery was flawless despite being a bit out of area (≥4km) and the food was still warm.

First experience - excellent (5 stars).

Excellent as always - even with long distance delivery. Now if only the online menu was expanded a little (like the chicken strips...hint hint hint...nudge nudge...wink wink).
