Description

China's accession to the WTO and TRIPs heralded massive changes in Chinese intellectual property (IP) law. This book asks whether all aspects of Chinese law and practice are now TRIPS compliant? The study offers both Chinese and European perspectives. Examining substantive IP law in detail, the contributors conclude that the changes have been far reaching and TRIPs compliance has been achieved. They also argue that China's IP laws are now addressing the new challenges of the digital revolution and the global economy. Of equal importance is enforcement, and in this respect, the book reveals that change started later and that further work remains to be done. The book highlights the important efforts that are underway and the undeniable progress that is being made. All these issues are placed in an international context, where the development agenda is becoming more important and where the discussion on the renegotiation of the TRIPs has started. The contributors include leading members of the Chinese judiciary, as well as academics, politicians and practitioners from China, Europe and Canada. The approach taken to the subject combines academic rigorousness with political realism and the practical needs of operating an effective law enforcement and judicial system in a vast and rapidly developing country. This book will be warmly welcomed by IP academics and researchers, policy makers, R&D departments around the world and investors in China.
