Protection of Intellectual Property Rights in the People’s Republic of China – Status Quo and Limitations
AbstractChina’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection system is a hot topic on many international agendas. What is the current debate about and what is the situation in China today? In a first step this analysis summarizes the status quo of IPR protection in China and current trends in the debate about it. It comes to the first conclusion that China has already adapted its legal framework quite sufficiently, but lacks effective enforcement strategies as well as incentives to adhere to the rules of IPR protection. The second part of this analysis is devoted to connect this debate to the question of the limitations of IPR – a question that so far has been discussed solely in Western countries with respect to poor developing countries but not China. The article comes to the final conclusion that a successful further development of the global IPR system – especially concerning its harmonization and scope – will have to consider the perspectives of all WTO member countries, including the People’s Republic of China.
