ENFORCEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS IN CHINA

Jianqiang Nie

For China, the implementation of the WTO rules, and the commitments contained in its WTO Accession Protocol, will cause considerable change in the domestic legal order. One of the key legal changes is the introduction and implementation of standards contained in the TRIPS Agreement. Enforcement of Intellectual Rights in China focuses on both the domestic impact of the TRIPS Agreement as well as China’s relationship with the IP rich industrialised countries. Prof. Jianqing Nie begins by identifying the philosophical obstacles to enforcement inherent in the pre-WTO Chinese legal order and explores means by which TRIPS compliance may be brought about both in the statute books, and more importantly, in practice.

Dr. Jianqiang Nie is Professor of Law at the Institute of International Law, Wuhan University, China
