For many business investors in China, the legal handling of trade secrets is crucial. However, initiatives are often complicated by a patchwork trade secrets protection system, developed rapidly over less than twenty years, that diverges in significant ways from global standards and corresponding regimes in other countries, and that incorporates elements of competition law, contract law, employment law, and criminal law.

Now for the first time, in this detailed analysis of China’s trade secrets law, corporate counsel and international lawyers have a thorough and practical approach to the subject. The Protection of Trade Secrets in China provides in-depth information and guidance on such important factors as the following:

  • the current framework of China’s trade secrets law, its past development and its ongoing trends;
  • legal comparison of China’s trade secrets law with various international, regional, and national schemes;
  • what constitutes trade secrets infringement in China and what remedies are available; and
  • the legal interaction in China between employment relations and trade secrets protection.

    The author pays close attention to judicial practice and precedent in the areas of civil remedies, criminal punishment, and administrative penalties. She also offers insightful proposals formulated to align China’s trade secrets law more efficiently with prevailing global standards and generally improve the mechanisms for its implementation.

    Corporate counsel and international lawyers concerned with intellectual property rights or labour law in China will greatly appreciate the knowledgeable guidance this book affords. They will gain a deeply informed perspective that allows them to avoid infringement, to battle it effectively if occasion arises, and to plan dispute resolution strategies for contingencies involving trade secrets protection in China.
