China has developed an interpretation of intellectual creation which is not exactly the same as the concept of intellectual property common in the West. Yet it is important for lawyers whose work may be affected by intellectual property law in today’s China to be acutely aware of how the relevant legal regime there works.
Fully informed by the crucial cultural values underlying Chinese law, this authoritative book provides an in-depth examination of how copyright, patents, trademarks, and other forms of intellectual property fare under applicable national, regional, and local laws in China, as well as under international conventions.
Practical and procedural details are fully covered, including such aspects as the following: ∙ legal protection of remedies; ∙ principles of imputation and liability; ∙ protection from counterfeiting and infringement; ∙ protection of business secrets; ∙ right to network dissemination of information; ∙ licensing contracts; ∙ software copyright; ∙ cancellation, revocation, and/or termination of property right; ∙ protection of domain name; and ∙ new plant variety rights.
To underpin and sustain this wealth of practical information, the author draws on his prodigious knowledge of the field to convey an invaluable understanding of the political, philosophical, and moral doctrines influencing intellectual property law in China, and the ways in which such doctrines are applied and continue to influence each other.
