Intellectual Property Theory and Practice: A Critical Examination of China's TRIPS Compliance and Beyond (Paperback)Wenwei Guan (author)
- We can order this
This book explains China's intellectual property perspective in the context of European theories, through a critical examination of intellectual property theory and practice focused on China's compliance with the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). The author's critical review of contemporary intellectual property philosophy suggests that justifying intellectual property protection through Locke or Hegel's property theories internalizes a theoretical paradox.
"Professor Wenwei Guan's treatment of intellectual property law and practice in the PRC offers new perspectives that enrich an already active field of study . . . This book will be a useful contribution to academic and policy discourses examining conceptual and operational dimensions of China's intellectual property protection system and the broader process of China's international engagement."
- Dr. Pitman B. Potter, Professor of Law, University of British Columbia, Canada
"Dr. Guan reminds us of the daunting challenge of the public-private divide in forming and reforming TRIPS regime; how this regime has failed to address development needs and public concerns in developing countries like China; and how TRIPS's `birth defect' can be overcome and its evolution can be put back on the right track."
- Dr. Yahong Li, Associate Professor at Faculty of Law, Hong Kong University
