Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that the evolution of the country's intellectual property (IP) regulations is now characterised by a noticeable move towards a more sophisticated regime whose maturity runs in concert with the nation's economic, technological and social development. This progress is part of a wider transition of China's legal system from one that accepted the traditional hierarchical values of "rule of man" to one that exhibits key principles of the "rule of law" that are more typically found in the western legal tradition. In the early years of the 21st Century, China appears to have recognised that the needs of the country are evolving and that complex parts of its legal system, such as IP regulation, need to evolve at the same pace.

Keywords: Chinese intellectual property (IP) regime; Chinese socio-legal system
