A unique view of enforcement issues in intellectual property rights
Suggests solutions to some of the problems in the field
A brilliant exposition of some of the unresolved issues in IPR enforcement
After exploring multifaceted issues of IPR enforcement, this book argues that the problems with enforcement are not an actual outcome of Confucian philosophy and "to steal a book" is not an "elegant offence."
This book demonstrates that counterfeiting and piracy are common and inevitable consequences of inadequate economic development. It goes on to state that they are a by-product of a unique set of socioeconomic crises that have their origin in the development of a dysfunctional institutional regime.
Wei Shi examines areas of compatibilities between European and Chinese cultures and analyzes painful lessons from the US-China negotiations over IPR protection.
His book uses the prism of EU-China trade relations to suggest ways to reconcile the minimum standards of the TRIPs Agreement and the specific conditions of particular states.
It also provides insights into unresolved issues such as how and when China’s WTO commitments will be implemented.
