By Julia Fraser for Intellectual Property Watch The recently published book “Chinese Intellectual Property and Technology Laws” provides the “first” overview of Chinese IP and technology law, supported by extensive legal, historical and socioeconomic background to developments in these areas. The book is edited by Rohan Kariyawasam, a solicitor in the UK, law professor at Cardiff University (UK) and visiting professor at Peking University (China). It also includes a foreword by contributor to the book, Jiang Zhipei, former Chief Justice of the IPR Tribunal of the Supreme People’s Court. The book starts with an introduction and recent updates to Chinese patent, trademark and copyright law. It then addresses unfair competition, trade secrets and IP protection under the network environment. Other chapters focus on IP protection in Hong Kong; laws protecting computer software, information technology and e-commerce; new anti-monopoly law and competition; and enforcement of the World Trade Organization Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) and of IP laws in China. Antony Taubman, director of the WTO IP Division, was quoted as saying about the book: ‘The rapid evolution of China from an ‘emerging’ to a mature intellectual property jurisdiction has far-reaching implications for the law, policy and practice of IP, and their links with competition and technology law.” “Produced in the year China rose to fourth rank globally as user of the international patent system,” Taubman said, “this volume is an invaluable guide for the policymaker, the analyst and the practitioner alike, setting a thorough exposition of the substantive law and its application within a broader policy context, and offering a comprehensive, timely overview of an IP system just at the time it begins to assume central significance on the world stage.” Contributors to the book are “some of China’s leading academic experts,” according to the publisher. The book is published by Edward Elgar Publishing, available for purchase here.
