CPTPP and China's Intellectual Property Rights(IPR)
【摘要】：Intellectual Property Rights(IPR) have played an important role in encouraging and protecting innovation in today's economy as well as upholding the economic order and fair competition of the market. Since joining the World Intellectual Property Organization(WIPO) in 1980, China has continued to establish and improve relevant intellectual property laws. A comprehensive IPR legal system has now been established that covers the main IPR issues. In 2019, for the first time,the number of China's PCT international patent applications surpassed that of the US to rank first in the world. China has become a major player in intellectual property. However,with the development of the digital economy and the raising of international IPR standards,there are challenges in China's IPR system.These include how regional protectionism affects the fairness in terms of IPR's law enforcement, the compatibility among various intellectual property rules, discrepancies in comparison with international IPR standards,and the quality of the intellectual property itself.
