The developments of intellectual property protection in China after Deng's Southern Tour

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In 1979, when government officials were divided over the establishment
of a patent system, Deng Xiaoping believed that "it is better to have a
patent system". In the following years, when diverse views on
intellectual property legislation emerged, Deng reasoned that the
country lacked sufficient understanding of intellectual property rights
and, therefore, recommended the training of intellectual property
specialists. During his historical Southern Tour (Nanxun) in 1992,
Deng visited a high-technology company in Shenzhen, inquired about
its management of copyrights, and stressed the importance of complying
with international standards on intellectual property.

Accordingly, while Deng encouraged greater efforts toward economic
construction, he also realized that an internationalized intellectual
property protection system was essential to attaining marketization of
the economy as well as scientific and technological advancement, and
thus, the ultimate success of economic reforms and modernization.
This paper, therefore, aims at providing an overview of the developments
of intellectual property protection in China since Deng's Southern Tour.
To facilitate reading, the following discussion is divided into three major
sections: intellectual property legislation from 1980 to 1991, intellectual
property protection since 1992, and additional revisions currently under
consideration.
