Abstract

Intellectual property had had vivid life forms in China’s own past, but a single scream does not take the audience into an epiphany. Almost every conversation about China’s intellectual property issues covers, implies or reinforces an unverified but self-satisfactory belief that Chinese culture does not appreciate creativity and rewarding knowledge creators. This impression, as we all know, originated from Harvard law professor William Alford whose work has influenced, or misled, “a whole generation” in the understanding of China’s history of intellectual property.
