Abstract

China's Software Regulation 2002 attempted to offer an unreasonably high level of protection that exceeds China's capacity. It can be viewed as a result of the undue influence of the TRIPS and the lobbyists of multinational companies who tried to persuade China that the high-level protection of intellectual property is always good. There existed in China a short-lived resistance, which successfully amended Software Regulation 2002 but regretfully did not lead to further systematic studies. The negative impacts of the TRIPS, which have been long studied vibrantly by a variety of leading scholars in the West, have not yet been sufficiently realised by the Chinese.
