In the 1980’s, China began its efforts to establish a modern legal system protecting intellectual property rights.  The country has made great progress over the past thirty years in bringing China closer to the international norms of IP protection.  However, significant challenges remain at present, as seen from the ongoing dispute between China and the U.S.  This talk will discuss China’s past efforts and accomplishments and the remaining obstacles for further improving its IP legal system.
