Book Review on Fan Productivity in China
My latest book review on Tianxiang He’s “Copyright and Fan Productivity in China – A Cross-Jurisdictional Perspective” came out recently in the August issue of Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice.
According to the first paragraph:
“A lot has been written on the modern development of copyright law in the People’s Republic of China since the leadership of the country launched its reform movement at the end of the 1970s. China introduced its first modern Copyright Act in 1990 (admittedly, China had introduced industrial property laws much earlier) and amended it in 2001 and 2010 (mainly due to Western, especially US, pressure). In its current form, the Chinese copyright regime resembles Western copyright standards, though with plenty of Chinese characteristics.”
