Abstract

The outcome of the recent WTO case China – Intellectual Property Rights, mainly concerned with copyright matters, was touted by both the U.S. and China as a victory. Looking beyond the rhetoric, however, shows that the effect of this case on copyright piracy in the real world is limited. The article outlines the case and analyzes its effects. Furthermore, it widens the scope of analysis, to include other factors influencing IP infringement in China, which are crucial in creating and supporting copyright piracy.

Keywords: WTO, China, intellectual property, copyright, piracy
