Abstract

The paper argues that China is building capacity to grant, use and enforce patents. Its interests in the patent system are different to many G77 countries. The paper considers three questions. Can China make the patent system work for it? If so, how will the US respond? What should the weaker members of the G77 do in light of the fact that the leaders of the G77 are no longer interested in dealing with the structural disadvantages that the patent system perpetuates?
