Elgar Intellectual Property and Global Development series
Edited by Nari Lee, Niklas Bruun and Mingde Li
China is generally considered to be a norm-taker, rather than a norm-maker, especially when it comes to intellectual property law. This article considers the resale right as an example and analyses the impact of the importation of norms in China by providing a view from a Chinese perspective, which is based on a comparative study of the enforcement of the resale right in Europe. Intellectual property (IP), as a mechanism to protect creators and innovators, is a cost that society needs to bear in order to enhance certain activities and encourage more innovation and creation. Chinese artists do not lack the skills and creativeness of famous art masters like Picasso, but they do lack several basic conditions, especially like a well-regulated art market and an effective legal environment that would enable them to achieve the status of a “Chinese Picasso”.
