This article explores what it means for the Chinese intellectual property system to hit 35. It begins by briefly recapturing the system's three phases of development. It discusses the system's evolution from its birth all the way to the present. The article then explores three different meanings of a middle-aged Chinese intellectual property system – one for intellectual property reform, one for China, and one for the TRIPS Agreement and the global intellectual property community.

A Critical Analysis

Although over the recent years, the theory of mobilities has gained the attention of many disciplines and theorists, there are some points that merit further attention. John Urry, who played a crucial role in contemporary sociology as an authorative voice, envisaged an all-encompassing theory that explained our inclination toward velocity and the rise of the travel and tourism industry. This chapter rests on the conceptual limitations of Urry’s development, laying the foundations toward a new sociology of immobility for decades to come.
Strategic innovation for sustainable growth: reviews of existing capabilities theories, and new propositions
Driving Congruence in Capabilities
Strategic innovation dynamically brings about strategic positioning through new products, services and business models, and is a dynamic view of strategy that enables a large corporation to maintain its competitiveness and establish sustainable growth. For these reasons, large corporations have to be innovators that can reinforce their existing positions (businesses) through incremental innovation, while at the same time constantly renew or destroy existing business through radical innovation. From detailed reviews of existing capabilities theories (resource-based theory of the firm, dynamic capabilities, and so on), and further theories deeply related to the characteristics of corporate or organizational capabilities and field data on sustainable growth of global corporations, this chapter presents the concept of a “Capabilities Map” derived from existing research into the characteristics of dynamic capabilities responding to environmental conditions such as dynamic temporal shifts and factors of uncertainly.
