Imitation to Innovation in China: The Role of Patents in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industries (New Horizons in Intellictual Property)

by Yahong Li
“‘Yahong Li’s pioneering study, Imitation to Innovation in China, breaks new ground in closely examining the extent to which the Chinese government’s patent policies and patent activity by Chinese firms are influencing China’s coming transformation from an imitation-oriented country to an innovation-oriented one. Her combination of theoretical and empirical approaches exploring the links between public policy, patenting activity and technological innovation (commercialization) is an important contribution to development studies, not just for China but for other newly innovative countries as well.’
