The article discusses the history of intellectual property (IP) protection regulations in China. In 1984, the Chinese government established its first patent law because they realized the importance of protecting the rights of foreign companies collaborating with their Chinese partners and fostering a creative environment for technology advancement of Chinese companies. The State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) has made several efforts to promote the IP protection environment in the country.
