To steal a book is an elegant offense : intellectual property law in Chinese civilization by William P Alford( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the law of intellectual property in China from imperial times to the present. It draws on history, politics, economics, sociology, and the arts, and on interviews with officials, business people, lawyers, and perpetrators and victims of "piracy."

In the process, he sheds light on the complex relation between law and political culture in China. The book goes on to examine recent efforts in the People's Republic of China to develop intellectual property law, and uses this example to highlight the broader problems with China's programme of law reform

In doing so
